Your LGBTQI Story Matters: Giving a voice to your personal, diverse LGBTQI Story
Are you tired of the same heterosexist, cissexist, binary loving, transphobic, monocultured stories in movies and television? Do you long for a story that more resembles your own?
Join us for a special FREE workshop sponsored by the LGBT Specialization for LGBTQI Antioch students, alumni, supporters and allies because... YOUR LGBTQI STORY MATTERS! Join in for a day dedicated to giving a voice to your personal, diverse LGBTQI story presented by Kris Alvarado, MFT Trainee.
The workshop is on: Saturday November 7th, 2015 from 12-5pm At Antioch University Los Angeles in Room A 1010.
Snacks will be provided, as will parking. This is a workshop project that is also in the works, so there will be time at the end of the day for a special focus group to assist in improving the workshop itself and provide feedback for the workshop presenter. Hope to see a lot of your smiling faces there!
