Portland Mayor-elect Sam Adams will speak at Lewis & Clark on Oct. 7 as part of National Coming Out Week, a week-long series of events being organized by the Lewis & Clark student organization United Sexualities. The organization’s leaders say having Adams participate in these events reinforces the significance of this national celebration and sends a strong message that the LGBTQ community has been eager to make clear—discrimination and inequality affects all citizens.
Adams will speak on October 7 at 7 p.m. in Agnes Flanagan Chapel. The event is free and open to the public. Adams’ address is co-sponsored by the Gender Studies Department and United Sexualities and supported by the Office of the President and Office of the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences.
