UHart Celebrates LGBTQ+ History Month
Join the University of Hartford as we celebrates the vast history of LGBTQ+ communities across campus and globally. This featured virtual talk will focus on LGBTQ+ awareness and is presented by the President's Office on Diversity and Community Engagement, the Office of Student Engagement and Inclusion, and the Student Government Association.
Tuesday, October 27
11:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.
Kim Adamski, HIV Prevention Specialist at the Hartford Gay & Lesbian Health Collective, will discuss LGBTQ+ cultural competence. What do different LGBTQ+ labels mean? What is the proper use of pronouns? What is the difference between sex and gender? How do healthcare disparities disproportionately impact black LGBTQ+ communities, and how this is affected by COVID-19?
