Oct 30: “You Can Tell Just By Looking” and 20 Other Myths About LGBT Life and People



“You Can Tell Just By Looking” and 20 Other Myths About LGBT Life and People

a book salon with Ann Pellegrini & Michael Amico

Wednesday, October 30
6 to 7:30 pm

Ann Pellegrini, Performance Studies and Religious Studies, New York University

Michael Amico, Doctoral Candidate ABD, American Studies, Yale University

“You Can Tell Just By Looking” and 20 Other Myths About LGBT Life and People takes aim at some of the most persistent and pernicious myths about lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people, culture, and life in the United States. Some of these myths — such as the notion that “all religions condemn homosexuality” or that “transgender people are mentally ill” — have been used to justify discrimination and even violence against LGBT people. But others — such as the claim that “homosexuals are born that way” or that “hate crime laws prevent violence against LGBT people” — are embraced and circulated by many LGBT communities and their allies. At this book salon, Ann Pellegrini and Michael Amico, two of the authors of this just-published book, discuss the ongoing force of these myths and the contemporary challenges of developing a more nuanced — and messy — understanding of sexual identities and sexual politics, in the plural.
