Charlotte, your interview with Lisa is outstanding, both personal and historic, a bird's eye view of the on-the-ground state of affairs around Stonewall. Lisa's detailed description of Stormé's life is invaluable and must be preserved for generations to come. I am so grateful you've shared Lisa's voice with the world.
