"The New Gay Teenager" at Borders

Hello Everyone ~

My name is Denise. I moderate the "Rochester_Pride" LJ

http://www.livejournal.com/community/rochester_pride/

This an e-mail from Todd Plank at the GAGV about an event coming up at Border's Books & Music located at the Henrietta Border's on thursday, June 16th @ 7:00pm.

If you want to come and need directions, please ask me, that Border's is my "home away from home" :)




Greetings All,

I'm passing along news of an upcoming event at Borders: Ritch C.
Savin-Williams, Professor of Clinical and Developmental Psychology at
Cornell University and author of "Mom, Dad. I'm Gay.": How Families
Negotiate Coming Out, will be talking about his newly released book:
The
New Gy Teenager, at Borders (Henrietta) on June 16th at 7:00 PM. Save
the date and please pass this notice on to anyone whom you believe
would
be interested in attending, with a special concentration on reaching
"professionals" who work with youth (clergy, educators, social
workers,etc.)

I'm providing a copy of the review by Meredith Small, Professor of
Anthropology, Cornell University:

"Adolescence is no picnic-but is it especially hard for gay teens?
Ritch
Savin-Williams' groundbreaking book reveals that being young and
homosexual is not the identity crisis we might expect. Today's
teenagers
are more at ease with homosexuality-and with a more flexible and
shifting view of human sexuality in general-than their parents' and
grandparents' generation. With a conversational style, personal
history,
and intimate interviews with teens, Savin-Williams transforms research
into a great read. At a time when adults argue passionately over who
has
the right to do what with whom, kids must be laughing behind their
backs."

Questions about the upcoming event can be directed to Kathy Kurz
(292-5900) at the Borders in Henrietta. hope to see you there.

P.S. Tickets for the Gay Alliance's largest annual fundraiser, the
Pride
Picnic (July 10th), are now on sale! Help spread the word.
