Location: Student Union, Building 58E, Room 1111

Bring your lunch and discuss religious and secular worldviews, culture/customs and how they interact with gender and sexuality. Each month, we will explore a different topic, and look at what different sacred and secular works, LGBT perspectives, and/or cultural traditions say about the topic and engage in casual dialogue. This event is a collaboration of three departments: Interfaith Center, LGBT Resource Center and the Department of Diversity Initiatives. It takes place every second and fourth Wednesday of each month at one of the respective departments.
