7 to 9 PM

RSVP to ma123@nyu.edu

Margarita Lopez, Board Member of the New York City Housing Authority

Rosie Mendez, Member of the New York City Council from the 2nd District

Ann Northrop, journalist and activist, current co-host of TV news program Gay USA

Moderated by C. Nicole Mason, PhD, Assistant Professor and Executive Director of the Women of Color Policy Network at NYU Wagner

With the election of Annise Parker as the first openly gay mayor of Houston, the nation’s 4th largest city, women are increasingly at the forefront of LGBT equity and American politics. As the New York Times recently observed regarding queer women and the entertainment industry, “The lengthening list of prominent “out” lesbians on the small screen — Ellen DeGeneres, Rachel Maddow, Suze Orman, Jane Velez-Mitchell, Wanda Sykes — isn’t quite mirrored by a comparable list of openly gay men.” Can the same be said for queer women in public service?

University Lecture Hall, Room 101
19 West 4th Street
