Official news outlet for the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Round Table of ALA
My name is Kara, Founder of Hole 19 Bar in Los Angeles. We are set to become LA’s first real miniature golf bar when our doors open on March 15th for 8 weeks as a pop-up. We are 100% funded through Kickstarter by a mostly LGBTQ+ and vegan community across the world!
We are advocating for LGBTQ+ rights through our merchandise and will be running weekly LGBTQ+ events for the founders who donated and local LGBTQ+ persons. We will also be hosting vegan vendors outside our doors. I thought you (and your readers) might be interested in our story and sharing how people can enjoy the pop-up once it opens.
I have a Dropbox press kit attached here: https://bit.ly/2FlpSTj with our logo, sketches of the venue, vendor food shots, founder biography, key facts/dates and an outline of the project. We also have Instagram if you wish to share the news there: @hole19bar. My personal Instagram is @godd8rs.
Please let me know if you are interested – I am keen to do interviews or provide any further information where possible.
Thank you in advance, it means the world to us! Have a great weekend!
Thanks, Kara! We’ll be in touch via e-mail soon. This is exciting!
I was recently copy cataloging a YA book, Coping with Gender Dysphoria (ISBN: 978-1-50817-391-5). I noticed that it was assigned the LC subject term “Gender Identity Disorders.” I was surprised by this, since it has been almost 7 years since the DSM replaced the term Gender Identity Disorder with Gender Dysphoria.
I am not sure how one goes about asking LC to update their subject headings, but I thought this was an important issue to bring to your attention — in hopes that, if the conversation is not already started, that someone from this Round Table could contact LC to work on updating this subject heading.
