TLA Reduex: Christie’s Speaker Notes
So, a couple of weeks ago I presented with Peter Coyl, the chair of the Stonewall Committee, and author David Levithan (Two Boys Kissing, Every Day) at the Texas Library Association about awesome books dealing with GLBTQI/QUILTBAG topics, issues and characters.
(for those that don’t know, QUILTBAG stands for Queer/Questioning, Undecided, Intersex, Lesbian, Transgender/Transsexual, Bisexual, Allied/Asexual, Gay/Genderqueer. It’s a newer term, not as widespread in it’s usage, but it’s meant to be all-inclusive of the community and easier to say and be more memorable.
At any rate, I promised people my notes (why they want them I have no clue) so here they are and downloadable on Scribd for all to enjoy.
