Description: The Nancy Kelly Memorial Lecture "The Economic Case for LGBT Equality: Changing the World with a New Idea" will be given by M.V.

Her books on LGBT economic issues have debunked the myth of gay affluence and have shown that same-sex marriage is good for society. Part of Fitchburg State's observance of Women's History Month.
