COUNTY NEWS RELEASE
The staff of Los Alamos County Library System is pleased to present LGBTQIA+ 101: Understanding and Allyship in 2022. This free public program will be livestreamed on Zoom on Thursday, June 30 from 7 to 8 pm. Don’t miss this great opportunity to expand your understanding of all things rainbow!
Has the LGBT acronym grown since you last looked at it? Are you curious about why we celebrate Pride Month in June or what all those colorful flags represent? Trying to figure out pronouns, gender, and slang? Oh, my! This talk is for those who feel out of the loop with all things rainbow (or are seeking a more in-depth understanding) and are hoping to catch up or cry trying. We will cover some basic history of the LGBT movement, including the Stonewall Riots and more.
This program will be presented by library staff member Maegan Carter, a lifelong New Mexico native from Española who completed undergraduate studies in psychology and anthropology at the University of New Mexico. She is currently pursuing a master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling at Highlands University and sex therapy certification from the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists.
This event is free to the public and will take place online via the Zoom platform. Registration is required to attend. To sign up, please visit the event page on the library event calendar at https://laconm.libcal.com/event/9235305. Questions? Please call (505) 662-8257.
