LGBTQ+ Voices: Monica Garrido

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 will highlight the creative works of LGBTQ+ artists, activists and organizers to explore issues that impact LGBTQ+ communities at UTSC and Toronto more broadly.
