Queer Brown Voices, a 2015 release from University of Texas Press, chronicles

perspective on the hitherto-marginalized history of their work in the last 
three decades of the twentieth century.
In this talk, co-editors of that volume, Uriel Quesada, Letitia Gomez and
Salvador Vidal-Ortiz, share with the audience the writing process behind
Queer Brown Voices and discuss the importance of personal narratives for
the Latino LGBT community.

Paddle with Professor David White through some of the most beautiful swamps and bayous just a short distance from New Orleans in southeastern Louisiana.

The late afternoon into evening and night trip offers a great twilight experience to see firsthand our cypress trees, swamp, marsh plants, and wildlife. We usually see alligators, wading birds, ducks, and spectacular scenes of Spanish-moss covered trees. With lights after dark we shine for night stalking wildlife - an adventure you shouldn't miss. 

Reservations Required! Reservations accepted between September 26 and October 26.
