WSU-Kimberly-DarkIn honor of National Coming Out Day, Winona State University will host Kimberly Dark in “The Gayness: Love and Hate in America” at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 8, in East Hall, Kryzsko Commons.

“The Gayness: Love and Hate in America” is an entertaining and thought-provoking program to help students understand why things get tense when gender or sexuality is discussed in America.

Dark will also host “Games for Social Creators” at 3 p.m. Oct. 8 in Dining rooms E, F and G, Kryzsko Commons. This workshop for students will promote creating a positive and inclusive culture.

Dark is a writer, speaker and storyteller. She is the author of five award-winning performance scripts and a number of educational programs regarding the body in culture – how appearances and identities influence our experiences in the world related to gender, race, body type/size, beauty, ability, etc.
