LECTURE | Anthony Mascioli Rainbow Dialogues 

This week's Anthony Mascioli Rainbow Dialogues: "A Bridge From the Past to the Present" is the first program to feature special LGBTQ collections that have been permanently transferred to the Rochester Public Library from the Out Alliance. Provided info states that the series seeks to demonstrate the relevance of LGBTQ history and archival documents in today's world, and will "reference and contextualize LGBTQ life in Rochester against the backdrop of local and national social justice issues."

The event is presented by the Out Alliance in partnership with the Rochester Public Library, the Friends and Foundation of the Rochester Public Library, and ImageOut. Drawing from documents, newspapers, videos, and ephemera, the series of six dialogues will address the topics of faith communities, marriage equality, the HIV/AIDS crisis, visibility, the experiences of trans people, and liberation movements. An Archive Information Fair from noon to 2 p.m. will be set up at the Central Library.

A ticketed evening celebration from 6 to 10 p.m. will be held at the Memorial Art Gallery (500 University Avenue) and will include performances by Thomas Warfield and Sarah Kilbourne, recognitions, and a buffet dinner ($50 per person). Franklin A. Robinson, Jr., archivist at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, will speak at both events.

The Anthony Mascioli Rainbow Dialogues: "A Bridge From the Past to the Present" will take place on Saturday, March 24 in the Kate Gleason Auditorium, Central Library, 115 South Avenue. 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Free. Register at
