QSU x BiGLATA Presents "LGBTQ+ Williams Bicentennial Storytime" featuring Alumni of the '60s and '70s


BiGLATA and current QSU students invite the Williams alumni community to a panel discussion featuring LGBTQ+ alums of the 1960s and 1970s: Mike Dively ’61, Stephen Rosenbaum ’69, Rives Kistler ’71, Dan Pinello ’72, Lisa Capaldini ’78, and Lucy Bledsoe ’79.

What are the stories of LGBTQ+ Ephs? When Dan Pinello ’72 came out in the Williams Advocate in October of ’71 and invited fellow LGBTQ+ students to form a Gay Liberation Chapter, what was the response? How has the LGBTQ+ experience at Williams evolved over the decades? Panelists will answer these questions and more, sharing reflections on a variety of subjects including personal journeys since graduation and how our community can continue to make Williams a more equitable and inclusive place.

The conversation will be moderated by Monserrat Muñoz ’09 and Mijon Zulu ’09 with some pre-selected questions before opening up to audience Q&A.
