University of Massachusetts, Amherst director to give 2019 Coley Lecture

Genny Beemyn, director of the Stonewall Center at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and the Trans Policy Clearinghouse coordinator for Campus Pride, will deliver the 25th annual Andrea Carson Coley Lecture
at the University of Georgia on April 12 at 12:30 p.m. in the M. Smith Griffith Auditorium of the Georgia Museum of Art.

The lecture, “The Experiences of Trans Students Today: What We Know and Do Not Know (But Should),” will follow a reception honoring the Coley family at 11:30 a.m. This year’s events also will recognize the milestone of the Institute for Women’s Studies bringing LGBT scholarship to the campus for 25 years. Both the lecture and reception are open free to the public. 

The Andrea Carson Coley Lecture, hosted by the UGA Institute for Women’s Studies, was endowed through a donation from Andrew and Kathy Coley in memory of their daughter, Andrea Carson Coley (1972-1993), who was a certificate candidate in women’s studies. This year’s lecture is co-sponsored by the Georgia Museum of Art and the UGA LGBT Resource Center.
