Social Justice Activist to Speak at Arts & Lectures Event

The seventh Arts & Lectures event features D’Lo, a queer/transgender Tamil-Sri Lankan-American speaker and performer. 

The event is at 5 p.m. on April 12 in the USU Ballroom. The event is free for Cal State San Marcos students. Faculty, staff, alumni and community members can purchase tickets online via the Arts & Lectures website.

D’Lo’s work ranges from keynotes and workshops to stand-up comedy, from one-person shows to poetry and spoken word. Rooted in social justice, D'Lo brings the fierce with the funny through his presentations and stand-up comedy about being a queer/trans artist and activist raised within an immigrant family and community, as well as his stories about being an artist schooled by hip-hop, feminists and queer artist elders. D'Lo's acting credits include the HBO series “Looking,” the Amazon series “Transparent,” the Netflix series “Sense8,” the USA Network series “Mr. Robot” and NBC's “Connecting.” 

CSUSM’s Arts & Lectures series offers a diverse lineup of artistic, cultural and scholarly events every semester based on input and proposals from students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members. Events are scheduled to take place largely in person this spring, subject to change based on developments related to COVID-19. Attendees can reserve tickets online via the Arts & Lectures website
