Using resources available through the library and the Internet, Salem Public Library invites the community to explore queer political and social history, identities, and the role of allies in supporting the LGBTQIA+ community.

Each of the three discussions will have its own focus: Session 1: Today & Yesterday (January 26); Session 2: Understanding LGBTQIA+ (February 23); Session 3: Effective Allyship (March 23) We ask that you prepare for these discussions by reading or watching at least one entry from the suggested resources list for each month.
