all this week!!!

IS ANYONE OUT THERE? is a week of Columbia College Library programming kicking off LGBTQ History month in October and exploring the role libraries can play as a point of resource-sharing, community connection, and creative genesis.

{Monday – 9/28}
What I Didn’t Know About Coming Out Discussion (3rd Floor North)

Columbia and Chicago community students will share and discuss the resources and media (books, journals, websites, film, music)  they find/found helpful in navigating the coming out experience. The program also explores the role that libraries play in connecting the community, not only through information and resource sharing, but as a venue for storytelling, narrative, and personal growth.  Selected supporting materials from the collection will be made available for browsing and check out.

{Tuesday – 9/29}
LGBT History Discussion / Lecture (Classroom)

Columbia College Faculty and/or Staff will lead a discussion about the history, terminology, and evolution of gay culture, supported by materials from the library’s extensive collection of LGBTQ resources.

{Wednesday – 9/30}
Is Anyone Out There?  An Evening of Voices  (5th Floor North)

Join us for an evening of readings and discussion with Chicago-area and Columbia College community LGBTQ authors,  as well as an open-mic session to share your own work or that of your favorite LGBTQ authors.
