LBGTQ+ MEET-UP: Comics & More!

*Allies & Mature Teens Welcome*

Fourth Saturdays from 4p-6p

 

Join us in sharing and learning about comics & pop-culture,
with a focus on
gay and transgender communities.

We are a place for people to speak freely and without judgment, in
an environment that fosters understanding and education.
Good intentions are always assumed, and empathetic
understanding is readily offered.
We will likely discuss some topics that may be uncomfortable, so it’s important
to remember that everyone has different experiences and opinions. We encourage
everyone to be mindful of themselves, for their own well-being and for others’.

ALL WELCOME, JUST BE NICE!!

 

Next Meet-Ups: March 25th, April 29th, May 27th

 

Fun Home by Alison Bechdel

Alison Bechdel charts her fraught relationship with her late father. Distant and exacting, Bruce Bechdel was an English teacher and director of the town funeral home, which Alison and her family referred to as the “Fun Home.”


It was not until college that Alison, who had recently come out as a lesbian, discovered that her father was also gay. A few weeks after this revelation, he was dead, leaving a legacy of mystery for his daughter to resolve.


In her hands, personal history becomes a work of amazing subtlety and power, written with controlled force and enlivened with humor, rich literary allusion, and heartbreaking detail.
