|LVC Freedom Week Celebrates 20 Years March 10-15
Lebanon Valley College’s Office of Multicultural Affairs and Freedom Rings student organization are co-sponsoring the 20th year of Freedom Week on campus March 10-15. Freedom Week is filled with activities that promote lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) awareness.
The week’s schedule is as follows:
Mon., Mar. 10
- Rainbow Run, 9 p.m., Social Quad
Tue., Mar. 11
- Suicide Awareness Day
- "Jim in Bold" screening, 7 p.m., Chapel 101
Wed., Mar. 12
"Beyond Binaries: Identity and Sexual Orientation" explores the landscape of sexual orientation and how we “map” sexual orientation. No two people are exactly alike, so how do we assign labels to our complicated and unique experiences? Ochs will anonymously survey and analyze where we fall on the sexuality continuum and how we label. The program will explore different experiences of identity; the complexity of attraction and more.
- "Beyond Binaries: Identity and Sexual Orientation" presentation by Robyn Ochs, 7 p.m., Chapel 101
Ochs is a national speaker, award-winning activist, and the editor of the 42-country anthology, "Getting Bi: Voices of Bisexuals Around the World and the Bi Women" quarterly. Her writings have been published in numerous bi, women’s studies, multicultural, and LGBTQ anthologies.
