    Where Are Queer People Welcome?

    Registration required; register online at https://multcolib.org/events/where-are-queer-people-welcome/80127


    A majority of Americans now accept gay and lesbian relationships, but the queer population is made up of a diversity of communities and experiences. Are all queer people accepted, tolerated, and embraced everywhere? Where are we made to feel welcome? Where do we feel unwelcome and unsafe? What does it mean to see your experience reflected in media? What does it mean when stories reflecting the queer experience are actively silenced?

    Join facilitator Jill Winsor in a discussion that explores how the complexity of the queer community intersects with the spaces and communities that surround us.

    This Conversation Project is made possible by the generous support of Oregon Humanities, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Oregon Cultural Trust, and The National Endowment for the Humanities Fund of The Library Foundation.

    Juneteenth: Words Along the Way

    On June 19, 1865, two years after the Emancipation Proclamation, Union soldiers brought Texans the news that the Civil War had ended and that the enslaved were now free. Juneteenth, the observance of that date, has become a national celebration of freedom. Join us on the North Portland lawn as we celebrate Juneteenth with words and music under the skies.
