2021 Panels & Conversations
Queer Identity, Gender & Trauma Panel
January 20 @ 6:00p
Join us for a discussion on queer identity, gender & trauma. We will be chatting with folks working with queer and trans communities in the areas such as suicide prevention, intimate partner violence response, and youth advocacy. The discussion will explore the many ways in which queer and trans people experience trauma, how gender identity impacts one’s experience of trauma, disparities amongst women’s and LGBTQIA+ communities, and how we can better serve queer and trans people as mental health professionals, advocates, community members and allies. This panel is presented in partnership with The Women’s Consortium & Trans Lifeline.
Panel will feature thoughts from Nadine Ruff, MSW, Shane Scott, IV Staklo and Brielle Roundtree. The panel will be modrated by journalist, activist, and Trans Lifeline volunteer Karleigh Webb.
Why Environmental Advocacy is Queer Advocacy?
January 27 @ 12:00p
Join us for a discussion where we will explore the intersectionality of gender identity, sexual orientation, and the environment. How will climate change uniquely effect our community? If we don’t take a seat at the discussion table, how could decisions addressing environmental concerns impact our health and wellness? Hear perspectives from artists, activists and academics on how and why the effects of climate change and polution disproportionally effect the queer community, particularly queer communities of colour and why as a community we need to prioritize environmental equity as part of our push for equality.
Panel will feature perspectives from Hamzah Jhaveri, Adrian Huq and Arien Wilkerson. Moderator will be announced soon.
