Lecture: The Voices of Bisexual Men

Thursday, September 18, 2014
12:00pm – 1:30pm

Storrs Campus
Rainbow Center @ Student Union 403

The Rainbow Center's Out to Lunch Lecture Series continues the semester with a presentation by Robyn Ochs and Dr. Herukhuti, entitled, "The Voices of Bisexual Men."

The authors will share their collection of short fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, personal narratives, critical essays and visual art produced by cisgender and transgender bisexual, pansexual, polysexual and fluid men from the United States, Canada, Chile, India, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Sixty-one contributors--ranging in age from 20 to 77 years old--cover the themes: identity; challenging labels; liminality; institutions; angst, anger and critique; bodies and embodiment; religion and spirituality; traveling and relationships. This compelling anthology--which also includes a resource section--is a significant contribution to literature available about and by bisexual men and expands our understanding of how bisexuality is lived by men across race, class, gender, age and nationality.

Robyn Ochs is an educator and activist who makes her living as a speaker, working to increase awareness and understanding of complex identities and mobilizing people to be powerful allies to one another within and across identities and social movements.

Dr. Herukhuti (H. Sharif Williams, PhD., M.Ed.) is an activist, researcher and artist and founder of the Center for Culture, Sexuality and Spirituality. As a revolutionary scholar, he promotes erotic empowerment, social justice and ecological wellness as human rights.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their lunches.

This event will be held at the Rainbow Center and is free and open to the public. The Rainbow Center is located in Room 403 of the Student Union.
