Penn State Altoona will present a lecture and performance by Anthony Ward titled "With Flowers" on Wednesday, October 11, 2017, at 6:00 p.m. in the Pond View Lounge of the Slep Student Center.
In this captivating, beautiful, and inspiring program, Ward tells his story of coming out in a very traditionally based military family. He relates his experience from initial rejection to acceptance with his family and himself. He describes his life journey towards discovering what it means to be a man who is openly gay and respected as a human being, sharing his art and his love to help raise the way humanity sees itself. Ward's lecture concludes with a performance of movement, music, and flowers that will leave a lasting memory and encourage all who experience it to follow their heart and be their self.
