A Pride Panel: Queer Perspectives At and After University

For Pride Week 2021, TBLGAY (Trans Bisexual Lesbian Gay Asexual at York) and the Alumni Engagement team* present a Table Talk, ‘Queer Perspectives At and After University’. Join us for a compelling virtual panel discussion and Q&A on the topic of intersectional queer and trans perspectives during life at university and after graduation, with candid feedback on what it means to enter academic and professional spaces and retain queerness. Hear from the insights of former TBLGAY members, York alumni and current York undergraduates on how current students can set themselves up for success at and after university!
