Event Description

Please join the GW LGBTQ+ Alumni Network and GW Lambda Law Alumni Association for the inaugural “Out In” series. This conversation comes at an all too important time as anti-transgender laws and laws banning drag queens are being enacted across the nation. Our speakers and their discussion will center around their experience working in the sphere that is responsible for these sweeping changes. Attendees will hear how these individuals are creating change‚ adapting to new anti-LGBTQ+ rhetoric‚ and combating it at every level of government.

In-person registration is free to attend and includes heavy appetizers and beverages (beer‚ wine‚ and non-alcoholic). There will be a reception for in-person attendees after to the panel discussion. 

This event is open to the entire GW community‚ inclusive of all races and identities. For questions‚ email Ashlynn Fields at
