Guest Episode: Sidedoor: Lucy Hicks Anderson
Known for her smashing parties, lighter-than-air soufflés, and comedic wit, Lucy Hicks Anderson never let anyone tell her how to live her life—not even the courts. When her gender was put on trial in the 1940s, the publicity around her case made her one the first documented Black transgender figures in American history.Find more Sidedoor episodes at si.edu/sidedoor or wherever you get your podcasts.
