Glenda Russell, Queer Historian, on ‘Sharing Boulder’ Podcast


Glenda Russell, member of OBC's Advocacy & Public Policy committee, regular blog contributor, and LGBTQ+ historian, was recently interviewed on the podcast Sharing Boulder about the LGBTQ movement as it has unfolded in Boulder and beyond. Their discussion includes the struggle to get “sexual orientation” included in Boulder’s human rights ordinance, which was added in 1987 via a narrowly adopted ballot measure. A similar ballot measure had been crushed 13 years earlier.


Russell’s story includes interesting characters such as Penfield Tate, a tireless human rights activist for whom Boulder's municipal building is now named; Tim Fuller, considered a more radical liberal who ran on a tenant’s rights platform; and Glenda herself, who took notes at many contentious city council meetings during this time.
