Join us for a discussion on the intersection of LGBTQ identity and creativity. Hugh Ryan, curator of the exhibition On the (Queer) Waterfront, and author of the new book When Brooklyn Was Queer, is joined by historian and CUNY professor, Daniel Hurewitz, author of Bohemian Los Angeles whose work focuses on the development of gendered and sexual identities, and Sherill Tippins, author of the book February House about the salon/house described by the queer platform, them, as “the Queer Commune in WWII Brooklyn that became a cultural epicenter.” Moderated by the senior managing producer of the Slate Podcast Network, June Thomas, founder of Outward, Slate’s LGBTQ section. How artists helped to inspire queer activism is just one of the many topics that will be explored!
Presented in connection with the new exhibition “On the (Queer) Waterfront.”
