    Pride Guides Exhibit

    pride_guides_archive_exhibit.png

    The Lehigh Valley LGBT Community Archive, a program of Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center in partnership with the Trexler Library at Muhlenberg College, is proud to present our FIRST exhibit of materials from the archive! Join us for Pride Guides and the Early Years of Lehigh Valley Pride Festivals on display in the Fine Art Galleries at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center from January 3 through February 21, 2020 with a reception on January 29 from 6-8pm.

    This exhibit provides images from the first eleven years of Lehigh Valley Pride and provides context about the needs, challenges, opportunities, and advocacy for the local LGBT community from 1994-2004. The exhibition of Lehigh Valley Pride Guides includes a timeline from 1994-2004 with a brief discussion of major themes addressed in each featured annual publication. While a unique aspect of each Guide is discussed on the timeline, the exhibit also traces common topics that appeared frequently in publications: politics, health, art, sponsorship, remembrance, and people.

    The exhibit is curated by Mary Foltz, Malaïka Gutekunst, Mel Kitchen, Robin Lee, Maggie Tarmey, and Alysse Weinberg and the project was created with support from Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center, Lehigh University's Office of Creative Inquiry, Southside Initiative, and Pride Center, and Muhlenberg College's Trexler Library.

    If You’ve Got it, Pap It: Informational Sessions on Cervical Pap Testing

    Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center is proud to announce that it has developed partnerships with four public libraries to promote cervical cancer screenings for LGBT community members. This effort is part of a health outreach in public libraries program through the National Network of Libraries of Medicine.

    Through partnerships with the Easton, Bethlehem, Allentown, and Eastern Monroe Public Libraries, Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center will host informational sessions at each library about cervical cancer screenings. 

    Participants can expect to learn:

    • What they need to know about cervical cancer
    • Common causes and screening recommendations
    • Referrals to welcoming providers

    The sessions will take place:

    • Monday, February 3rd - 10:30am and 6:30pm at Eastern Monroe Public Library
    • Wednesday, February 5th - 10:30am and 6:30pm at Allentown Public Library
    • Wednesday, February 12th - 10:30am and 6:30pm at Bethlehem Area Public Library
    • Tuesday, February 18th - 1:00pm and 6:30pm at Easton Area Public Library. 

    "According to the American Cancer Society, lesbian and bisexual women seek out and receive fewer routine cancer screenings than the rest of the population. For transgender or non-binary people assigned female at birth but who do not identify as women, there are frequently fears of healthcare discrimination as well as disassociation with gynecologic body parts.” said Jessica LaPorte, Health Programs and Supportive Services Manager at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center.  “The CDC recommends cervical Pap tests for people with cervixes every 3-5 years depending on age and past test results.”

    Adrian Shanker, Executive Director of Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center added  “We know that early detection saves lives. But we also know that LGBT people assigned female at birth are not receiving the preventative screenings needed to detect cancer when treatment is most effective. That’s why we are proud to be able to partner with our local public libraries to educate the community and encourage more frequent screenings for the LGBT population in the Greater Lehigh Valley.”
