Ball State professors reflect on their experiences in the LGBTQ community.

It’s the first day of classes at Ball State. Leo Caldwell, assistant lecturer of media design, is ready to welcome a new group of students to his classes, prepared to teach them all he knows about journalism and design. Students file into the classroom, filling the empty desks around the room and preparing themselves for what they are about to learn in Caldwell’s class.  However, during Caldwell’s introduction, he includes a detail students may not know about him — Caldwell is transgender.
