Where Are Queer People Welcome?

6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Coos History Museum, Sprague Gallery

A majority of Americans now accept gay and lesbian relationships, but the queer population is made up of diverse communities and experiences. Are all queer people accepted, tolerated, and embraced everywhere? Where are we made to feel welcome? Where do we feel unwelcome and unsafe? How do race, language, gender identity, family structure, faith, where we work, and where we live shape how we are seen, welcomed, and accepted? Join facilitator Jill Winsor in a discussion that explores how the complexity of the queer community intersects with the spaces and communities that surround us.

Oregon Humanities Conversation Project brings Oregonians together to talk—across differences, beliefs, and backgrounds—about important issues and ideas.
