Quench: Queer Content at Lunch


Quench: Queer Content at Lunch

Join the LGBTQ+ Center for Quench: Queer Content @ Lunch - a monthly program where you bring your lunch, we will provide content and dessert! Each session will feature a deeper-dive educational experience regarding various aspects of LGBTQ experiences and action steps for building more inclusive communities for individuals of all sexual orientations and gender identities. It's a great opportunity to Quench your thirst for knowledge and build community with others.
All members of the WFU community are invited to participate. Prior completion of LGBTQ specific educational offerings is encouraged but not required.
Can't be there right at 12:00 or need to step out a few minutes early? No problem at all!
