Kathleen Dreyer (Library)
This is the inaugural meeting of the Pride Reading Group, hosted by BMCC’s Randolph Library. The Pride Reading Group will look at a variety of texts – fiction, non-fiction, poetry, graphic/sequential art narrative, scholarly – on topics related to LGBTQIA+ identities.
Note: This meeting is open to all members of BMCC, including students, staff, and faculty, and the larger CUNY community.
This meeting is being co-hosted by the Queer Communities FIG, which encourages conversations around representation, visibility, and social action within the queer communities. While encouraging conversation specifically around curricular issues (e.g., representation, meaningful integration, and social action through curricula), the FIG will also address larger issues confronting queer communities (including scholarly communities as well as communities in which we live).
Attending to group interests, academic guest speakers will be invited to share scholarship that can support conversations around LGBT issues and themes. Members who self-identify under the queer spectrum (lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, transgender, genderqueer, etc.) and allies are welcome to join this FIG and help guide conversation.
Please email Brian Kelley for the Zoom link or if you would like to join the Reading Group but are not able to attend the first meeting.
