The University of Wisconsin-Superior hosted a documentary screening and discussion of "Under the Rainbow," on Friday, September 27, in the William 'Pope' Wright Jr. Student Center located in Old Main, Room 232.

The screening took place at noon with a discussion and conversation about the film with Adie following at 3 p.m. These events were open to the community.

Adie is the co-founder and Chief Servant/Executive Director of The Equality Hub. She is an LGBTQ+ rights advocate and defender with significant experience in communications, digital campaigning, and public speaking in Nigeria and globally. Adie’s stories have been featured in various LGBTQ+ anthology series and she has spoken at multiple public forums in relation to sexual orientation and gender identity. Adie’s work earned her an invitation to participate in the Obama Foundation Leaders: Africa Program and a place on Nigeria’s 100 Most Inspiring Women list. She holds an MBA from Webster University, a master’s degree in human services management from the University of Baltimore, and a bachelor’s degree in business administration from UW-Superior.
