Wayne Turner, '08 alum and Staff Attorney at the National Health Law Program, is featured in The Washington Blade. In the article Turner discusses his first day of law school, LGBT activism, and living in Washington, D.C.
From The Washington Blade: "Wayne Turner remembers crying on the first day of school — although it was law school at UDC David A. Clarke School of Law and he was 40 years old that day in 2005.
"The founding professor, Edgar Cahn, was there telling us in this big orientation that their mission was to take bad-ass activists and unleash them on the world,” Turner says. "He said, ‘You’re not just here alone, you’re on the shoulders of everyone who’s come through here before.’ It was about seven years since my partner had died and I thought, ‘Yes, I have found my home.’ The tears just started streaming down my face so there I was, crying on the first day of school.""
