    Book Talk: The Ultimate Guide For Gay Dads

    rosswood_book_event.png

    The Library at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center presents a book talk with Eric Rosswood, author of The Ultimate Guide for Gay Dads on April 5th at 6pm.

    The Ultimate Guide for Gay Dads covers all the essential things that other parenting books do, but it removes the pieces that focus on mothers and replaces them with information relevant to gay dads. For example, you won't find information on how to hold a baby and get the perfect nipple latch during breast-feeding. Instead, the book compares donor breast milk and formula to help gay dads decide which is right for their baby. It also covers things like parental leave when it comes to adoption and surrogacy, birth certificate issues, how to find LGBT-friendly pediatricians, how to find LGBT-friendly schools, what to do on Mother's Day, conversations that gay dads have with their kids that straight parents don't typically have with theirs, and so much more. The Ultimate Guide for Gay Dads is filled with tips, tricks, and hacks from pediatricians, school educators, lawyers, and tons of other gay parents. It also includes a foreword by Golden Globe nominated writer, director, and producer, Greg Berlanti, best known for his work as executive producer and co-creator of The CW’s Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl. The Ultimate Guide for Gay Dads is jam packed with critical information that will help you build confidence and become the awesome gay dad you were meant to be!

    Author, Eric Rosswood, is an in-demand authority and commentator on LGBTQ issues including civil rights, parenting, marriage, and politics. He is a major influencer on social media with over 100,000 followers on Twitter alone, and he has led panels on LGBTQ parenting issues for organizations such as the Family Equality Council and the Modern Family Alliance. His bestselling book, Journey to Same-Sex Parenthood, was voted the Best Parenting Book in both the 2017 Readers' Favorite International Book Award Contest and the 2017 IAN Book of the Year Awards. Rosswood resides in New York with his husband, son, their two cats, and a dog named Mr. Buggles.

    Gay San Diego said, "'The Ultimate Guide for Gay Dads' is a rich resource of knowledge that will prove a useful tool in any gay father's diaper bag."

    This is a social sober event. No alcohol will be served.

    Community Book Discussion: Ain't Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me Around

    CBD_Barbara_Smith.png

    The Library at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center invites the community to participate in the April 2018 Community Book Discussion featuring Ain't Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me Around: Forty Years of Movement Building with Barbara Smith edited by Alethia Jones and Virginia Eubanks. The Community Book Discussion is an intergenerational discussion facilitated by Mary Foltz, Associate Professor of English at Lehigh University

    As an organizer, writer, publisher, scholar-activist, and elected official, Barbara Smith has played key roles in multiple social justice movements, including Civil Rights, feminism, lesbian and gay liberation, anti-racism, and Black feminism. Her four decades of grassroots activism forged collaborations that introduced the idea that oppression must be fought on a variety of fronts simultaneously, including gender, race, class, and sexuality. By combining hard-to-find historical documents with new unpublished interviews with fellow activists, this book uncovers the deep roots of today’s “identity politics” and “intersectionality” and serves as an essential primer for practicing solidarity and resistance.

    Reviews of Ain't Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me Around:

    "A wonderful read on solidarity, resistance, and outsider politics." -- The Advocate

    "Barbara Smith is everything. So is this book ... [it] challenges us all to dig deeper in our work and never stop pursuing actual, authentic liberation." -- Autostraddle

    "Barbara Smith is a creator of modern feminism as a writer, organizer, editor, publisher, and scholar. Now she has added to her decades as an activist outside the system by becoming an elected official who truly listens, represents, and creates bridges to a common good. She has shown us that democracy is a seed that can only be planted where we are." -- Gloria Steinem

    Community Book Discussions at The Library at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center are made possible thanks to sponsorship from Lehigh University's Humanities Center, Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program, Pride Center, and Mellon Digital Humanities Initiative

    The first ten people to sign up can email ariel@bradburysullivancenter.org to receive a free copy of the book
