lakeChemeketa remains a place of inclusiveness for people and ideas and extends a warm welcome to guest speaker and civil rights lawyer Lake Perriguey.

On Wednesday, November 30, Lake will present “Busting the Binary and Gender Fluidity — It’s not Y2K” and lead a discussion about gender identity and equal protection, among other issues and groundbreaking cases affecting the LGBTQ+ community.

Lake chose a legal career after an arrest protesting laws that discriminated against gay and lesbian people.

After attending Lewis and Clark Law School, he has represented queer and transpeople in family law cases and in work, government and public accommodation discrimination cases, including the first person in the United States to be legally recognized as nonbinary.
