James Lecesne, founder of The Trevor Project and author of Trevor: A Novella, will be hosting Queer in America at 92nd Street Y, a night dedicated to how writers are trying to make a better life for LGBT youth. The event happens tonight at 8.15 pm.
Queer in America brings together some of the best voices in writing, including Laurie Rubin (Do You Dream in Color?, Seven Stories Press), Amy Bloom (Come to Me, HarperCollins), Michael Cunningham (The Hours, Picador),Paul Rudnick (I Hate Hamlet), and Brian Selznick (The Invention of Hugo Cabret, Scholastic Press), to discuss how they are working towards a better and more accepting place for LGBT youth. After a screening of Lecesne’s award-winning documentary Trevor, the authors will be reading their own letters from The Letter Q: Queer Writers’ Notes to Their Young Selves.
