Pride & (no) Prejudice: LGBTQIA+ Book Club

January 30 @ 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Join us on a new night!

Our book club has now moved to the last Tuesday of each month. All are welcome! Books are available to borrow and can be found at our 3rd floor desk.

In January, we’ll be discussing No Way, They Were Gay? by Lee Wind



“History” sounds really official. Like it’s all fact. Like it’s definitely what happened.

But that’s not necessarily true. History was crafted by the people who recorded it. And sometimes, those historians were biased against, didn’t see, or couldn’t even imagine anyone different from themselves.

That means that history has often left out the stories of LGBTQIA+ people: men who loved men, women who loved women, people who loved without regard to gender, and people who lived outside gender boundaries. Historians have even censored the lives and loves of some of the world’s most famous people, from William Shakespeare and Pharaoh Hatshepsut to Cary Grant and Eleanor Roosevelt.

Join author Lee Wind for this fascinating journey through primary sources―poetry, memoir, news clippings, and images of ancient artwork―to explore the hidden (and often surprising) Queer lives and loves of two dozen historical figures.
