Events & Workshops

Fall 2014 Events have not currently been planned.  The following are common events either hosted by or worked in collaboration with the ERC.

National Coming Out Day

An internationally observed civil awareness day celebrating individuals who publicly identify as bisexual, gay, lesbian, transgender. Observed annually on October 11, the anniversary of the 1987 National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights.

Queer Community Reception

This event is typically held by the MultiCultural Center.  It allows queer students, staff, and faculty to come together so that they may meet each other, create new friendships, and learn who allies within the queer community are.

HomoComing

The other Homecoming dance where all are always welcome.

Trans Week of Remembrance

A week memorializing those who have been killed as a result of transphobia, or the hatred or fear of transgender and gender non-conforming people.
This event is being held tomorrow, November 20th, 2014 from 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.  We will be meeting at 5:00 p.m. in the U.C. Quad for a candle light vigil and at 6:00 p.m. we will move into the MultiCultural Center (Balabanis House 55) for an open mic.

KINK on Campus

A series of workshops that explore safe and consensual sex among adults.

National Day of Silence

The Day of Silence is a national event that brings attention to bullying and harassment in schools. Students from middle school to college take a vow of silence in an effort to encourage schools and classmates to address the problem of anti-LGBT.

Night of Noise

After the Day of Silence, the Night of Noise is the time to break the silence, release tension, and celebrate.
