    Reel Queer Film Series presents Wild Nights with Emily

     

    The Reel Queer Film Series at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center presents a free screening of Wild Nights with Emily (PG13) on October 10th at 6:30pm. A talkback with Liz Bradbury and dessert reception will follow. 

    In the mid-19th century, Emily Dickinson is writing prolifically, baking gingerbread, and enjoying a passionate, lifelong romantic relationship with another woman, her friend and sister-in-law Susan...yes this is the iconic American poet, popularly thought to have been a recluse. Beloved comic Molly Shannon leads in this humorous yet bold reappraisal of Dickinson, informed by her private letters.
    While seeking publication of some of the 1,775 poems written during her lifetime, Emily (Shannon) finds herself facing a troupe of male literary gatekeepers too confused by her genius to take her work seriously. Instead her work attracts the attention of an ambitious woman editor, who also sees Emily as a convenient cover for her own role in buttoned-up Amherst's most bizarre love triangle. A timely critique of how women's history is rewritten, WILD NIGHTS WITH EMILY remains vibrant, irreverent and tender--a perhaps closer depiction of Emily Dickinson's real life than anything seen before.

    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.

    Author Talk: Friends of Dorothy

    The Library at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center present a book talk with Dee Michel, author of Friends of Dorothy: Why Gay Boys and Gay Men Love the Wizard of Oz on October 24th, 2019 at 6pm. A book signing and dessert reception will follow.

    About the Book: No it's not just Judy! Gay men love not only the MGM film but other stories set in Oz—the original books, more recent books with Oz themes and settings, and stage and screen productions like The Wiz. In Friends of Dorothy, based on interviews with more than one hundred gay Oz fans, Dee Michel explains the enduring appeal of Oz for gay men and boys. Interviewees include Gregory Maguire (Wicked), Robert Sabuda (the pop-up Wizard of Oz), and William Mann (Kate: The Woman Who Was Hepburn). The book also tackles the long-taboo topic of gay boys, examining their feelings about escaping to Oz, the characters they identify with, and the psychological and spiritual uses they make of stories set in Oz. The many voices in Friends of Dorothy, along with extensive research and analysis, provide a richly layered look at the allure of Oz, with insights into gay culture, gay psychology, and gay folklore.

    About the Author: Dee Michel is a lifelong Wizard of Oz fan (both the Oz books and the MGM film) and a longtime member of the International Wizard of Oz Club. Dee has a PhD in library and information science, and was the first male co-chair of the Gay Task Force of American Library Association and has worked on LGBT terminology for search and retrieval in information systems. He was also a volunteer at Boston’s Gay Community News, a member of the Boston Gay Pride Committee, and helped organize the 1979 March on Washington for Gay and Lesbian Rights. He lives in Northampton, Massachusetts.

    Books will be for sale at the event through independent book seller, Let's Play Books. Pre-order your copy here.

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