LGBTQ International Students Discussion: “My Mother Tongue”
Monday, November 12, 2018 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
How many languages do you speak? What is your first language? How is humour different in all of the languages that you speak? What are your favourite phrases?
Language is a huge part of the cultures that we all carry around with us, and in a diverse city like Toronto, there are many different languages and accents.
Join the LGBTQ+ International Students Group for a discussion about navigating spaces with our different languages, accents and cultures. Are there people who sound like you in LGBTQ+ spaces you have been in? How does the way you speak impact your experiences within different spaces at U of T and in Toronto? Share your experiences and hear from other students.
LGBTQ International Students events are organized by the Sexual & Gender Diversity Office (SGDO) and the Centre for International Experience (CIE) at the University of Toronto. This group exists to help build a network of students, identify needs, and foster a community on campus. Through the LGBTQ International Student group you will connect with others through fun and exciting activities!
LGBTQ stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer, Questioning and all sexual and gender diversities. The term International Students is also used broadly and includes anyone who may identify themselves as international students regardless of citizenship/immigration status.
