Out at Chicago History Museum: Out of This World

Journey with us beyond the binary and heteronormative! Join us as Kim Hunt, executive director of Pride Action Tank, moderates a discussion about the vibrant history of LGBTQIA themes in speculative fiction (science fiction, comics, and fantasy). Take a closer look at how the genre gives authors and readers the freedom to imagine societies, releasing them from reality and forcing the reader to reconsider his or her heteronormative cultural assumptions. Panelists include:

-Coya Paz, associate professor at DePaul University and artistic director of Free Street Theater
-Derek Lee McPhatter, writer and producer
-Ricardo Gamboa, artist, activist, and academic
-Cesar Torres, journalist, author, and filmmaker

6:30 P.M. program, reception to follow. $20, $15 members and students. Tickets here.
