queer history lineup

Four New Yorkers bring queer and trans history alive by reading from primary source documents, and discussing what they love about ‘em. Spanning social, legal, literary, and art history, the readers draw on everything from court decisions to personal correspondence.

Come enjoy some soda, wine, beer, and cheese, and get your historical groove on.

Suggested donation of $5 to support Sylvia’s Place emergency shelter for LGBTQ youth. No one turned away.

Justin Kim is a painter who has exhibited primarily across the Northeast, and has taught at Yale, Dartmouth, Smith, and Deep Springs. See his work at justinkim71.blogspot.com.

Noah Lewis is a trans rights attorney who once played poker with Justice Elena Kagan while in law school.

Jerome Murphy is a writer with an MFA from New York University, where he is now Program Administrator of The Creative Writing Program.

Joey Plaster is an independent public historian, radio producer, and journalist. He won the 2010 Allan Bérubé Prize, and is in the American Studies Ph.D. program at Yale.

 

Hosted by Paul VanDeCarr, a random guy who likes to do these sorts of things.
