Fettuccine Forum

Out in Idaho: Queer Spaces Beyond Boise  

Feat. Lisa McClain and Rachel Taylor

Join us for an uplifting exploration through storytelling and images of the places and spaces throughout Idaho where LGBTQ+ people have built and shaped their lives. While the assumption exists that if one wants to be out in Idaho, one must come to Boise, Dr. Lisa McClain, Professor of History and Gender Studies at Boise State University, along with graduate student and teaching assistant Rachel Taylor, describe this community’s journey from the 1970s onward, examining where they stayed, came home to, traveled through, created, or used temporarily to find one another, building community in many places within the Gem State.

From the Margins to the Center of History in Idaho and the West

The 2022-2023 Fettuccine Forum, a four-event series, features speakers who will offer perspectives on Black, Indigenous, LGBTQ+, and Asian American histories, activism, and community building in Idaho and the West. These stories, experiences, and narratives are often underrepresented in traditional histories.

These free, hour-long events take place at 6 p.m. (MT) in-person in the Maryanne Jordan Council Chambers at Boise City Hall and virtually over ZOOM with automated live subtitles. Pre-registration is required to join virtually. Cash bar available for in-person guests. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Support from the Office of the Mayor, Boise State Public Radio, and the Department of History at Boise State University all make the Forum possible.
