From Nastasia Khmelnitski’s interview with Meryl Meisler for WÜL Magazine:

Meryl shares with us stories from the ’80s when she worked as an art teacher in a school in Bushwick. We also discuss the change in attitudes towards diversity and inclusion, as Meryl says, “It was unimaginable to me, as lesbian teaching in 1980s Bushwick, that the neighborhood would become an epicenter for the drag, burlesque, and LGBTQ community decades later.”
