Sharing Stories: An Intergenerational LGBTQ Discussion

Wednesday, March 12, 2014

4:00 – 5:30 pm

Multi-Purpose Room, Koffler House (569 Spadina Ave, 2nd floor)

 

Take part in a unique opportunity for intergenerational discussion, story-telling and education within the LGBTQ community on the University of Toronto Campus.  The Sexual & Gender Diversity Office and Centre for Community Partnerships is excited to welcome members of the Older LGBT Supportive Writing Group at The 519 Church Street Community Centre to share stories from their recent short story collection.  Sit back and listen to stories by Kim Chee Lee, Paul Cheung, Megan Hutton, and Rachel Lewis that navigate sexual and gender diversity in the past and current realities of older LGBTQ people living in Toronto.

Following the stories there will be an opportunity to ask questions and engage in discussions that connect our lives today within many generations of LGBTQ people.

The readers will also be joined by Heather Bain who is the Coordinator of Community Development Services, 50+ LGBT Programs and Senior Pride Network and Rosalyn Forrester, Trans Access Coordinator at The 519 Church Street Community Centre who can answer questions regarding advocacy and services for aging LGBTQ people in Toronto.  The Centre for Community Partnerships will share information about how you can get involved in volunteer opportunities at U of T with supporting LGBTQ people in long-term care facilities.

Food and refreshments will be provided.
