Out at CHM
Discover the storied history of Chicago’s gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender communities as the Museum’s celebrated series continues its eleventh season.
Lesbianography: Lesbians and Sex
Thursday, May 8, 5:30 p.m. cocktail reception and music by DJ Lady D, 6:30 p.m. program
The year 2014 marks twenty years since the debut of the Chicago-set film Go Fish—a perfect excuse to disrupt the boundaries between lesbian identity, fantasy, and sexuality. Gender borders? Check. Forbidden fantasy? Check. Navigating sexual communities? Check. Intersections of race, power, and queer desire? On the agenda.
Scholars Juana María Rodríguez of UC Berkeley and LaMonda Horton-Stallings of IU Bloomington lead an evening of provocative conversation, performance, and plenty of audience Q&A. Not to be missed!
Cost: $20, $15 members and students
Out at CHM is supported by gifts from Robert Kohl and Clark Pellett, from Dr. Raymond Crossman, and with additional support from Lakeshore Beverage.
