NEW TIME/PLACE: What's the (T)ea?: Black, Queer, and Here!
Exploration of Black-LGBTQ+ Identity
Wednesday, February 27, 2019 · 4:30 PM - 6 PM
This series is geared towards exploring social justice needs for various marginalized populations. We all talk about how diverse UMBC is but, what does that mean in reality? How does it show up in how we communicate and interact with each other? When does celebrating diversity shift into inclusivity that creates positive social change in and outside our campus community? This series hopes to help us grapple with these questions. Join us for a facilitated discussion of these topics, voice your opinions, and hear those of your fellow community members.
This session is dedicated to reflect on the intersections of Black and LGBTQ+ identities. Participants will reflect on their identities, evaluate how those identities impact their lives, and discuss the complexities of inhabiting multiple marganalized communities. This will be followed by a discussion on how to be inclusive of those in the LGBTQ+ community as we talk about blackness and vice versa regardless of our own held identities.
All undergrads, grads, staff, and faculty are encouraged to attend! Need to request disability-based accommodations or have any questions?
