Second Tuesdays presents Out In The Country by Mary Gray
Tuesday, October 13 2009 : 6:30pm at The Center

From Wal-Mart drag parties to renegade Homemaker’s Clubs, Out in the
Country offers an unprecedented contemporary account of the lives of
today’s rural queer youth. Gray maps out the experiences of young

fascinating and often surprising look at the contours of gay life
beyond the big city.
