Tomorrow, Saturday February 16th at 7 pm AFFA will co-host a special guest with Charleston’s Unitarian Church Welcoming Congregations Committee: Kevin Jennings, the founder and director of GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network), and author of Mama’s Boy, Preacher’s Son: A Memoir of Growing Up, Coming Out and Changing America’s Schools.
Kevin has spent much of his adult life fighting for LGBT school age youth-and LGBT teachers. As he writes in his book, “I loved learning. School, on the other hand, was a problem.” With the heart of an activist, Kevin set out to change the world. GLSEN has done that for thousands of LGBT kids across the country.
Meet Kevin and hear excerpts from his book at the Spoleto Center, 14 George Street in Charleston.
