Dear Colleagues,

As part of its twenty-fifth anniversary celebration, the Commission on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Equity (CLGBTE) will sponsor an LGBT interdisciplinary academic symposium, showcasing current LGBT research and instruction conducted at Penn State by faculty and graduate students from across the University’s twenty-four campuses. The day’s agenda, featuring a robust lineup of presentations across disciplines and campuses, will be finalized shortly. Gilles Herrada, author of The Missing Myth: A New Vision of Same-Sex Love, will deliver the keynote address.

We hope you will join us for the symposium on Friday, April 22, 2016 from 8:30 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. at the Hintz Family Alumni Center, University Park campus. RSVP here.

Sincerely,

Amy Dupain Vashaw
