Andrew Solomon

Mar 2014

Solomon, a writer on politics, psychology and culture, presents a talk on life’s adversities and how we can experience growth through the most difficult times in our lives.

The gay activist Harvey Milk was once asked by a younger gay man what he could do to help the movement, and Milk said, “Go out and tell someone.” There’s always somebody who wants to confiscate our humanity, and there are always stories that restore it. If we live out loud, we can trounce the hatred and expand everyone’s lives.
