Join Dr. Elizabeth Collins for a discussion on Angelic Troublemakers: Fierce Stories of LGBTQIA+ Resistance, on Tuesday, April 18, from 3-4:30 p.m., in the B Building (Room B-204/210). This free campus event is for LGBTQIA+ students.
Dr. Collins will discuss major milestones in LGBTQIA+ history when the queer community stood up and demanded change! Topics will include the White Nights Riots in San Francisco, the queer takeover of the American Psychiatric Association and “Die-In’s” led by ACT UP to combat government denial about the AIDS epidemic.
Attendees will also learn about famous figures, such as Amelio Robles Avila, a transgender man who fought in the Mexican revolution; Marsha P. Johnson, the Black transgender woman who stood at the front of the Stonewall Riot; and Rep. Mauree Turner, the first openly nonbinary and Muslim person elected to the Legislature in Oklahoma.
This gathering is a chance for LGBTQIA+ students to engage in conversation and build community while also discussing how to create their own social change.
Students hoping to explore sexual identification and gender in a safe and affirming environment should attend.
