Intersections of Queer Symposium

Intersections of Queer Symposium has been postponed until May. For those of you who were interested, please keep posted on the University of Alberta Pride Week Facebook page for the new date. 



The Intersections of Queer Symposium (IQS) is an attempt to create spaces for critical engagement with the complexities of LGBTQ2S+ experiences, bodies, identities and communities. Based on a structural engagement with the intersections of queer identity, our goal is to support a series of workshops, panel discussions, and facilitated spaces that share knowledge and engage collaborative learning around issues of race, class, ability, gender, age, mental health, spirituality, ethnicity, Indigeneity, and citizenship in relation to queerness.
