Title of Presentation: Holding History’s Rainbow Pen: LGBT as Humanism’s Next Civil Rights Chapter
Date & Time: Friday, May 31 9:00 am
Presentation Summary: Humanism happens when we look at history and realize that we have been its author, and look to the future realizing that we hold the pen. Humanists sparked the abolition and suffragette movements; the next chapter in the course of fighting oppression and championing the rights of all people is sexual and gender orientation. Join Jason Frye as he examines the Humanist role in abolition and women’s suffrage, its parallels to the LGBT movement, and where we go from here.
Biography: Jason Frye is a Humanist Activist, Coordinator for the LGBT Humanist Council, Humanist Celebrant, Member of the Humanist Institute Class 19 and President of the Humanist Association of San Diego.
