Ally Cats discussion today on LGBTQIA+ allyship

Submitted by Spectrum Center

The Kansas State University Sexuality and Gender Alliance, or SAGA, will host its annual Ally Cats event at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 7, in the Cottonwood Room at the K-State Student Union.

Ally Cats is an organized panel discussion focusing on how students, faculty and staff of K-State can become better allies to the LGBTQIA+ community.

The panel will feature topics such as navigation of sexuality and gender identity in the classroom, developing skills to discuss sexuality and gender identity in majority identity spaces, and ways that community members can become active allies.

Have an LGBTQIA+ related question that you would like discussed by the panelists? Visit tinyurl.com/allycats23 to anonymously submit your question.

SAGA organizes this event as an informational outreach to the K-State community. Panelists will reflect on how allyship from peers, faculty and the campus community can help in creating an affirming environment for historically underrepresented or erased identities. The event will include a presentation on identities within the sexuality and gender identity spectrum and language associated with LGBTQ+ communities. The event will also feature small group discussion sessions for participants to have in-depth conversations on identity and how allies to the LGBTQ+ community can further educate themselves and advocate for the equity of all.
