To commemorate the 50th anniversary of coeducation, the Dartmouth LGBTQIA+ Alum Association (DGALA) and Women of Dartmouth invite you to an event exploring Dartmouth stories and perspectives of queer and trans women pre and post-coeducation.

Dana Bevan ‘69, Mary Klages ‘80, Amelia Cramer ‘82, and Dottie Foley ‘86 will speak about their journey to and through Dartmouth, where they found queer community, their struggles and triumphs, and their personal and professional lives since graduation.

Becca Wade ‘22 and Jess Chiriboga ‘24, will join the conversation to share their own experiences as queer students on campus now and throughout COVID-19.

This event will be moderated by S. Caroline Kerr ‘05, a current Dartmouth Trustee co-sponsored by all Dartmouth alumni affiliated groups and the Dartmouth Office of Pluralism and Leadership (OPAL).
