“lea’s visit had a profound impact on the BU community, not just with their keynote remarks but also with the way they held space for and with others –by being deeply present, authentic, vulnerable, and intentional. Their ability to humanize and draw parallels between their journeys queering higher ed and queering Hollywood made for powerful storytelling. lea is also a rare kind of truth-teller; whether in a large ballroom or a small reception space, they bring a warmth that centers QTBIPOC people and invites broad audiences to engage with uncomfortable truths.”
