Join QPenn 2012 in presenting their annual keynote speaker: actor and activist Alan Cumming! Doors open at 5:40 for what will be an exciting talk on some of today’s most pressing LGBT issues. Mr. Cumming will also take questions from the audience after the main address.
A brief introduction to Mr. Cumming:
Right now he is the political maverick Eli Gold on CBS’ The Good Wife, for which he has received Emmy, SAG and Satellite award nominations, but over the last couple of years he has also: sung at venues around the globe including the Sydney Opera House; appeared in films opposite Helen Mirren, Cher, James Franco and Christina Aguilera; voiced a Smurf, a goat and Hitler; entered upside down and suspended by his ankles in a Greek tragedy, and sparred with Dianne Wiest in Chekhov; directed and starred in a musical condom commercial; written articles for Newsweek,Harpers Bazaar and Out; recorded an award-winning album of songs and a dance remix; made three documentaries; released a second fragrance (naturally named Second Cumming); hosted PBS’ Masterpiece Mystery as well as speaking out for LGBT equality and civil rights and going to Buckingham Palace to receive an OBE for all of the above. Time Magazine also called him one of the most fun people in show business.
Alan’s activism and passion for causes such as LGBT rights, sex education and genital integrity have earned him many humanitarian awards from the LGBT Task Force, The Human Rights Campaign, The Trevor Project, Lambda Legal, The Point Foundation and GLAAD’s Vito Russo Media Award.”
