research has been conducted about the sexual lives of older adults in LGBTQ
communities, particularly the lesbian community. Dr. Fleishman, a
sexuality researcher intrigued by the intersection of sex, politics, and aging
will describe some of the key findings of her research into the sexual lives of
LGBT older adults. This presentation is a sneak preview of Fleishman’s new book,
Coming of Age at the Time of Stonewall, about ordinary people living
through extraordinary times -- LGBT elders who came of age at the time of the
Stonewall Rebellion. Two “icons” of the local lesbian community, Edie Daly and
Jackie Mirkin, also will read from their sections of the book. Discussion and time for questions and answers
will follow Dr. Fleishman’s presentation.
