Queer Cliff Notes is a communal educational space held and facilitated by BIPOC LGBTQIA+ thought leaders in our Omaha community.

About this event

As a PRIDE 2021 programming initiative, The Union has invited four BIPOC LGBTQIA+ thought leaders to facilitate virtual reading circle conversations for the community to engage with literary works by queer writers. It is through these intentional spaces that healing and learning can occur simultaneously.

This 2-part session will be moderated (on Zoom) by interdisciplinary artist and 2019 Union Fellow Daphne Calhoun, discussing the text On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous by Ocean Vuong.

A limited number of copies (ten total) of the text are available for free from The Union. To reserve a copy please email mary@u-ca.org.

The first in this two-part session will be held Wednesday, June 23 , 6-7PM.

Please register to receive Zoom room link.

The Union's Pride 2021 programming has been generously supported by the Omaha Community Foundation's Equality Fund.
