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. In this series of community conversations, staff will act as facilitators and work to establish a respectful and supportive space for everyone to contribute their thoughts, share questions, and explore the ideas from the readings and videos. 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. Sign up and access the resource list now; you will receive the Zoom login information by email on the morning of the discussion.
