From Native Times to Now: A Tour through the History of LGBT People in the United States
Thursday, October 11 from 7-8pm in Kingsley
LGBT history did not start with Will & Grace, or even the fabled Stonewall Riots. LGBT people have always been a part of the American story and, in this lecture, Kevin Jennings (a co-founder of LGBT History Month and author of the first textbook on LGBT history, Becoming Visible) will give an overview of the LGBT experience in America, beginning with the “two-spirit” people of the pre-Columbian era and ending with today’s vibrant LGBT movement. This talk coincides with LGBT History Month every October and National Coming Out Day every October 11.
