Kathleen Archambeau is the award-winning author of Pride & Joy: LGBTQ Artists, Icons and Everyday Heroes, with stories of luminaries, from Tony Kushner to Emma Donoghue, from Bill T. Jones to Colm Toibin, with a Foreword by Academy Award-winning screenwriter, Dustin Lance Black (MILK). The book promises LGBTQ citizens of the world a bright and fulfilling future.

The Gay and Lesbian Review (Nov. - Dec. 2017) has said, "Kathleen Archambeau's study profiles thirty individuals who represent the full spectrum of the LGBT rainbow. Each subject comes across as a complex person and not just a checked box...This book would be especially appropriate for teenage readers in search of gay role models." The book has been nominated for a Lambda Literary Award and a Publishing Triangle Award.

Kathleen will be at the Diversity Center to do a short reading, show videos from her website, and conduct interactive mini-discussions on the topics that arise from the videos.
