About the LGBTQIA Lecture Series
Hubbard Public Library is pleased to join with Brian P. Wells of Youngstown State University to present the LGBTQIA Lecture Series the third Thursday of every month at 6:00 pm from November through April. These programs will be presented in a safe zone atmosphere and are all inclusive. Do you have a teen that is struggling to identify? Are you struggling to identify with someone you work with? Are you feeling as though there are so many letters in LGBTQIA that alphabet soup would be easier to understand? Are you uncomfortable with a topic? Come learn more about it. This is an all ages program. Parents, bring your children; children, bring your parents. Friends bring each other. Our goal is to educate, help open communication, and create positive exchanges of dialogue for both the LGBTQIA community, allies (those who are not LGBT but offer and show support) and individuals who are of a different mindset altogether. Not sure if you should attend? Then you are exactly who this program is designed to reach. Join us!

November 19, LGBT LIT with Christopher Barzak
