LGBTQA Open Forum 2011

On Wednesday from 11:00-1:00 in the Student Center's Burr Oak Room, I had the pleasure of moderating an important event for the Peru State College community:  The LGBTQA Open Forum 2011.

 Organized by PRIDE--People Respecting  Individual Differences and Qualities--the event featured an excellent panel, including the college's Elaine Hanson and Kriti Nies.

In addition, Dr. Pat Tetreault, Assistant Director of the  LGBTQA Center at UNL and Pastor Tom Emmett, an ordained minister in the Metropolitan Community Churches, joined the group.

As those in attendance learned, LGBTQA refers to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered, Questioning, and Allied.

If you have questions about LGBTQA or PRIDE, contact Jacob Buss or Jane Henry.
