An Evening with Steven Petrow

Every other Tuesday, Steven Petrow addresses questions about LGBT and straight etiquette in his "Civilities" column for The Washington Post. Join HRC and Petrow for a discussion of modern manners of interest to everyone, including an interview conducted by The Washington Post’s Jonathan Capehart and a Q&A with questions from the audience.

Said TIME magazine: "Move over, Emily Post!  When it comes to etiquette for members of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community—as well as their straight friends, family members and co-workers—Steven Petrow is the authority."

Steven Petrow is a respected journalist and the go-to source for modern manners, as cited by The New York Times, People, and NPR. Known as "Mr. Manners," his usually gentle, often humorous, but always insightful advice has made him a nationally-recognized expert.

In addition to his five etiquette books and "Civilities," he also writes "Your Digital Life" for USA Today.  Previously, he penned The New York Times's "Civil Behavior" column and "Digital Dilemmas" for Parade magazine. His most recent book, "Steven Petrow’s Complete Gay & Lesbian Manners," will be available for purchase at the event.

This is a free event.

All HRC members, supporters, friends and family are welcome.
