Join us for a powerhouse kickoff to the second semester of the Learn More Series, as we welcome trans Black Hollywood star lea robinson for a keynote luncheon, Q&A, and buffet luncheon. Seats are limited -- register early!

From their leading role supporting queer college students to their leading role in the Amazon hit series A League of Their Own, lea robinson (they/them) has been at the forefront of disrupting gender binaries and pushing for visibility in spaces that historically have erased queer and trans people of color.

A rising star who identifies as a trans, queer, non-binary, butch, and multi-racial actor, lea (pronounced “lee”) burst on the Hollywood scene playing A League of Their Own’s Bertie Hart, a trans Black man living in the 1940s. But long before lea's rise in Hollywood, they were championing QTBIPOC stories and experiences. As a higher ed administrator in Diversity and LGBTQIA+ work, lea championed students with multiple marginalized identities. Focused on social justice and restorative practices, they played a leading role supporting and affirming QTBIPOC students at Columbia University and UC Berkeley.
