Join the University of Hartford as we celebrate 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 a.m.–noon

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?
