From Pioneer to Elder: One Arlington Woman’s Journey from the Birth of Boston’s Gay Liberation to LGBTQ Elder Activism Today
June 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Come hear local author Sue Katz speak on what it was like being queer in the Boston area during her lifetime & how things have evolved and changed. Sue Katz’s business card identifies her as a “Wordsmith & Rebel.” She is an author, an activist, and an Arlingtonian. As a pioneer in Boston’s women’s liberation and LGBTQ movements, she’s got some wild stories to tell. Her most recent work includes writing and speaking about the particular needs of LGBTQ elders – the generations born into a life of closets and discrimination. Her books Lillian’s Last Affair and Lillian in Love explore these issues. Sue Katz’s fiction and journalism have been published on the three continents where she has lived and worked.
