The LGBT Journey


Princeton Public Library holds a screening Tuesday, October 25 at 7 p.m. of “The Pursuit: 50 Years in the Fight for LGBT Rights.” The documentary, produced through a collaboration between WHYY and others, explores the complexities of contemporary LGBT life and provides a look at the past half-century of the fight for LGBT rights. Included are recollections of local activists from the 1960s when “gays” were “hidden in plain sight,” vulnerable to arrest, subjected to psychiatric treatment, fired from jobs, and publicly shamed. Judy Jarvis, director of Princeton University’s LGBT center, will lead a discussion following the screening in the library’s Community Room. The library is at 65 Witherspoon Street. www.princetonlibrary.org.
