Beth Zemsky told compelling stories of 4 decades of social justice work. Starting with her coming out story in college, how AIDS affected her personally as she lost her twin brother, and her role in bringing the Tretter collection to the University of Minnesota. 
Following the event, attendees were invited to the depths of the University archives to see the Tretter Collection in person. The Jean-Nickolaus Tretter Collection in Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Studies houses over 3,000 linear feet of material about the GLBT experience.

Video recording of Beth's story is archived with the Tretter Collection.
