Boykin's Election Trail

Leading gay-rights figure to speak about 'Presidential Campaign' issues at American University



Boykin

Keith Boykin, one of the leading national figures in the gay-rights movement, particularly as the movement intersects the African-American community, will be in Washington on Wednesday, Sept. 26. Boykin, who lives in New York, is coming at the invitation of the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Ally Resource Center at American University and is expected to deliver a speech titled, ”Race, Gender and Sexual Orientation in the 2008 Presidential Campaign.”

Nick Sakurai, program director of the center, says Boykin’s speech is a semester highlight. ”It’s larger than anything we’ve done in the last few years,” he says, adding that the event is intended to draw an audience beyond A.U. students. ”Definitely, all of the D.C. community is invited.”

Boykin is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. at A.U.’s Kay Chapel.
