A majority of Americans now accept gay and lesbian relationships, but the queer population is made up of a diversity of communities and experiences. Are all queer people accepted, tolerated, and embraced everywhere? Where are we made to feel welcome? Where do we feel unwelcome and unsafe? What does it mean to see your experience reflected in media? What does it mean when stories reflecting the queer experience are actively silenced?

Join facilitator Jill Winsor in a discussion that explores how the complexity of the queer community intersects with the spaces and communities that surround us.

This Conversation Project is made possible by the generous support of Oregon Humanities, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Oregon Cultural Trust, and The National Endowment for the Humanities Fund of The Library Foundation.
