Honoring Pride Month: A Frank Conversation About Gender and Sexuality
Start Date: 6/2/2021Start Time: 11:00 AM
End Date: 6/2/2021End Time: 12:00 PM
Event Description
In this panel discussion, we will discuss the history of Pride Month and what it means to the LGBTQIA+ community today through a conversation grounded in the experiences of LGBTQIA+ students, faculty and professional staff members in the Drexel community. Zoom registration link.
 
The event will include a brief overview defining key gender- and sexuality-based terms and summarizing the history of Pride Month in the United States. The panel discussion will then be framed around LGBTQIA+ visibility, political discrimination, microaggressions, and cultural and generational nuances. In addition to learning from the experiences of our panelists, we will also explore the history of anti-LGBTQIA+ bias and violence in the United States. Strategies and resources for allyship and how to get involved will be provided.
