T2 Students Presenting Workshops at National Conference
Students from T2 will present six workshops February 10-12 at the Midwest Lesbian, Bisexual, Gay, Trans*, Ally College Conference (MBLGTACC) in Ames, Iowa. Jyler Donovan, Jake Eleazer, Emily Thomas, Dave Lingerfelt, Meghan Lampe, John Pachja, and Molly Eames all wrote workshop proposals that were accepted for MBLGTACC 2012 on topics ranging from LGBT military service members to transmasculinity.
This is the first year that students from the University of Louisville are presenting, according to member Jyler Donovan. “Our hope is that this will encourage more students to propose workshops in the future.”
MBLGTACC was first created in 1991 by students from Iowa State University and Drake University. The conference serves as a way for LGBTQA college students to network and learn about the community in a safe environment.
T2 was created in 2011 and focuses on the education and deconstruction of gender. According to its mission, “We exist to advocate for transgender rights. We exist to bring the Trans community together. We exist to be a voice.”
