VMM is a proud supporter of CUNY's Queens College and is involved with several ongoing academic and student life endeavors at the school.
In June, VMM was the prime sponsor of the 2019 CUNY Pridefest, held at the Queens College campus. The firm also sponsors the school’s GLASA (Gender Love And Sexuality Alliance) club.
On November 13, partners Joseph Milizio, Andrew Kimler, and Joseph Trotti were invited to speak about their work in the firm’s LGBTQ Representation Practice as part of QC’s “Professionals on Campus” lecture series. The lecture was also part of the syllabus for the Women and Gender Studies’ minor in LGBT+ Studies, taught by Prof. JV Fuqua.
On November 18, Messrs. Kimler and Trotti led a workshop for faculty, administration, staff, and students titled “Power Up! Know Your Rights.” The focus was on the recent cases before the Supreme Court regarding workplace protection for LGBTQ people, as well as the legal rights of non-biological parents in the New York Family Court.
Below are some pictures from the events.
