About the Speaker

Hugh Ryan is a writer, curator and author. Back at CMU by popular demand, Ryan is the author of "The Women's House of Detention: A Queer History of a Forgotten Prison," winner of a 2023 Stonewall Book Award from the American Library Association. His first book, “When Brooklyn Was Queer,” was a New York Times Editor’s Pick. His writing has appeared in The New York Times, Tin House, Buzzfeed, the LA Review of Books, Out Magazine and many others. His lecture will look at the changing nature of LGBTQ+ identity in America today, and how this strange, exciting and sometimes frightening moment we are in has direct parallels to the changes that happened in queer identity at the end of the 19th century.
