What People Are Saying

Ann Engelland, M.D.

Andy opened for a lecture I gave to New York state school nurses on LGBTQ issues and wowed, moved, and taught the participants with his clarity, pathos, and brilliance. What a way to teach understanding and tolerance!

Ann Engelland, M.D., Adolescent and Young Adult Health

Andy proved himself a knowledgeable and engaging trainer. He conducted several workshops aimed at raising institutional awareness and sensitivity towards members of our community identifying along the LGBTQ spectrum. Andy's knowledge of the prominent issues helped foster a robust discussion of ways we can strengthen institutional support for members of this community. Equally important, Andy's demeanor and style created a supportive environment for participants to ask questions and explore uncertainties within their own knowledge base.

Professor Leslie Grinner

Andy Cofino is able to detail the struggles of community members whom many care nothing for or about, and to bring their issues to life, humanizing them and making their stories accessible and relevant to ALL people.

Geoffrey L. Brackett, D. Phil.

Out in the Open is a compelling, courageous, and uplifting work of spoken-word theater whose message is as contemporary as it is timeless. Andy Cofino has a rare talent. Every performance was absolutely sold-out with standing-room only access, each ending with thunderous standing ovations and multiple encores. Every single one of them was earned.

Geoffrey L. Brackett, D. Phil., Executive Vice President, Marist College

Andy is using his formidable, intellectual talents and skills and meshing them ingeniously to make real and positive social change.
