Community Book Discussion: Butterfly Boy


The Library at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center invites the community to participate in its October 2019 Community Book Discussion featuring Butterfly Boy: Memoirs of a Chicano Mariposa by Rigoberto Gonzàlez. Out Magazine says “González’s elegant, wrenching, and poetic memoir recounts his childhood among poor Mexican farmworkers, losing his mother at twelve, whippings for youthful cross-dressing, being abandoned by his father, and coming out and finding peace with his identity amid a culture where machismo is prized.”

Free copies of the book are available for the first ten to sign up, by emailing

Community Book Discussions are sponsored by Lehigh University's Humanities Center and Southside Initiative and Let's Play Books.
