About this Event

Yale GALA Memorial for Andrew Dowe (Yale '08, Ph.D '20), Associate Director of the Yale Office of LGBTQ Resources and Lecturer, Yale's Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies

RSVP REQUIRED

Close friend, colleague and member of Yale GALA Andrew Dowe YC ’08, PhD ’20, Associate Director of the Office of LGBTQ Resources and Lecturer and DUS of Women’s, Gender & Sexuality Studies at Yale, died unexpectedly this weekend at his home. While we do not yet know what the cause of death was, it appears that Andrew died of natural causes. Andrew organized LGBTQ reunion receptions, student-alumni dinners, and many other events with GALA. We will miss his wit and laughter.

Yale GALA thanks the Yale University Chaplain's Office and Rev. Jenny Peek M.Div '17 for helping to host this memorial for LGBTQ+ alumni.

If you are interested in speaking at the memorial for Andrew or have pictures you would like us to share, please be in touch, mickey@yalegala.org.
