Event Details:

Los Angeles LGBT Center and Book Soup presents Michelangelo Signorile in conversation with Alan Acosta, Director of Strategic Initiatives Los Angeles LGBT Center, about Signorile’s latest book, It's Not Over: Getting Beyond Tolerance, Defeating Homophobia, and Winning True Equality

From the author of the groundbreaking bestseller "Queer in America," a myth-shattering look at the present and future of gay rights 
Marriage equality has surged across the country. Closet doors have burst open in business, entertainment, and even major league sports. But as longtime advocate Michelangelo Signorile argues in his most provocative book yet, the excitement of such breathless change makes this moment more dangerous than ever. Puncturing the illusion that victory is now inevitable, Signorile marshals stinging evidence that an age-old hatred, homophobia, is still a basic fact of American life. He exposes the bigotry of the brewing religious conservative backlash against LGBT rights and challenges the complacency and hypocrisy of supposed allies in Washington, the media, and Hollywood. 
Not just a wake-up call, "It's Not Over" is also a battle plan for the fights to come in the march toward equality. Signorile tells the stories of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans who have refused to be merely tolerated, or worse, and are demanding full acceptance. And he documents signs of hope in schools and communities finding new ways to combat ignorance, bullying, and fear. Urgent and empowering, "It's Not Over" is a necessary book from one of our most electrifying voices.
This event is presented by the Los Angeles LGBT Center and Book Soup and will take place at the Renberg Theatre located at 1125 North McCadden Place, Los Angeles. For more information on attending this event please visit LearningCurveLA.org
