Children of Harvey Milk: How LGBTQ Politicians Changed the World

January 7 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Event flyer for Outright Action International featuring Andrew Reynolds

Forty years ago Harvey Milk’s iconic journey was ended by an assassin. The generation of out LGBTQ leaders he inspired went on to transform the world we live in. UNC-Chapel Hill Professor Andrew Reynolds has documented this history through the epic stories of courageous political candidates and elected officials around the world.

Please join us for a special event on January 7th launching Reynolds’ new book, “The Children of Harvey Milk: How LGBTQ Politicians Changed the World.” Professor Reynolds will speak on the visibility of LGBTQ politicians and Monisha Harrell of Equal Rights Washington will moderate a panel discussion with LGBTQ elected officials, including State Senator Jamie Pedersen and MP Hannah Bardell (Scottish National Party). Elliott Bay Books will also be selling copies of Andy’s book at the event.

We hope you will join us to remember our history and celebrate the incredible progress we have made in the Puget Sound and around the world. Tickets are free – please register at the link above.

Event Hosts: OutRight Action International, GSBA, Equal Rights Washington, Carolina Pride Alumni Network, Elliott Bay Books
