Valley 101 podcast sheds light on Arizona's LGBTQ history

Marshall Shore, also known as The Hip Historian, goes in search of Arizona's hidden LGBTQ+ history in the latest Valley 101 pod. Shore has made a name for himself by sharing the state's lavender past through tours, trivia, speaking engagements, and his virtual happy hours on twitch.tv/hiphistorian.

Shore works as project manager for the Arizona LGBTQ History Project, and has worked with Arizona State University to create an archive of the community.
