iRead Book Club: Queer Intentions
May 8 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
This program is available virtually or in person.
In Queer Intentions: A (Personal) Journey Through LGBTQ+ Culture, Amelia Abraham combines intrepid journalism with her own personal experience in her search for answers to urgent questions about LGBTQ+ rights as well as the broader question of what it means to be queer in 2019. With curiosity, good humor, and disarming openness, Abraham takes the reader on a thought-provoking and entertaining journey. Join her as she cries at the first same-sex marriage in Britain, loses herself in the world’s biggest drag convention in L.A., marches at Pride parades across Europe, visits both a transgender model agency and the Anti-Violence Project in New York to understand the extremes of trans life today, parties in the clubs of Turkey’s underground LGBTQ+ scene, and meets a genderless family in progressive Stockholm.
There is no cost for you to attend this event, but registration is required.
