Community Gathering Space: Navigating Grief in Queer & Trans Communities

Join the Sexual & Gender Diversity Office and the Mark S. Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies in mourning lives lost to violence and hatred at the recent shooting at Club Q in Colorado Springs. We are together in our grief, fatigue, and anger. And we are together as we denounce homophobia, transphobia, racism, and all forms of hate and discrimination.

Date: November 30, 2022
Time: 12pm – 1pm
