Call Me Mother
Did you know there were alternative sexualities before 1980? It’s true, and Shon Faye’s interview series takes us into the lives of these LGBTQIA+ elders. One week it’s a 73-year-old spiritual seeker who traveled across America in the 60s, living with the Baha’i, the Amish and Scientologists. The next we’re in the 1970s, talking to a ‘lesbian punk’ trailblazer. Over time, the show builds to a series of period pieces in the timeline of gay culture – and a series of often moving life lessons from those who got there first.
