Jeanne Cordova

When We Were Outlaws
Spinsters Ink
In Conversation with Achy Obejas
In her sweeping memoir, groundbreaking queer journalist Jeanne Cordova
presents a raw and intimate chronicle of an activist torn between conflicting personal
longing and political goals. When We Were Outlaws presents the true story of a brash
young radical lesbian during the early struggles for gay and women’s rights. Featuring an
introduction by renowned historian Lillian Faderman, When We Were Outlaws paints a
vivid portrait of political engagement and the search for self-identity, set within the
maelstrom of 1970s social and sexual revolutions. Tonight’s program presents Cordova
in conversation with two-time Lambda Award–winning novelist (Ruins, Days of Awe)
and Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Achy Obejas.
