Join us on April 20 at 4 pm for a special session of Virtual Pride Club for Teens featuring musician, artist, and social commentator Michael Mwenso of the band Mwenso & The Shakes. Michael will be joining us to talk about his experiences as a Black LGBTQ+ musician.

Recently, Mwenso partnered with Sonoma State University’s Green Music Center to present his five-part online Black Music Series offering his unique and ancestral perspective on Black music as an African-born queer man growing up in London and New York.

Mwenso will be visiting us at Virtual Pride Club to have a small and personal group dialogue about music, identity, and changing the world. This particular session will be a unique opportunity to ask questions and share ideas with a world-class musician!

For ages 12-18.

To register, please visit: Michael Mwenso of the band Mwenso & The Shakes

Virtual Pride Club for Teens is a weekly club to discuss books and other media that showcase queer voices and experiences. Each month there will be a different theme. You can select books or other media that fit that theme based on recommendations by librarians or choose your own. This club is a great way to make friends, foster community building, and discover queer media all at the same time!
