    Reel Queer Film Series presents Saturday Church

    Saturday_Church_RQFS.pngThe Reel Queer Film Series at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center presents a free screening on Saturday Church on February 7th at 6:30pm. A talkback and dessert reception will follow.

    SATURDAY CHURCH tells the story of 14-year-old Ulysses, a shy and effeminate boy, who finds himself coping with new responsibilities as “man of the house” after the death of his father. Living alongside his mother, younger brother, and conservative aunt, Ulysses is also struggling with questions about his gender identity. He finds an escape by creating a world of fantasy filled with dance and music. Ulysses’ journey takes a turn for the better when he encounters a vibrant transgender community, who take him to “Saturday Church,” a program for LGBTQ youth. Ulysses manages to keep his two worlds apart; appeasing his aunt and discovering his passion for the NYC ball scene, and voguing, until his double life is revealed. Ulysses must find the courage to be who he truly is, all while risking losing those he cares about most.

    Community Book Discussion: No Ashes in the Fire

    CBD_no_ashes.png

    The LGBT Library at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center invites participation in our February Community Book Discussion featuring No Ashes in the Fire: Coming of Age Black & Free in America by Darnell L. Moore. bell hooks says "No Ashes in the Fire is part memoir, part social commentary. Darnell honestly tells his story with an intensity and passion that offers readers a deep understanding of a gay black male coming of age who open-heartedly claims his identity, and who embraces redemptive suffering. Ultimately, he reaches out to everyone with an inclusive love." The text is a story of beauty and hope-and an honest reckoning with family, with place, and with what it means to be free. Esquire calls it "a staggering work that calls into question the truths we assume about ourselves and those among us."

    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 is 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.

    Fracturing_Gender.png

    The Fine Art Galleries at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center welcome our community to attend the artist reception for Fracturing Gender: Beauty & The Body Politic by Katie Hovencamp. The exhibit, curated by Deborah Rabinsky, is on display from February 19th through March 29th, 2019 with an artist reception on February 21st from 6-8pm.

    Fracturing Gender is an exhibit that fractures cultural constructs such as gender, beauty, and the body politic to expose, examine, and critique their social and historical assumptions. Through feminist and body-positive lenses, Hovencamp's work challenges viewers to rethink conventional standards of beauty and hegemonic gender roles. Through performance, drawings, and sculpture, this exhibit fractures the status quo to irreparable fragments.

    About the Artist: Katie Hovencamp began her professional studies at the Baum School of Art in Allentown, PA and received her BFA from Arizona State University in 2009 and her MFA from the Pennsylvania State University in 2014. Hovencamp has exhibited her work in numerous exhibitions within the United States, The United Kingdom, and Latvia. Her work has been reviewed in Sculpture Magazine, Chicago Reader, and several online and print publications. She was the recipient of the Outstanding Student Achievement Award for Contemporary Sculpture in 2014 and the University Graduate Fellowship at the Pennsylvania State University in 2012. Hovencamp has participated in residency programs at Vermont Studio Center, Serde Interdisciplinary artist group in Latvia, and the Tyrone Guthrie Centre in Ireland. In 2016, she was awarded an artist residency with International Sculpture Center at Mana Contemporary in Jersey City, NJ. She has taught at various institutions such as the Edna Vihel Center for the Arts, Totts Gap Art Institute, Pennsylvania State University, Harrisburg Area Community College, and most recently Keystone College.
