    The LGBT Library at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center, in partnership with Lehigh University's Digital Humanities Program, Women, Gender & Sexuality Studies Program, and The Pride Center, presents a community book discussion on Janet Mock's New York Times bestselling memoir, Redefining Realness. 

    Join on July 13th at 6pm for a facilitated discussion with Mary Foltz, Associate Professor of English at Lehigh University, about the book. Thanks to generous support from Lehigh University's Digital Humanities Program, there are 20 free copies of Mock's book available to the community for people who sign up early. Email ariel@bradburysullivancenter.org to sign up. 

    New York Times Bestseller • Winner of the 2015 WOMEN'S WAY Book Prize • Goodreads Best of 2014 Semi-Finalist • Books for a Better Life Award Finalist • Lambda Literary Award Finalist • Time Magazine “30 Most Influential People on the Internet” • American Library Association Stonewall Honor Book

    In her profound and courageous New York Times bestseller, Janet Mock establishes herself as a resounding and inspirational voice for the transgender community—and anyone fighting to define themselves on their own terms.

    With unflinching honesty and moving prose, Janet Mock relays her experiences of growing up young, multiracial, poor, and trans in America, offering readers accessible language while imparting vital insight about the unique challenges and vulnerabilities of a marginalized and misunderstood population. Though undoubtedly an account of one woman’s quest for self at all costs, Redefining Realness is a powerful vision of possibility and self-realization, pushing us all toward greater acceptance of one another—and of ourselves—showing as never before how to be unapologetic and real.

    Artist Reception & Talk: Vladimir Rios and Lester Blum

    Lester_Blum_exhibit.png

    The Fine Art Galleries at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center presents Warrior of Hope and I Still Remember, photographic narratives created by Vladimir Rios and photographed by Lester Blum.

    Warrior of Hope and I Still Remember were both created to focus mainly on HIV/AIDS.

    Warrior of Hope was created with a specific vision.  While the Warrior offers hope to all against inequality and injustice, his primary focus is to honor those who fought the HIV/AIDS battle and lost as well as offer solace to those currently fighting the war with hope for a time when the ravages of the disease will be eradicated from the earth. The exhibit has previously been exhibited at the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay & Lesbian Art, the SAGE Center Midtown NYC, The Pride Center of Staten Island, and The Center on 4th in Santa Ana, CA. 

    I Still Remember is an epic, compelling photographic narrative which tells a powerful and moving story of the quest for love, devastation, and remembrance.  The story is a fictionalized compilation of the lifestyle of many gay men of the 1980's/into the early 1990’s.  The exhibit commemorates those who have passed from HIV/AIDS related causes and to help educate a younger generation about the early years of the disease. The exhibit has previously been exhibited at the LGBTQ Center in Durham, NC, The Pride Center of Staten Island, and the SAGE Center Midtown NYC. 

    Learn more about “I Still Remember,” “Warrior of Hope,” and Lester Blum’s photography work at www.lesterblumphotography.com.

    The two exhibits are curated by Deborah Rabinsky and will be on display from June 28 through July 30, 2017 with the artist reception on July 20th from 6-8pm.

    The artist reception is a sober social event. No alcohol will be served.
