Q21: A Conversation Café – LGBTQIA: Community, Coalition & Identity
November 14 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
- In your experience, how can identity labels such as (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and others) be useful and/or limiting?
- What does it mean to share community across individuals with different identities and lived experiences?
- Do you think an “LGBTQ+ community” exists? What would it mean to “belong” to the “LGBTQ+ community”?
Join us for a Q21 conversation cafe where we talk about labels and identity, and how we come together to form community. We will explore the way that the LGBTQ+ acronym is socially and historically situated, and what it means to share community across all our intersectional identities.
This discussion will be facilitated by Dr. Tori Smith, a lecturer at the Mark Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity studies at U of T.
Q21: A Conversation Café is your weekly opportunity to converse and connect with students and guest facilitators about the topics related to LGBTQ+ community. Q21 will take place every Thursday from 3:00 – 4:30 pm. Each week will have a theme and a new guest facilitator.
