Featured Presenter: Gilbert Gonzales. 
Wednesday, October 29, 2014, 12:00-1:00 p.m. in room 125 Coffey Hall

LGBT people are often considered, both in policy and research, as a monolithic group, but many LGBT people possess other social identities that may expose them to other forms of structural and interpersonal discrimination, such as racism, sexism and ageism. For the first time in its 56-year history, a question regarding sexual orientation was added to the U.S. National Interview Survey, the principal source of information on the health of the population in the United States. This presentation by Gilbert Gonzales (UMN School of Public Health) uses new health data to explore disparities in health and access to acare at the intersections of sexual orientation, race/ethnicity, gender and age.

The St. Paul GLBTA Advisory Group was formed through a partnership between the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resources Sciences Office for Diversity and Inclusion and the Gender and Sexuality Center for Queer and Trans Life Office to raise awareness and build institutional capacity around key issues of the GLBTA community. The group works on initiatives and events that enhance inclusivity on the St. Paul campus and now has wide representation from colleges and units including the College of Design, College of Continuing Education, Career and Internship Services, Magrath Library, and Bailey Hall.

The St. Paul Campus GLBTA Advisory Group is open to all faculty, staff, and students. Please contact Emily Ehlinger at or 612-624-7953 if you would like to be added to the listserv.
