LGBTQ Panel at UAA Tonight

A panel of lesbian, transgendered and Samoan "fa'afafine" students and community members will discuss LGBTQ personal experiences and issues on campus and in the community, on March 31, 7 p.m. in the UAA/APU Consortium Library, room 307.

"Ultimately the goal is to get people talking," writes Kimberly Pace, Director of Women's Studies at UAA. "We don't necessarily have to agree, but let's keep the conversation alive."

The LGBTQ discussion is presented by the University of Alaska, Anchorage (UAA) Women's Studies Program as part of Women's History Month.

The event is open to all members of the UAA community - students, faculty & staff - as well as to community members from Anchorage and surrounding areas, whether LGBTQ or straight. It is free of charge and refreshments will be served.

Here is Kimberly's report:

"It was fantastic! There were about 30 people in attendance and it was a great combination of students and community members. UAA's "The Family" and Identity both had speakers as well as PFLAG. It was a wonderful blending of the campus and the community. Powerful information was exchanged and partnerships were forged. We all agreed that we should have similar gatherings at a minimum of once a semester if not more often. All in all, I pronounce it a smashing success!

"Thank you for your role in advertising our gathering. I look forward to alerting you to more forums as they come forth."
