We were honored to host three guest panelists from the Gay Alliance’s LGTBQ Academy and moderator Jeanne Gainsburg at our October Commons Speaker Series presentation. The evening was designed to better familiarize audience members with transgender identities and to offer a comfortable space to ask questions and learn about respectful communication. Jason, Dwain, and Olivia each openly shared their own journeys and stories as they related to their own understanding of gender identity and growing sense of self. The audience eagerly asked questions and responded with great warmth as the panelists offered insights and advice with humor and honesty. For those of you who missed the evening, you are invited to attend the Parent Council coffee on the morning of November 10th in the Dining Hall when Jeanne Gainsburg will be back on campus discussing gender again.
