Well-known author, playwright, photographer, and community activist Callen Harty will be doing a talk on his recently released book, My Queer Life, at the Sun Prairie United Methodist Church on Sunday, May 4 from 5:00 to 7:00pm. Admission is free, and copies of the book will be available for sale.
My Queer Life presents a “greatest hits collection” from one of the area’s most interesting writers. The book moves through Harty’s first tentative steps at coming out to speaking before 1,000 people at a gay rights rally to his reflections on same-sex marriage and other important topics of the day. The book is a literary collection of various essays, poems, pieces of plays, speeches, and more that Harty has written over the last 30-plus years around the topic of living an authentic life as a queer man in a straight society.
Harty is the author of more than a thousand poems, dozens of published articles and essays, two dozen produced plays and 50 monologues, and more.
This event is presented by the Reconciling Ministries Committee of the Sun Prairie United Methodist Church. On June 27, 2013, the church voted to publicly open its doors to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community as a Reconciling Congregation.
