Arts & Culture

Recognized by the Allentown Arts Commission with the 2018 Arts Ovation Award for Outstanding Achievement in Literary Arts


LGBT communities have a rich history in the arts. 

Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center believes that celebrating LGBT artists, writers, and filmmakers is central to the vibrancy of our local LGBT community. We work to bring high-quality arts and culture programs to our community. 

Our arts & culture programs are intended to be fun, educational, and social community events. All arts & culture programs are sober social events at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center where no alcohol is served. 

Our Current Programs:

The Fine Art Galleries: Professionally-curated fine art galleries celebrating LGBT artists and LGBT-themed art

The LGBT Library: Professionally-staffed LGBT library with a 2000-volume collection and regular author talks and community book discussions 

Reel Queer Film Series: Presenting free screenings of LGBT-themed independent, arthouse, and documentary films

Art History from a Queer Perspective: Lectures in art history

Our Arts & Culture Programs team includes:

  • Adrian Shanker, Executive Director
