#InTheLifeAt30: A 30th Anniversary Celebration & Commemoration of In The Life (Multiple Cities)

This fall marks the 30th anniversary of the publication of In the Life: A Black Gay Anthology, a work that still stands as a sacred movement text for the LGBT community. In our current political moment, we may still look to In The Life for joy and wisdom and affirmation. Let us remember that this work was conjured also in a time of immense state violence, crisis, and peril for our community. And yet even in those dark times, the stories, critiques, narratives, and spells inspired not only collective resilience, but collective restoration.

To observe this critical moment in LGBT history, organizers from around the country have chosen amplify the legacy of this incredible work on Wednesday, November 2, 2016. (Press Release)
