Nyle DiMarco will speak at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 16, in Hillside Auditorium. The lecture will be followed by a brief question and answer period.

Nyle DiMarco is an actor, model and activist. He was born into a large multigenerational deaf family in New York. He is constantly breaking down barriers from becoming a fan favorite on “America’s Next Top Model” season 22, to being the first deaf winner of Dancing with the Stars. After finding his own success, DiMarco has mobilized his platform to become an advocate and activist for the LBTQ community and the Nyle DiMarco Foundation to promote educational access to help others succeed.
