July 22, 2021
Kyle Long talks with activist Mary Byrne. You may have heard of her work advocating for the LGBTQ+ community in Indiana, but Byrne also had a significant role in Hoosier music history. From 1978 to 1984, Byrne was the owner of Labyris, a feminist nightclub and music venue that hosted some of the biggest names in women’s music. She also served as the director of the National Women’s Music Festival.
