Amelia Gapin lecture on trans identity
Shippensburg University will host a lecture
with Amelia Gapin, a software engineer and the first trans woman to grace the
cover of Women’s Running magazine, on Oct. 10 at 7 p.m. in Ceddia Union
Building, MPR A.
Gapin’s lecture, “I Am Entirely Me,” focuses
on her very public transition and will educate the campus community on the
complexities of her trans identity, one that cannot be fully comprehended
without considering the significant impact of sexual orientation and gender
identity as well as the societal constructs established within gender binaries.
This presentation will serve as a springboard for a larger conversation on
campus in which students, faculty, and staff explore and discuss the unique intersections
of LGBTQ+ individuals.
The free and public event is sponsored by the
Office of Social Equity, Commission on Human Understanding, LGBTQ+ Concerns
Committee, Career and Community Engagement Center, Counseling and College
Student Personnel Department, Social Work and Gerontology Department, Dining
Services, Women’s Center and Athletics Department.
