LGBTQ+ History Month Speaker: Trans Rights in India with Kalki Subramaniam 

 The LGBTQ+ Resource Center would like to invite all to attend our LGBTQ+ History Month speaker event with Kalki Subramaniam. This event is a collaborative effort with Evergreen Story and Desi Rainbow to bring one of the most recognized Indian transgender activists of our era to campus. Kalki is the founder of the Sahodari Foundation, an organization that works for the social, political, and economic empowerment of transgender people. She is also an artist, poet, actor, Ted Speaker, and inclusion catalyst. We hope that you will join us for her keynote to learn more about what inclusivity means from an Indian context, the history of gender spectrums from Ancient India, and the power of art and writing for social change.
