    Reel Queer Film Series presents Outrun

    RQFS_Outrun.png

    The Reel Queer Film Series at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center presents a free screening on Outrun on May 9th at 6:30pm. A talkback and dessert reception will follow.

    As leader of the world’s only LGBT political party, Bemz Benedito dreams of being the first transgender woman in the Philippine Congress. But in a predominantly Catholic nation, rallying for LGBT representation in the halls of Congress is not an easy feat. Bemz and her eclectic team of queer political warriors must rethink traditional campaign strategies to amass support from unlikely places. Taking their equality campaign to small-town hair salons and regional beauty pageants, the activists mobilize working-class trans hairdressers and beauty queens to join the fight against their main political opponent, a homophobic evangelical preacher, and prove to the Filipino electorate that it’s time to take the rights of LGBT people seriously. But as outsiders trying to get inside the system, will they have to compromise their political ideals in order to win? Culminating on election day, OUT RUN provides a unique look into the challenges LGBT people face as they transition into the mainstream and fight for dignity, legitimacy, and acceptance across the globe.

    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.

    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 January 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.
