    The Library at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center welcomes the community to participate in our March 2020 Community Book Discussion, featuring I'm Afraid of Men by Vivek Shraya. Toronto Star calls it “Viscerally powerful … creating tectonic fissures into antiquated beliefs around gender identity.” I'm Afraid of Men is a journey from camouflage to a riot of colour and a blueprint for how we might cherish all that makes us different and conquer all that makes us afraid..

    Community Book Discussions at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center are sponsored by Let's Play Books and by Lehigh University's Humanities Center and Southside Initiative.

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

    Reel Queer Film Series presents Lady Valor

    The Reel Queer Film Series at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center presents a free screening of Lady Valor on March 19th at 6:00pm. A talkback and dessert reception will follow. 

    This eloquent CNN documentary explores the courageous and very public transition of Kristin Beck, formerly Christopher, a decorated US Navy Seal who has challenged many peoples’ assumptions of how elite military commandos should be. We meet supportive advocates from her family and military community, as well as voices of opposition to her transition. Compelling footage of Beck’s SEAL unit training illustrates the multiple, near-suicidal operational risks Beck willingly performed when she was pre-transition and deeply unhappy.

    The film bears intimate witness to Beck’s pain in coming to terms with her identity while not only on active duty but also having a wife and two young sons—fragile relationships that remain largely uncertain.

    Lady Valor—structured as a road trip through Beck’s life as she pilots her motor home across the country—unflinchingly reveals both her indomitable spirit and her indisputable flaws. It is a journey that mirrors the lives of many people who have fought to embrace what they know to be true about themselves despite confining cultural pressures. With unflagging courage and compassion, Kristin Beck redefines social notions of heroism and devotes true service to her country in entirely new, surprising, and transcendent terms.

    This is a sober social event at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center. No alcohol will be served.

     

    The Reel Queer Film Series is supported in part by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
