LGBTQIA Identities and Communities

Tuesday, April 25, 2017 - 1:00 - 4:00 p.m.

Cherrywood Room

The Gender and Sexuality Center for Queer and Trans Life will host a (certificate program) workshop on LGBTQIA identities. "In discussions of “diversity,” not everyone recognizes that gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation are important points of cultural difference that merit recognition and voice. Members of the University who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex, asexual, and/or queer often face isolation, silence, and invisibility. This workshop is an opportunity for participants to learn about LGBTQIA identities and communities, and to identify strategies they can employ to create a more open and welcoming campus climate."

Our office, in collaboration with other offices across campus, will be hosting additional workshops for CFANS faculty, staff, and students throughout the spring semester. As events become more solidified, we will be sure to provide you with any updates.
