This year marks 50 years since Fenway Health was founded by activists and nursing students who shared a common belief: that health care is a right, not a privilege. Fenway’s history isn’t just about the building of a health center, however – it’s about the building of a community. We are forever in debt to the folks who have done – and continue to do – the hard work of community building over these five decades. Today, let’s hear one of their stories.
In the latest episode of Fenway Health’s Pride in Our Health podcast, we chat with Paul Glass. Paul has a long history of working to improve health care for marginalized people and creating community spaces. His work with Fenway includes championing a groundbreaking study on HIV and men of color for The Fenway Institute, and collaborating with the LGBTQIA+ Aging Project to address the needs of queer and trans elders of color.
