Navigating the Alphabet Soup - The Politics and Poetics of Queer Identity
Panel event with happy hour at HRC Headquarters

Cost: $5

Do you know what it means to be queer? Do you know how to talk about queer issues? If not, this panel is for you. We want to open the doors to a conversation about what queer means and doesn't mean and what you have to pay attention to when talking about the queer community.

In a world of ever-increasing inclusion of LGBTQ people, the terminology around sexual orientation and gender identity is receiving more and more attention. Many people outside of and within the LGBTQ community do not understand the constantly changing LGBTQ acronym, or why some organizations represent some letters and not others. How do we meaningfully discuss sexual orientation, gender identity, and queer identity without the knowledge of what these terms mean, do not mean, or might mean?

The Human Rights Campaign in partnership with the University of Chicago LGBT Alumni Network and the University Lavender League are holding a panel to help everyone learn and begin a dialogue around sexual, gender, and queer identities. A panel made of up those who work in the field or identify as queer will help us all start a conversation.

The event will begin with a cocktail hour (cash bar) and small bites to meet and greet with fellow alumni and community members. At 7pm the panel will begin with time for questions.

Date: Wednesday, April 29, 2015
Time: Cocktail hour 6-7pm; Panel to begin at 7pm
