About the Event
The Tea Shook History Committee: Establishing the First History of Women Loving Women in Colorado
Guest Speaker: David Duﬃeld
This program will focus on the history of women loving women in Colorado, with an overview of what we know so far. 2020 marks the centennial of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution establishing a woman’s right to vote/Women’s Suﬀrage and Women’s History Month is celebrated in March, so let’s see what this looks like today … let’s tell some of the stories with a Colorado backdrop and from an LGBTQ perspective!
David says: “With the Colorado LGBTQ History Project, we have realized enough resources to put together the ﬁrst history, from Denver’s beginning to the present, of women loving women. Our work focuses on three periods: 1870–1920, 1920–1970, and 1970–2020. Within each period there are stories of women loving women and from all walks of life. Our goal is put these stories in perspective via a document, and to organize the story. What we know now is not as great as what we still do not know, but with this work, we will help put it all together.”
This is history you’ll ﬁnd nowhere else!
