people in an online chat

Transylvania University on Oct. 24 hosted a panel discussion on the documentary “CURED,” which chronicles the battle waged by a small group of activists who declared war against a formidable institution and won a crucial victory in the modern movement for LGBTQ equality. These activists included Transylvania alumnus John Fryer ’57, an accomplished psychiatrist and one of the most influential figures in LGBTQ advocacy in American medical history. 

The discussion featured co‑directors Bennett Singer and Patrick Sammon; Cole Rucker ’85, executive producer of “CURED” and Transylvania alumnus; and Deidra Dennie, Transylvania’s vice president for diversity and inclusion.
