Celebrity Guest Speaker: Romi Klinger from The Real L Word discusses love, life, and success as a bisexual woman of color
QPOC@VT launches the first of its Identity Speaker Series with the help of TV and radio personality Romi Klinger. Exposing her life for the world to see on Showtime's The Real L Word, Romi shared her struggles with alcohol, her commitment to getting sober, her love life, and her vision for her jewelry line.
This speaker series highlights the nuanced experiences of professional queer people of color as they navigate personal and professional tragedies and triumphs. Students, faculty, staff, and community members are invited to listen to Romi explain how the Hokie community can embrace our differences and our inner diversities through the narrative of her own personal journey.
This event is sponsored by QPOC@VT, University Libraries, Multicultural Programs and Services, and The Women's Center. It is hosted by Wekhara Watson, MA, MFT New Directions Therapisy of Vera House, Inc.
