The Children of Harvey Milk: How LBGBTQ Politicians Changed the World
November 7, 2018 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Forty years ago, on November 27, 1978, Harvey Milk’s iconic journey was ended by an assassin’s bullet. The generation of out LGBTQ leaders he inspired went on to transform the world we live in. UNC-Chapel Hill Professor of Political Science Andrew Reynolds has documented this history through the epic stories of courageous men and women around the world who came forward to make their voices heard during the struggle for equal rights. Please join us for a special event launching Reynolds’ new book, The Children of Harvey Milk: How LGBTQ Politicians Changed the World. Introduced by Niko Pfund, President of Oxford University Press (USA), Professor Reynolds will offer a short lecture on the visibility of LGBTQ politicians, and then journalist Steven Petrow will moderate a half-hour roundtable with LGBTQ elected officials from across North Carolina. After the hour-long event, we invite you to stay for a celebratory wine and cheese reception with the author and panelists. This event is free and open to the public.
