Description

The Office of LGBTQA Affairs at Wright State University offers three core educational programs. One of those educational programs we call Spectrum Sessions. A spectrums session is a presentation designed to be customizable for a range of audiences and topics. Spectrum Sessions are developed to give different audiences a bevity of skills and knowledge within a short amount of time. For the Breaking Silences Conference, we have created a Spectrum Session entitled: Queer & Crip Justice- 5 Skills for creating more intersectional & inclusive communities. During this session, we will first gain a deeper understanding of the complexities of sex assigned at birth, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, and romantic orientation. From there we will discuss the intersections between Queer & Trans communities and Crip communities. We will end with teaching 5 skills for creating more Queer & Trans and Crip Inclusive spaces and communities. This will be an interactive session led by the Director for the Office of LGBTQA Affairs who will encourage participants to actively discuss and share throughout, as we are all experts of our own experiences and identities.
