Spring 2021 Virtual Events at the LGBTQ+ Culture Center

The LGBTQ+ Culture Center is pleased to continue its INTERSECTIONS series with seven additional sessions focused on Queer Student Leadership. The Fall Series, A Focus on Race, had 951 Zoom participants and over 4800 Facebook views. INTERSECTIONS: A FOCUS ON QUEER STUDENT LEADERSHIP is an opportunity to dialogue with several Indiana University student leaders as they grapple with balancing various aspects of their identities. It is an opportunity to hear our students share their stories and hopefully broaden our understanding of the unique ways students develop, engage, and experience their identities at Indiana University. These Zoom and Facebook Live events will be hosted by Bruce E. Smail, Interim Director, LGBTQ+ Culture Center & Special Assistant to the Vice President for Diversity, Equity, & Multicultural Affairs.
