    Community Book Discussion: black dove

    CBD_Black_Dove.png

    The LGBT Library at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center invites participation in our January Community Book Discussion featuring Black Dove: Mamá, Mi'jo, and Me by Ana Castillo. Black Dove was the 2017 finalist for the Lambda Literary Award for bisexual non-fiction and the text looks at what it means to be a single, brown, feminist parent in a world of mass incarceration, racial profiling, and police brutality. Through startling humor and love, Castillo weaves intergenerational stories traveling from Mexico City to Chicago. And in doing so, she narrates some of America's most heated political debates and urgent social injustices through the oft-neglected lens of motherhood and family. NBC News calls it an "exquisite memoir [...] full of compassion and maternal love."

    Community Book Discussions at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center are facilitated by Mary Foltz, Associate Professor of English at Lehigh University.

    Free copies of the book are available for the first ten to sign up. Email kathleen@bradburysullivancenter.org to sign up.

    This program is sponsored by Lehigh University's Humanities Center, Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program, Pride Center, and Mellon Digital Humanities Initiative, as well as the LGBT Library at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center.

    This is a sober social event at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center. No alcohol will be served.

    Artist Reception: Dead & Alive

    Dead___Alive_exhibit.png

    The Fine Art Galleries at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center welcome our community to attend the artist reception for Dead & Alive: Floral Photography by Richard Begbie and Will Hübscher. The exhibit, curated by Deborah Rabinsky, is on display from January 7th through February 15th, 2019 with an artist reception on January 17th from 6-8pm.

    Dead & Alive presents fine art floral photography by two gay male photographers from the Lehigh Valley whose works capture flowers at different moments of life. The artists draw from both personal and universal symbolism of the cycle of life. Begbie's fragrant and iconic shots embody the essence and the life of his floral subjects, while Hübscher's more abstract works feature colorful and creative placements of dead flowers that hold memories encapsulated in time. This exhibit challenges the gendered assumptions about the subjects of male photographers and prepares viewers for the Spring season to come.

    This is a sober social event at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center. No alcohol will be served.
