The LGBTQ+ Resource Center staff and community is heartbroken by the news of the tragic death of KU '22 alum, Ryan Padovani. Ryan worked for the center from fall 2019 until he graduated spring 2022. He was a kind and creative soul and was excited to be starting his career in professional writing. We will be holding a candlelight vigil in Ryan's memory 7-8:30 p.m. Thursday, May 11, Boxwood House backyard. Everyone is welcome.
