Kat Blaque to Speak for Trans Day of Liberation
On Thursday, March 29, the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Resource Center welcomes Kat Blaque for a keynote lecture in honor of Trans Day of Liberation. Her lecture will begin at 7 p.m. in Maxwell Auditorium.
Blaque is a young, Black, trans woman and social justice educator. She believes “speaking about her growth and self-acceptance is vital in a world where trans people aren’t seen as valid and their possibilities are often limited.” Blaque will share a vision of self-love, community support and positive change during the keynote.
Trans Day of Liberation was launched by the LGBT Resource Center to affirm and celebrate trans communities and experiences. The celebration shifts a focus from Trans Day of Remembrance, which honors and remembers the lives of trans people who have been murdered, to liberation with Trans Day of Liberation.
The lecture is free and open to the public. Tickets are not required. American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation will be provided.
For questions, email the LGBT Resource Center or call 315.443.3983.
