Out for Lunch Series 2023-2024

The Out for Lunch Series aims to create space on campus for education and community building centered on the lives and experiences of LGBTQIA+ individuals. Each month, we invite all students, faculty, and staff (LGBTQIA+ identified and those who support this community) to get together in-person or virtually and engage in conversation around a topic or issue within the LGBTQIA+ community.


The Out for Lunch Series are hosted in the Taylor Center for Equity and Inclusion Lounge (BC 111). These sessions are small group conversations with some prompting questions based on the designated topic (unless we have a guest speaker). Even if you aren’t able to stay for the whole time, we still welcome you to join for as much as you are able.

Please join us on Thursday, April 25, 2024 @ 11:30 AM- 12:30 PM.
