All faculty, staff, students and community members are invited by the CPGC, the Office of Multi-cultural Affairs and the Student Activities Office for weekly, informal conversations about current events and happenings on campus, in our region and around the world. Tasty (and free!) lunch is provided. Fridays from 12:30pm-1:30pm in the CPGC Cafe.
The topic this week is Tolerating Difference: Understanding sexual orientation and gender identity in college athletics
Sexual orientation and gender identity have long been taboo subjects in the world of athletics. In recent years, issues of the LGBT community have gained more public interest in amateur and professional sports.
How are LGBT athletes viewed by society? What are our experiences with people whom we know to be LGBT student-athletes? What must be done to create a more tolerant environment in athletics?
