TUESDAY, JUNE 11 - 6:30pm -  Author Chris Castellani, Leading Man
Go behind the scenes of Christopher Castellani's critically-acclaimed novel, Leading Men, which dramatizes the tempestuous relationship between Tennessee Williams, his longtime partner Frank Merlo, and their protégé, an aspiring Swedish actress named Anja Bloom.  It is currently being adapted to film by the producer-director team that made Call Me By Your Name.

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 12 - 6:30 pm - LGBTQ+ Inclusion 101 with Ali Kane (ALK Consulting)
Knowledge can empower individuals to make cultural change. With 1 in 5 Gen Z individuals identifying as LGBTQ+, it is imperative that the community understand the foundational principles of gender, sexuality, and allyship. This workshop encourages individuals at all levels of understanding to learn about what it means to be LGBTQ+ and how to be stronger allies so our entire community feels welcome to be their authentic selves.

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 26 - 6:30pm - 1969 Stonewall Rebellion
Join author Milo Todd on Zoom as he discusses the Stonewall Rebellion, a grassroots movement that sparked LGBTQ+ rights across the country. What happened during the multi-night rebellion around the Stonewall Inn in June of 1969? What was the first thing thrown and who threw it? Who took part and who stayed away?Hear the details of what happened and how this ultimately led to the creation of Pride Month. Note: This session includes mention of transphobia, racism, police brutality, slurs, murder, sexual assault, and misgendering /deadnaming

These programs are co-sponsored by the Sturbridge, Charlton, and Southbridge libraries.
