Speakers Bureau

We are not taking requests for the Speakers Bureau program or trainings at this time! Please stay tuned.

The Speakers Bureau educates the campus about sexual orientation, and gender identity and expression through panel discussions in classes, residence halls, and other university settings. Members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and allied community who have received training for this purpose enter into these discussions prepared to disseminate accurate information, to answer questions that students, staff and faculty may have about the realities of LGBTQ+ lives, and to introduce the heterosexual, gender normative majority to visible members and allies of this mostly invisible minority.

Join the Speakers Bureau

All LGBTQ+ and allied people are invited to become members of the Speakers Bureau. The best way is to enroll in LGBT 350 (please note that LGBT 200, ENGL 265 or CMLT 291, and permission of the program are prerequisites). You may also become a volunteer.


Below are two videos interviewing students who took LGBT 350!
