East Stroudsburg University’s student group PRIDE (People Representing Individual Diversity in Education) will host guest speaker Tyler Titus (pictured), the first openly transgender person to be elected in Pennsylvania when he won a seat on the Erie School Board in 2017. He will speak at 7:30 p.m. on March 22, in Stroud Hall's room 113, to share his experiences during the campaign, discuss issues of political discourse and the overall political process, the importance of minority representation in elected positions, and offer advice for those looking to enter the political arena. This event is free and open to the public. Members of the audience will be encouraged to ask questions and voice their concerns and ideas. For more information contact Zakkery Rome, president of PRIDE, at zrome@live.esu.edu; or Matthew Simmons, LGBTQA Center coordinator at 570-422-3614 or email msimmons@esu.edu. (Photo provided)
