The following events are queer/queer-related events the ERC is typically involved with, whether by hosting or collaborating with other organizations on.
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.
2017: ERC along with Q&A, QMAP, QSU, and the MCC will be tabling on the UC quad, playing music and offering a space for fun and coming out stories. We also want to acknowledge the queer students who are not out, for whatever reason. You are valid and celebrated.
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.
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.
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. This year's Day of Silence falls on April 17th.
Night of Noise
After the Day of Silence, the Night of Noise is the time to break the silence, release tension, and celebrate. This year's Night of Noise falls on April 17th.
