Hugh Ryan | INQUIRY

2019-11-1301:27:09

Renessa and Jonah catch up about work and the NYC Marathon a couple of weeks ago (which means we can finally stop talking about it until next year). We kept this week’s Queer News & Culture brief, and talked a little bit about 45’s deplorable efforts to let faith-based groups exclude LGBTQ parents, and the promising upsurge in queer characters on network TV shows.We then dive right into our interview with the smart, inquisitive, and handsome Hugh Ryan! Hugh is a writer, curator, and speaker in New York City. His work is about queer politics, culture, and history, and his new book, When Brooklyn Was Queer which is a groundbreaking exploration of the LGBTQ history of Brooklyn, from the early days of Walt Whitman in the 1850s up through the women who worked at the Brooklyn Navy Yard during World War II, and beyond. We learn about how the inquiry into this research was inspired and carried out to write this book, some of the groups and specific people who were featured in it, and applying for grants. Hugh also shares a bit about his background and his other areas of work, which include teaching and working with the Urban Justice Center in NY (and maybe being a voice actor in the future?!) INTERVIEW STARTS AT 24:09Intro links:A new Trump administration rule could hurt LGBTQ youth in foster careStudy shows LGBTQ characters are at a record high on network TVLGBTQ Representation On TV Is Up Again, A GLAAD Report SaysAtypical Star opens up about being queerInterview links:Hugh Ryan’s WebsiteWhen Brooklyn Was Queer - Order the book!!!Follow Hugh on TwitterHugh’s PatreonLesbian Herstory ArchivesWeeksville Heritage CenterSong: “Freestyle” by Young M.A. (from “M.A. The Mixtape”)----------------Follow The Queer CreativeInstagram: @thequeercreativepodcastTwitter: @creativequeerYouTube: The Queer Creativewww.thequeercreative.com
TQC took a week off, but we're back with some personal and podcast updates! This week we're also joined by new friend of the pod Clayton for our very first "Millennial Moment" segment, where we discuss queer topics with someone younger (and smarter) than Jonah and Renessa (because let's face it, they're barely getting by). The topic this week is the term Latinx—Where did it come from and how/where is it used? Clayton shares his Latin roots and helps break it down. Our creative guest interview is Daniel Djuro-Goiricelaya. Daniel is not only a deep friend of the pod, he's also a Venezuelan-born, NYC-based interdisciplinary artist, and co-founder of El Patio De Mi Casa, an artist project and pop-up exhibition space for emerging artists. We talk art, design, materials, color (and reclaiming colors), culture, the importance of community, activism, meditation, and balancing work/life and a relationship. Jonah and Daniel also bond over preparing to run the NYC Marathon this weekend for the first time!INTERVIEW STARTS AT 46:07Show notes and links:Follow Daniel on Instagram: @ddjuroFollow Daniel’s available works: @bodegacolorEl Patio de Mi Casa: @lptdmcsDaniel’s website: www.ddgart.comTrevor Project LGBTQ+ History QuizFollow Clayton on Instagram: @amerikanichezigeuneLatinx comic by Terry BlasWhen Brooklyn Was QueerTinderbox: The Rise of the Up Stairs Lounge Fire and the Rise of Gay LiberationPansy BoyJulie Goldman and Kamala Harris on CNN LGBTQ Town Hall Debate“Pimpin” track by Megan Thee Stallion“Saunter” track by Acra (a queer Venezuelan electronic music artist)

Jonah updates us on his recent running accident and upcoming anal surgery, and Renessa introduces the pod's first "Bisexual Break" segment during which she potentially opens a can of worms regarding bisexual versus pansexual identification. We're then joined by the very sweet Bernardo Puccio, who has been an interior designer to the stars over the last 50 years. He has written his memoir, 13 Pieces of Unmatched Luggage …And My Poodle: A Story of Survival, in which he documents everything from growing up pretty in the south in the 1960s, becoming an interior designer, hobnobbing with celebrities, marrying his husband Orin Kennedy, struggling with illness, and his love for his pets.His book tour dates will take him to NYC on Saturday Oct. 26 and Fort Lauderdale, FL on Sunday, Nov. 3, so check him out if you’re in the area. And there are upcoming book signing appearances in Dallas and Palm Springs. Find out more at bernardopuccio.com.Interview starts at 40:48Also, keep an eye out on @thequeercreative podcast or @lezhangoutpod for ticket info for The L Word viewing party in Boston on December 8th.
Jonah and Renessa's updates this week include Madonna's latest NYC performance, Drag Race UK, the onePULSE Foundation's National Pulse Memorial & Museum design contest finalists, Jonah's laundry list of goals in therapy, and making fun of each other's feet and thumbs. They then sit down with London-based artist Paul Harfleet to discuss The Pansy Project, which was catalyzed by a personal experience for him. Paul plants pansies at the site of homophobic abuse, and the flower is then photographed in its location, entitled after the abuse, and posted on the pansyproject.org. His photographs have been exhibited internationally. The Pansy Project has brought Paul around the world to memorialize homophobic hate crimes and was the focus of the documentary film Les Pensées De Paul. Paul also wrote and illustrated the book Pansy Boy and does workshops at schools across the UK, US, and Canada.Interview starts at 35:14Show links:Paul Harfleet and The Pansy Project: http://www.thepansyproject.comInstagram & Twitter: @thepansyprojectonePULSE Foundation Memorial & Museum Design Competition
TQC is back for a second season! Jonah and Renessa catch up about recent travels and news, introduce (and poke fun at) the pod’s new Producer, JC Cortez, and attempt to create their first YouTube video version of the episode (it's kind of sloppy guys, but also kind of fun). Big shoutout to Jason Rivera who created season 2's original music, thank you Jason, we love you! They are then joined by the most handsome and the most pretty fellow podcasters there are, Julie Goldman and Brandy Howard from Dumb, Gay Politics! Julie and Brandy share their thoughts/rage/emotions about the political climate, some tales of the Hollywood hustle, and what it takes to get a podcast off the ground and make some money at it. A very special thank you to Jason Rivera who created original music for Season 2, thanks Jay we love you!Interview starts at 35:20Links:Dumb, Gay Politics Podcast - www.julieandbrandy.com, @dumbgaypolitics, @mrjuliegoldman, @peeweethepeoplescouchMusic - Jason Rivera @jayriv81 twitter & instaProducer - JC Cortez - @a11amerjcStacey Abrams / Fair Fight - www.fairfight.comPhotography - Ella Farrell Photography - @ellafarrellphotography, @ellafarrellweddings, www.ellafarrellphotography.comMakeup - Najeema - @_najeema, www.najeema.comMarket Floral Studio - @market_floral_studio, www.marketfloralstudio.com“An Open Letter to Carribbean Men, From Caribbean Women”
