In celebration of its 20th anniversary, the University of Toronto Sexual & Gender Diversity Office presents LGBTQ+ Voices, a speaker series for the University of Toronto Scarborough Campus. This event is open to students, staff and faculty!
LGBTQ+ Voices highlights the creative works of LGBTQ+ artists, activists and organizers to explore issues that impact LGBTQ+ communities at UTSC and Toronto more broadly. Through a range of presentation styles, performances and facilitated discussions, speakers engage students and staff in exploring topics and questions related to intersectional LGBTQ+ identities and communities.
