Topic For Friday, February 6th, 2015:
James Baldwin and Bayard Rustin: Standing At The Intersection of
Black and SGL/LGBTQ Rights - A Celebration

James Baldwin and Bayard Rustin were among our most intrepid freedom fighters who pressed for our rights as Black men, and as Black men who love men. Both were artists and activists.

In the spirit of liberation and in celebration of the tradition of struggle left us by these geniuses, join The Gatekeeper’s Collective on Friday, February 6th @ 8:00 PM  for James Baldwin and Bayard Rustin: Standing at The intersection of Black and SGL/LGBTQ Rights - A Celebration

Including a screening of the short film, "Bayard Rustin and James Baldwin: Freedom Fighters and Friends", and community sharing of spoken word, song and other creative expression as we celebrate these men’s legacies and take up a discussion considering:

- Where the Gay and Lesbian Liberation Movement has evolved into Marriage Equality, the latest iteration of the Movement for Black Liberation would seem to be Black Lives Matter.  

- Are we stakeholders in either of these struggles?  In both?  If so, how?  If not, why not?


AND

Joining us will be Tenth Zine, the dazzling new SGL magazine founders…
