Writers LIVE: Joe Wenke, The Human Agenda: Conversations About Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity

In celebration of Baltimore Pride 2015, the Pratt Library presents a conversation with Joe Wenke, author of The Human Agenda: Conversations About Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity; Gisele Alicea (aka Gisele Xtravaganza), fashion model; and Y-Love, hip-hop artist.

Despite the progress in the movement toward marriage equality, the LGBT community continues to face difficult, and often heartbreaking, odds. With The Human Agenda, Joe Wenke got people to talk with, not at, each other about a whole range of issues -- growing up, coming out, finding one's identity, family, marriage, parenting, careers and much more.

Joe Wenke is a writer, social critic and LGBT rights activist. He is the founder and publisher of Trans Uber, a publishing company with a focus on promoting LGBT rights, free thought and equality for all people.

Writers LIVE programs are supported in part by a generous grant from PNC Bank.

Presented in partnership with GLCCB (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender Community Center of Baltimore and Central Maryland) (www.glccb.org) and the Maryland Commisson on Civil Rights (www.mccr.maryland.gov).
