The LGBT and Allied Lawyers of Utah will be presenting University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law Professor Terry Kogan with the inaugural Pioneer Award at the organization’s spring event on May 24. The award is intended to “recognize pioneers in the LGBT community.”
It will be presented by Kate Kendell, executive director of the National Center for Human Rights in San Francisco, who is 1988 alumna of the S.J. Quinney College of Law.
Kogan teaches in the areas of Contracts, Copyright Law, Trusts & Estates, Art Law, Legal Philosophy, and Sexuality and the Law. His most recent scholarship has explored issues related to photography and copyright law. He has spent the past decade considering the rights of transgender people, in particular issues surrounding the legal and cultural norms that mandate the segregation of public restrooms by sex.
Kogan has been active in gay and transgender politics in Utah, and serves on the Advisory Board of Equality Utah.
One of his latest projects, Stalled!, was featured in Metropolis magazine this week. View the segment here.
