LGBT scholar Amy Sueyoshi, Ph.D., left, who earlier this month was appointed dean of San Francisco State University's College of Ethnic Studies, receives congratulations from Dr. Manisha Israni-Jiang, holding baby Taalia, and CJ Jiang at Asian Pacific Islander Queer Women and Transgender Community's Lunar New Year Banquet Saturday, April 20, at the Ed Roberts Campus in Berkeley. Sueyoshi was the guest of honor at the event, where she received the organization's Phoenix Award. SF State officials said Sueyoshi becomes the first woman appointed to the position in the college's 50-year history. She had served as interim dean of the department since January 2018.
