Interview of Carolyn Connolly

Carolyn Connolly begins with her difficult childhood in a blue-collar Irish-Italian family in Flatlands, Brooklyn, her entry into metal scenes of NYC, and her radicalization into the Love and Rage Anarchist Federation. Later Carolyn is hired as the first trans woman employee at Babeland, a NYC feminist sex toy store featured in other interviews about their later unionization, and becomes active in a national scene of radical trans writers. Carolyn also considers her sobriety, and leaving NYC through moving to New Paltz in the Hudson Valley of New York State.
