What is a Discussion Group?
Discussion groups are formed with the goal of creating a safe space and an environment conducive to critical conversation and community building. Joining a discussion group at the Center for Diversity and Inclusion may be of importance to anyone who is interested in promoting, supporting, and celebrating inclusion and diversity. Conversations typically focus on a particular topic, and are conducted in a group the size that allows participation by all members.
LGBTQIA+ Discussion Group
Time: Every Tuesday from 8:00-9:00 p.m.
Place: The Center for Diversity and Inclusion (Hamar House)
Looking for a safe and affirming place to converse with other members of the LGBTQIA+ community? Look no further! The LGBTQIA+ discussion group is a supportive dialogue group designed to help students process identity related challenges. Topics include but are not limited to: belonging, community, coming out, intersecting identities, and current events. The group is co-facilitated by two LGBTQIA+ students and is a closed group, meaning one must identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and/or asexual* to attend. We ask that allies show their support by joining the LGBTQIA+ student organization, Keweenaw Pride (KP).
*This list is not exhaustive. Those holding marginalized sexual orientations and gender identities that are not explicitly listed, are welcome to attend the discussion group.
