Pride Speaks September: Queer Student Leaders - Meet the Panel

Sep 16, 2021 | Seattle Pride

Pride Speaks is a monthly speaking series focused on the various topics that impact our LGBTQIA+ community. Each session, Seattle Pride invites experts to share their knowledge, reframe issues, and inspire action. After the panel discussion or talk, there's time for audience Q&A and 1-on-1 community building and networking.

This month we focus on LGBTQIA+ student leaders, particularly those in collegiate settings. We will ask such questions as:
- How is the LGBTQIA+ college experience different from that of our straight friends and family?
- What LGBTQIA+ events are missing for folks in your age group?
- What access and acceptance issues affecting LGBTQIA+ college students are not being discussed enough?
- How is the culture of your academic institution LGBTQIA-inclusive? How could it be more inclusive?
... and more!
