LGBTQ+ HISTORY: STONEWALL AND BEYOND Online and Galena IL

FREE
Pip Gordon FB

This talk will discuss the Stonewall Riot, which is credited as being the inspiration for Pride Month, but it will also look further back in time to other, lesser-known protests as well as forward to pivotal moments in the march of progress towards LGBTQ+ rights. The talk will primarily be focused on the roots of queer liberation to inform audiences how Pride Month got its start and how it has grown to be more inclusive. Our featured speaker is Dr. Phillip “Pip” Gordon (they/them), an associate professor of English and Gay Studies Coordinator at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. Originally from West Tennessee, Pip completed degrees at the University of Tennessee-Martin (BA, 2005) and the University of Mississippi (MA, 2008; PhD, 2013). Pip has published many articles on LGBTQ+ representation in books and other media, including the recent monograph Gay Faulkner: Uncovering a Homosexual Presence in Yoknapatawpha and Beyond (University Press of Mississippi, 2020). PLEASE NOTE: This lecture is bring presented in a hybrid format. If you choose virtual attendance when registering, you will receive a Zoom link from the Galena Public Library. This presentation will also be livestreamed to our Facebook page as well as recorded and posted to our YouTube channel.
