UK based artist Paul Harfleet brings his international Pansy Project to Lawrence with a series of events. Harfleet plants pansies at sites of homophobic abuse, takes a photograph, names it after the abuse that occurred, and posts it to his website: thepansyproject.com.
Harfleet will premiere his short documentary "Pansies" about the Pansy Project, and give a performative reading of his children's book "Pansy Boy." The book tells the story of a boy driven to devise a plan against bullies at his school. Copies of "Pansy Boy" will be available for purchase and Harfleet will hold a book-singing.
