Final Week of LGBT History Month Events

The final week of LGBT History Month, presented by the Office of Campus Life and GLBT Services, is underway at IIT and this is your last chance to check out one of the 17 total events that occurred all month long. The following are the final events scheduled for this week:

(A)sexual Documentary Screening
Monday, October 27, 7 p.m., McCormick Tribune Campus Center Auditorium
Sponsor: GLBT Services and Campus Life
Facing a sex obsessed culture, a mountain of stereotypes and misconceptions, and a lack of social or scientific research, asexuals – people who experience no sexual attraction – struggle to claim their identity. Through candid interviews and confessions from members of the asexual community, the documentary challenges existing notions of sexuality and provides a look into a marginalized group striving to have their voice heard.

Queer Sex Ed
Wednesday, October 29, 5 p.m., Wishnick Hall, Room 116
Sponsor: Student Health and Wellness Center
Do you feel like your high school sex ed class didn’t answer your questions? This presentation will cover information on sex and sexuality for gender and sexual minorities or anyone else that might still have questions. A nurse practitioner and a therapist will answer your questions and provide resources on a number of topics including how to have safe sex regardless of your sexual or gender identity, consensual non-monogamy, alternative sexuality practices, and more.

Students will have the option of staying anonymous by writing down their questions for the presenters to answer.

This event reflects the values expressed in IIT’s Diversity Statement and is intended to promote diversity at IIT.
