The University Libraries invites you to join us for a conversation with Rae Senarighi on Wednesday, April 13, from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. Senarighi is a transgender artist whose work features empowering portraits of transgender individuals. His TRANScend: Transgender Voices exhibit is currently displayed in the Norlin commons.

This virtual event will be conversation-style where Senarighi will discuss his story and art background Topics will also center around ways that LGBTQ+ and allies can connect to self-love during these trying political times and a discussion of challenges to trans rights happening around the country and in Colorado. Registration is required.

Each portrait in Senarighiighi ’s TRANSCEND series represents a person who is openly trans/nonbinary and, in celebration of their individuality, each subject is painted in bright, rainbow colors that represent pride in intersectional held identities.
