LGBT Voices: Featuring Lee Lynch
Thursday, October 10 (1:30 - 2:45 pm)
Technology Center - Ellipse
Award-winning lesbian author Lee Lynch has described herself as "an English major who worked hard and got a break." Born in Manhattan in 1945, she came out as gay during her adolescence, and is one of the most influential author-activists of the LGBT civil rights movement. She received the Jim Duggins Outstanding Mid-Career Novelists' Prize, the Trailblazer Award from the Golden Crown Literary Society, and the Alice B Readers award. Her syndicated column, "The Amazon Trail," has been in publication since 1986 and is currently distributed electronically through Bold Strokes Books. Lynch was recently profiled in an article in The Advocate, titled "Prime Timers: A New Age for Activism."
Three RCC student-authors, Taylor Hartell, Joey Ross, and Hiroyuki Watanabe will participate, reading their own LGBT-themed work. The program will also include a Q&A panel discussion.
