LGBTQ+ and YOU: Creating Safe and Positive Environments for LGBTQ+ Students and Alumni
June 21, 2022 @ 7:00 pm
Please join us for a virtual presentation: “LGBTQ+ and YOU: Creating Safe and Positive Environments for LGBTQ+ Students and Alumni” co-sponsored by the Stadium Scholarship and Circle K Alumni Societies.
Our presenter is Shawn “Spike” Smith (he/him/his). Shawn is the Chair of the Pennsylvania Kiwanis District Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (J.E.D.I.) Committee and a member of the Kiwanis International Committee for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. We will cover topics including a history of LGBTQ rights in America and compare them to other parts of the world, the current state of LGTBQ students in the US, an attempt to make sense of terminology and gender norms and making your society a safe zone.
Spike has presented his workshop “LGBTQ and YOU” to Kiwanians and Circle K members both in the US and around the world (thanks to zoom) and has presented at the Kiwanis International Convention in Walt Disney World, where he advocated for the inclusion of the words “including sexual orientation and gender identity” to the non-discrimination policy adopted by Kiwanis International in June of 2019.
