We’re very excited to announce a new series making use of materials in our library that many probably don’t even know we have! This new event series is devoted to the appreciation of LGBTQ erotica and sexuality. We approach each topic with theoretical lenses that are critical, queer, and campy. These events are strictly 18+
This installation (the inaugural one) is a discussion of gay erotic magazines from the 1960s to the 1990s. We’ll discuss their cultural importance and meaning. Dr. Tristan Josephson, Women’s Studies professor at Sacramento State, will be present to give scholarly analysis.
LLACE Creates is an art series that showcases local queer and trans artists. The July show was a great success. Thirteen artists were showcased, including works of a variety of mediums: paintings, drawings, collages, crafts, performances, poetry, sculptures, and more! And 80 people came through to view and interact with the works and the artists!
The August show will showcase 11 artists’ work across a variety of mediums. There will be snacks, refreshments, and plenty of opportunities to connect with community members. Come on out and meet us! The event happens on Sunday, August 13 1-5PM at the Lavender Library.
