Abstract

In her interview, Tania Abdulahad discusses her life in DC and the DC Gay and Lesbian community, particularly her work with the Sapphire Sapphos and later her more recent work with the DC school system. Arriving in Washington DC in 1978, Abdulahad recounts her contributions to various social activist groups and especially highlights her relations to artist and social developments in the city. Prodimently through the Sapphire Sapphos, Abdulahad made strides across multiple different organizations in the 80’s and 90’s. She also reflects on her life and the world today, and the loss of tolerance and acceptance that has grown in the past five years, setting back many social justice movements.
