Lo Denmon (they/them/their) serves as the Assistant Director of Kent State University’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Questioning Plus (LGBTQ+) Center. Lo joins the Kent State LGBTQ+ Center from their home state of Georgia, where they earned a Bachelor of Arts in psychology and a Master of Education in professional counseling and college student affairs from the University of West Georgia.
Lo has a long history of supporting equity and inclusion, from their time as an undergrad, through their graduate assistantship in Georgia Tech's Women's Resource Center, and in their previous role in UWG's Center for Diversity and Inclusion.
Living and working with LGBTQ populations in parts of rural Northwest Georgia, Lo is passionate about busting myths about rural communities and providing counternarratives that tell a truer story about who exists in those places. Lo loves to have conversations that challenge and change broader preconceptions about our world, especially those from academic perspectives.
When they're not at work, Lo enjoys sewing, crocheting, kayaking, and regretting that they can't use reaction memes in real life conversations. Lo will be working with many services and programs through the Center including the QUEST Mentorship program and the LGBTQIA+ Living Learning Program.
