The College at Brockport’s 14th Annual Diversity Conference

Event Title

Being Respectful to Gender Variant Identities

Description

Human existence is a wonderful aspect of life. There are multiple stories within the world that are still unknown. Identities come from a person’s history, culture, race, ethnic/cultural background. This workshop will bring to light the dark haze that LGBTQ are severally "different" because they do not fit into the heteronormative society of "being straight and normal." Instead, someone who identifies within the LGBTQ community will be seen as a human being that has a rich story to tell and contains other identities that define them. Identifying within the LGBTQ is not the focal point of any person's existence.

Presenter(s)

Presenter:

Lucky Summer Light, a social work student, was recently an education intern at the Gay Alliance of the Genesee Valley. Lucky has multiple experiences presenting on LGBTQ issues and identities and has answered many questions on how to be more inclusive in one’s facilities to those who have gender variant identities and sexual orientations. Lucky enjoys discussing and listening to other opinions and perspectives on various topics of interest. Lucky believes that by getting a conversation started, we can begin to discuss solutions.
