Robert Joseph Greene, The Gay Icon Classics of the World
Piano Lounge, Green College, UBC
February 18th 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Robert Joseph Greene embarked on a journey to find gay love stories from different cultures that were suppressed due to homophobia. Greene thought that his love stories would show the world that the LGBT Community exists in every culture. What he didn’t expect was that his simple love stories would lead to an arrest of an activist for reading “gay propaganda”in front of a children’s library.
Greene has been at the forefront of fighting Russia’s “Anti-Gay Propaganda” laws and answers questions as to why the Olympics is the perfect venue for bringing awareness to injustices from human rights to fairness in sports.
