So Famous and So Gay: The Fabulous Potency of Truman Capote and Gertrude Stein

February 20 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Award-winning author Jeff Solomon will be discussing his recently
published book So Famous and So Gay written from an appreciatigay-affirmative perspective. These two literary figures were visibly

homosexual in their work and public lives long before Stonewall in 1969.

Solomon will relate how these two expressed their homosexuality while

negotiating homophobia. How were these important figures able to

do this and have such impactful cultural prominence? What was their

fabulous potency that could not be ignored? We will examine how these

precursors to LGBT liberation can inspire current methods of being

LGBT affirmative societally and psychologically.
