Real Queer America: Dr. Samantha Allen in Conversation
October 1, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join us on Tuesday, October 1 in Athens for a presentation and discussion with GLAAD Award-winning LGBTQ journalist and author of ‘Real Queer America: LGBT Stories from Red States’, Dr. Samantha Allen.
Real Queer America follows Dr. Allen’s 2017 road trip across conservative states with one rule: do one queer thing a day. From Utah to Indiana and Texas to Georgia, Dr. Allen’s book speaks to rural queer people across the country and provides many parallels between Athens and other American towns.
Copies of Real Queer America will be available for sale by The Little Professor Book Center, both in their shop on Court Street and directly before the event at the Athena Cinema
This event is provided free of charge thanks to the generosity of the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism, Honors Tutorial College, and Margaret Boyd Scholars Program at Ohio University, along with Equality Ohio.
**Dr. Allen will be available after the event for book signing**
