Starts 7:00 PM
Wednesday Apr 19, 2017
JBD, Ruth Stricker Dayton Campus Center

A transgender activist, author, and lawyer. In 2009, two months after transitioning from male to female, she became the first attorney in Iowa to engage in jury trials in separate genders. In February, 2010, Krug became a contributing author to ACCESSline, an Iowa-based monthly publication that covered lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) topics of interest. Krug later became a columnist for a Minneapolis LGBT publication, Lavender Magazine, in August 2011; her column, Skirting the Issues, received a Gold Medal Award for Excellence from the Minnesota Magazine and Publishing Association in 2013.

In this well-received motivational/inspirational presentation is part my story, part discussion about barriers to self-discovery and authenticity that all humans encounter because all of us lack an “owner’s manual.” A full description of the talk can be found here.
