The internet sometimes provides a rare opportunity for us to look back at our recent history. When you stumble upon something as specific as a public access channel’s video covering ROSMY in the mid 90′s, well you’ve hit GayRVA gold.
Details are thin, but it appears the video was part of a national public access show called Network Q Out Across America which ran from 1992 to 1996. A Youtube channel for the show exists now, and it has tons of content from the show all archived.
One of those videos happens to be a special segment on ROSMY.
It’s crazy to look back almost 20 years and see how the organization, the city, and attitudes in VA have changed. (And If I’m not mistaken, the interview with the then ED John Klein took place at Barcode.)
