Bob Satawake - Breaking Protocol

Next: Sep 16 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Resource Center

Description

In 2013, Bob J. Satawake accompanied his husband, Ambassador James "Wally" Brewster, to the Dominican Republic for a historic and unnecessarily controversial tour of duty representing the United States. As the first gay diplomatic spouse in the Western Hemisphere, Bob received little, if any, guidance from the U.S. State Department on how to navigate his new role - leaving him little choice but to break the rigid protocols of diplomatic life. He experienced discrimination, homophobia, and outright hostility as he attempted to forge a new path in a conservative and religious country. In Partnership with the Resource Center In cooperation with the Michael F. Price College of Business at the University of Oklahoma
