Queer Conversations is a part of the LGBT Resource Center's educational programming. Based in dialogue and knowledge sharing, Queer Conversations creates a space for LGBTQIA+ students to explore nuanced topics within the LGBT community such as queer sexual wellness, racism in the queer community, the intersections of faith and sexuality, and more.
Queer Conversations: Quarantine Edition
Spring 2021: Brown Girls viewing parties & discussion
Even as we continue to be physically distant, the LGBT Resource Center still wants to provide students with the opportunity to be in community, explore topics that are important to them, and queer their conversations. So this Spring we are introducing Queer Conversations: Quarantine Edition where we will be watching Fatimah Asghar and Sam Bailey's web series Brown Girls.
Episode screenings and discussions will be monthly on February 16th, March 15th and April 12th 6:00pm to 7:30pm MST and are open to all University of Utah undergraduate and graduate students. You can sign up to participate here.
Students who sign up to participate in this spring's Queer Conversations will:
- be invited to all Zoom screenings and discussions on February 16th, March 15th, & April 12th 6:00-7:30 PM
- get access to an online Queer Conversations discussion channel through our Virtual Student Lounge on Discord
- receive links to be able to watch the series on your own time and discussion questions to share and talk about the series with others
The first 30 students to sign up will also receive a viewing party package of snacks and other goods from the LGBT RC by mail or pick-up.
Can't make it to all the viewing parties? Got major Zoom fatigue? Prefer to watch it all on your own time? Want to host your own discussions? You can still sign up! Queer Conversations: Quarantine Edition is designed for you to engage with the content in whatever way works for you. You can attend some, all, or none of the viewing parties. You can watch the episodes on your own time and just join the discussions. Utilize our Discord channel to talk about moments that made you laugh and hit you right in the feels. You'll get the discussion questions ahead of time so you can have your own viewing parties if you want. We just want to queer your conversations this spring.
If you have questions about participating, please contact our Coordinator of Education & Outreach, Shelby Hearn, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
