On vacation, so that explains my very belated posting of the following:
Black LGBT/SGL programs at the Schomburg Center
Tuesday, June 27, 2006, 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
The second of two programs co-sponsored by the Schomburg Center's Black Gay and Lesbian Archive will focus on cultural publications produced by non-heterosexual people of African descent in the United States. It is a little known fact that the majority of black LGBT/SGL books and periodicals have been produced by small presses or self-published. This panel will discuss the complicated history of the black LGBT/SGL press, and the challenges independent and self-publishing pose historically and currently. Panelists include Lisa C. Moore (RedBone Press), Charlene Cothran (Venus Magazine), Colin Robinson (Other Countries), and others. Steven G. Fullwood, project director for the Black Gay and Lesbian Archive, will moderate the panel.
For more information on LGBT programs throughout the month of June see the Art & Activism website.
