A Positive View of LGBTQ - Book Signing

Date: 
Wednesday, February 22, 2012 - 6:30pm to 8:00pm
Location: 
Morris Book Shop - 882 E. High Street, Lexington, KY

 

Ellen Riggle and Sharon Rostosky, professors at the University of Kentucky, have recently published a book that focuses on the positive themes in LGBTQ lives. The book, A Positive View of LGBTQ: Embracing Identity and Cultivating Well-Being, includes stories that people shared when asked the simple but novel question, “What is positive about having a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer identity?” The answers focus on themes such as personal authenticity and insights, having stronger relationships with family and friends, flexibility in gender expression and roles, increased compassion for others, fighting for social justice, and a sense of community belonging.  The book includes exercises to inspire readers to cultivate their own positive narratives and strengths.

The book signing will be held on Wednesday, February 22 from 6:30p.m. to 8:00p.m. at the Morris Book Shop, located at 882 East High Street, Lexington.
