Queer Community Gathering
Jul

Queer Community Gathering

The first Princeton Pride Parade was a phenomenal gathering. What an amazing & energizing day!  As all of us at the Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice were organizing this event, we often heard Princeton residents & others in the area state that they would love to see a group come together as a dedicated community sharing  support for fellow LGBTQIA folks, as well as for socializing, strategizing for action, & so much more.

We hope now to move forward from our grand event to create such a collective. Carol Watchler, not only our Center’s Community Outreach Coordinator but our resident lesbian feminist activist, is all at once excited & inspired to help be a conduit for this to happen. As Carol espouses, “! have always found it to be a great source of solace & strength to engage with like-minded individuals who identify similarly as myself & wish to share this journey.” 

Together, we can gather a group of caring folks – to tell our stories, hold dances, movie nights, potlucks, developing LGBTQ+ special interest groups as offshoots of the larger group – whatever the community may want or need. We’re reaching out to a core group of people who love organizing, who have made their voices heard, or simply individuals who have inspired us during our time here, to start this important & necessary journey in and for our community & to get our thoughts together to envision a powerful kick-off for this idea while the energy & enthusiasm is running high.

Please join us at BRCSJ HQ as we proudly host Martha Shelley & Perry Brass, two original members of the Gay Liberation Front whose activism stems from the early days of Stonewall, in intimate conversation with Frank Mahood, one of the founders of Gay People Princeton, this community’s first local gay rights organization, moderated by our own Chief Activist Robt Seda-Schreiber.

Continuing the thread from our Pride Parade- Princeton's Fabulous First Ever!

This event continues the Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice's dedication to recognizing, respecting, & preserving our history to inform our present & inspire our future!

Martha Shelley organized the first gay protest march that took place one month after Stonewall, & was one of the founders of the Gay Liberation Front. She worked on & wrote for GLF’s newspaper, Come Out!, & RAT Newspaper after the women’s takeover, as well as producing the first lesbian radio show in NYC, Lesbian Nation. After leaving New York, she joined the Women's Press Collective in Oakland, CA. She is the author of three poetry collections & a trilogy of historical fiction about the life of Jezebel, Queen of Israel.

Activist, poet, playwright, & author Perry Brass has published 19 books, was a member of the Gay Liberation Front & co-editor of Come Out!, the world’s first gay liberation newspaper; & co-founded the Gay Men’s Health Project Clinic, the first clinic for gay men on the East Coast, now operating as Callen-Lorde Community Health Services. He is also a co-founder of the New York Rainbow Book Fair, the largest LGBT book event in the U.S, which will take place this year on October 12 at the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, & Transgender Community Services Center in Greenwich Village.

Frank Mahood began his 50 year career as an artist, typographer, & book designer at several publishers across the country before joining Princeton University Press. Many of his book designs have won awards at regional & national book shows. He was one of the original members of the Gay Alliance of Princeton, representing the university staff in the student organization. As a member, he was one of five local delegates to the First International Gay Rights Conference in Edinburgh Scotland in 1974. He was a founding member of Gay People Princeton, serving on its executive board & as its first vice-president. His graphic designs were used by GAP, GPP, & the New Jersey Lesbian & Gay Coalition.

Affirming Space for Our LGBTQIA Communities Conversation

  • Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

It has been far too long that many in our LGBTQIA communities have been reluctant, even scared, to enter various houses of worship & rightfully so. The work that many Affirming spaces of various faiths are doing shows how far we have come but we can all agree there is still much of a journey ahead of us.
In that respect, we would like to invite all to share in a dedicated conversation about the work many good folks are doing in this respect, how we might inspire others to follow in their footsteps in their own houses & places, & as well let our friends, allies, & families know that there are indeed safe & welcoming spaces of faith that will not only accept them but embrace them.
Please join Alexis Fuller-Wright of Christ Congregation Princeton, Rabbi Ira Dounn of the Center for Jewish Life - Hillel at Princeton University, & Aruna Rao of Desi Rainbow Parents & Allies at our Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice HQ for an enlightening, empowering, & indeed inspiring moment allowing us all to move forward together!
