Black Gay and Lesbian Archive At The Schomburg

I already have a prior engagement, but would mos def attend this if I could (pardon such a late notice):

Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture Programs Calendar

The first of two programs co-sponsored by the Schomburg Center's Black Gay and Lesbian Archive will focus on political activity within the black same gender loving community over the past 30 years. Currently, politically active LGBT/SGL activists of African descent are a mix of seasoned and new thinkers, engaging a range of issues including marriage equality, homophobia in the black church, and hate crimes, among other issues. Panelists include Samiya Bashir (The Right to Marry Campaign), Larry D. Lyons, II (Rashawn Brazell Memorial Fund), Kevin McGruder (Gay Men of African Descent), and others. For more information on LGBT programs throughout the month of June see the Art & Activism website.

This free event will begin at 6:00pm tomorrow night. More info--

Langston Hughes Auditorium, Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, 515 Malcolm X Boulevard, (Enter at 103 West 135th Street), New York, NY 10037-1801. (directions)
