Dr. Lisa Tillmann, author of Between Gay and Straight: Understanding Friendship Across Sexual Orientation, will speak at Angelo State University at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 27, in the C.J. Davidson Conference Center in the Houston Harte University Center, 1910 Rosemont Drive.

An associate professor and chair of critical media and cultural studies at Rollins College in Florida, Tillmann has worked extensively with the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.  She will speak on “Ally in Action: Friendship and LGBT Civil Rights.”  The presentation is open free to the public.
