    In April of 2016, Pennsylvania legalized medical marijuana for Pennsylvania residents affected by 17 serious medical conditions. Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center, in partnership with Lehigh Valley Norml, is offering medical marijuana enrollment assistance on the 2nd Tuesdays of the month from 4-6pm to help eligible Pennsylvania residents apply for the state Medical Marijuana ID card. Computers are available for the application process.

    The medical marijuana enrollment events are only to help people with the application for the state Medical Marijuana ID card.  To be eligible, you must be a Pennsylvania resident and be diagnosed with a serious medical condition. In order to enroll on the state's website, attendees must bring their driver's license or state-issued ID, must be 18 or older, and are required to have an active phone number and email address. 

    Pennsylvania law defines "serious medical conditions" as any one of the following:

    • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
    • Autism
    • Cancer
    • Crohn’s Disease
    • Damage to the nervous tissue of the spinal cord with objective neurological indication of intractable spasticity

    Some of these serious medical conditions are experienced at higher rates in the LGBT community.

    Community Book Discussion: The Fact of a Body

    CBD_The_Fact_of_a_Body.pngThe LGBT Library at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center invites participation in our May Community Book Discussion featuring The Fact of a Body by Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich. The Fact of a Body is a Lambda Literary Award winner, which Vogue calls “A True Crime Masterpiece” and the text is an intellectual and emotional thriller that is also a different kind of murder mystery, THE FACT OF A BODY is a book not only about how the story of one crime was constructed -- but about how we grapple with our own personal histories. Along the way it tackles questions about the nature of forgiveness, and if a single narrative can ever really contain something as definitive as the truth. This groundbreaking, heart-stopping work, ten years in the making, shows how the law is more personal than we would like to believe -- and the truth more complicated, and powerful, than we could ever imagine. Library Journal says “the writing is superb and gripping…a moving must-have.”

    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.
