SGDO Presents: My Mother’s Cooking
Friday, March 3, 2017 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
For many of us, food is a key component of our cultural identity as it holds a sense of familiarity and plays a vital role in connecting us to our roots. On Friday March 3rd, we are bringing together SGDO two programs – the Queer & Trans Students of Colour and LGBTQ International Students groups – to talk about our favourite thing…food!
As international students, immigrants, or children of immigrants, many of us share a complex relationship with the food we associate with ‘home’. Join us for a conversation on the significance of food in culture and religion, the accessibility of the foods that are familiar to us, and the commodification of our food and customs in the context of Canada.
LOCATION: Room 421, 21 Sussex Avenue
QTSOC (Queer & Trans Students of Colour) is a monthly discussion group for Black, Indigenous, and other racialized UofT community members who identify as LGBTQ, gender non-conforming, two-spirit, third gender and intersex. As a group, we talk about how the intersections of race, sexuality and gender affect our personal experiences and communities.

LGBTQ International Students events are organized by the Sexual & Gender Diversity Office (SGDO) in collaboration with 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.
