Out for Lunch Presents: Samuel Delany
Thursday, November 9, 12-1pm
LGBTQ Center

The LGBTQ Center is excited to announce that we will be hosting an Out for Lunch event with Samuel Delany!

An avid and well-known LGBTQ activist, Samuel Delany is a highly-laureled writer of science fiction, in which he explores questions of sexuality, gender, race, language, perception, and the fluctuating conceptions of "the human." His prodigious literary talents are intimately informed by his experiences as a gay black man, the grandson of a freed slave, and nephew of famous civil rights workers. An acute observer of off-the-grid urban spaces, the textures of micro-neighborhoods, and queer locations, he's published some of these observations in his non-fiction book, Times Square Red/Times Square Blue.

Light refreshments will be served!

This event is part of a larger series of co-sponsored events between the LGBTQ Center, Department of Modern Culture and Media, Brown Arts Initiative Fitt Artist-in-Residence Grant Program, Malcolm S. Forbes Center for Culture and Media Studies, and Marshall Woods Lectureship Foundation of Fine Arts.
