The Library at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center invites the community to participate in the January discussion of the center's Queer Memoir Reading Group, featuring An Indefinite Sentence: A Personal History of Outlawed Love and Sex by Siddharth Dube, A Lambda Literary finalist. A revelatory memoir about sex, oppression, and the universal struggle for justice, An Indefinite Sentence is both a personal and political journey, weaving Dube's own quest for love and self-respect with unforgettable portrayals of the struggles of some of the world's most oppressed people, those reviled and cast out for their sexuality. Informed by a lifetime of scholarship and introspection, it is essential reading on the global debates over sexuality, gender expression, and of securing human rights and social justice in a world distorted by inequality and right-wing ascendancy.
