Not all LGBTQ people are White or Atheist. This cross cultural session allows for participants to share their own multiple identities; explores the intersections between race, culture, sexual orientation, and gender; and helps to illuminate the challenges of LGBTQ students with multiple identities. A particular emphasis is made on how different cultures and communities in the U.S. and internationally understand and define sexuality and gender minorities. Participants will leave with a personal action plan to use and reflect on in their daily life at UIS. Find out more and register at http://www.uis.edu/lgbtq/programs/SafeZone.html.
