History Revealed: Queer Voices

August 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Ramsey County Historical Society Presents

Queer Voices Panel Discussion

History Revealed Series
August 1, 2019
Thursday, 7:00 pm
East Side Freedom Library

Free and open to all. No reservations needed.

Join RCHS for History Revealed, our program series featuring presentations and tours from the best of local historians, authors and archaeologists, with a wide range of topics drawn from the heritage and traditions of Ramsey County.

Join us at the East Side Freedom Library for a panel discussion and readings from the new publication, Queer Voices.

Since its beginnings in 1993, the Queer Voices reading series has featured both emerging and established Minnesota-based writers of the LGBTQIA+ community. With a track record of more than twenty years, the series has become a national model and one of Minnesota’s most important literary institutions. It is reputed to be the longest-running curated queer reading series in the country.

In this volume, series curators John Medeiros and Andrea Jenkins and facilitator Lisa Marie Brimmer present the finest poetry, fiction, and nonfiction pieces by the presenters. Their work, generated and performed in a powerful space of understanding, explores the material of life without internal or external censorship. Living, loving, working, learning, playing, reflecting, knowing, inventing, and being—these magnificent queer voices affirm the importance of civil literacy and the power of vulnerability.

The following contributors will be part of the panel, other editors and contributors will be joining us:
Stephanie Chrismon
Christina Glendenning
Bronson Lemer
Nasreen Mohamed
Michael Kiesow Moore
William Reichard
Morgan Grayce Willow

Books will be available for purchase.
