GLBT Studies & Campus Life "Beyond Marriage: Broadening LGBTQ Social Movements" discussion

The Schochet Endowment for GLBT Studies & Campus Life is please to present the second colloquium series of the Fall term, "Beyond Marriage: Broadening of LGBTQ Social Movements", on Thursday, December 8th from 4 to 5:30pm in room 140 Nolte Center. The discussion will be facilitated by Myrl Beam, and among the panelists are Jesus Estrada-Perez and Eli Vitulli.

This discussion will seek to broaden how we define terms such as home, family, LGBTQ issues, and relationships, while paying especially close attention to the ways in which social movements claiming marriage as their central tenet do so at the expense of our most marginalized LGBTQ communities.
