October 23, 2009: Urvashi Vaid
Urvashi Vaid, one of the most visible faces of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) movement, delivered the Spencer T. Olin Fellows annual lecture October 23 in Graham Chapel.
Throughout her career, Vaid has fought for equal rights for gays and lesbians. In her 1996 groundbreaking book, "Virtual Equality: The Mainstreaming of Gay and Lesbian Liberation," she lays out her view that true liberation will come only from institutional transformation.
