Richie Jackson and Queer Eye’s Antoni Porowski in Conversation: Gay Like Me

Join award-winning producer and writer Richie Jackson and Queer Eye star Antoni Porowski for an urgent conversation about Jackson’s new book, Gay Like Me: A Father Writes to His Son.

The book explores gay identity, parenting a gay son and the progress and setbacks of the LGBTQ community over the last 50 years.

In this poignant and timely conversation, Jackson will reflect on his life as a gay man and compare it to the world his 18-year-old gay son is growing up in now. Because—despite the progress made since Stonewall, the increased visibility of LGBTQ people in society, the legal right to marry, a drug to prevent HIV—bigotry is on the rise. Being gay is a gift, Jackson says, but with its gains in jeopardy, the gay community must not be complacent.

Gay Like Me is an eye-opening indictment to straight-lash in America. This intimate conversation will explore our uncertain times and most profound concerns about issues as fundamental as dignity, equality, and justice. Jackson’s book is a cultural manifesto that will stand the test of time and holds lasting insight for us all.

Tickets include a copy of Richie Jackson’s book, Gay Like Me.
