Dr. Kevin Osten-Garner for
Perspective on 'Insensitive' Float

The Huffington Post talked with the Adler University’s Kevin Osten-Garner, Psy.D., for perspective on a float in Sunday's Chicago Pride Parade that drew criticism for signage viewed as body-shaming and insensitive.

"[T]he tone-deafness of the signage and the float itself is striking," he said. "In an event designed to promote pride, inclusion, connection and community, [their] float message is one of division, ridicule and shame – even if unintentional."

Dr. Osten-Garner is Associate Vice President of Academic Affairs, Division of Training and Community Engagement, and Director of the Adler University's LGBTQ Mental Health and Inclusion Center.
