Join Greg R. Baird (LGBTQ lecturer, educator, storyteller, and social activist) for this interactive session in which he hosts an hour of reconnecting LGBTQ students, allies, and advisors through conversation and Q&A on what do you do now that your LGBTQA connection on campus has gone remote. How do I rediscover my community & support that I had on campus? How can I get involved with the LGBTQ community during this pandemic and still build those relationships with my organization? What are some fun activities we can do during the school year?
- A 60-minute inclusive, interactive program + audience Q & A
- The virtual gathering will engage LGBTQA students to feel motivated, supported, and find creative ways to not feel isolated
- The Zoom experience will allow a feeling of community and connection that has been lost during the COVID-19 pandemic

- How to celebrate the LGBTQ community through activities and educational projects. Make your own online event and share your pride year-round!
