Because you know you've been meaning to check out the Lesbian Herstory Archives for as long as you've been in New York, but you still haven't...

The Archives used to hold public events more frequently, but they almost never do anymore. There's a book reading this weekend, though, and you should all come. One of the authors, Pat Gozemba, was my mentor when I was volunteering at the (lgbt) history project in Boston. She's awesome. Plus, hanging out with me is always a good time.

JOIN US ON SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 2 -4 PM for AT HOME WITH THE ARCHIVES
Pat Gozemba and Karen Kahn will present an imovie of over 100 of Marilyn Humphries' photos from their new book: Courting Equality: A Documentary History of America's First Legal Same-Sex Marriages
Pat and Karen will also read from and sign copies of the book.

This book captures the early efforts by activists to secure family and parenting rights, the 2003 celebrations and protests that followed the Massachusetts Supreme Court’s decision in Goodridge vs. the Department of Public Health, and the happiness of families who have benefited from the legalization of same-sex marriages. Readers are taken behind the scenes- and front and center-- in the legislature and in LGBT-headed homes.
