LGBTQ History Month Features Film Series, Keynote

Fairfield University is celebrating LGBTQ History Month (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer/Questioning) with speakers, a panel discussion, a film series, and more now through November 1. All events are free and open to the public.

The following are some of the month's highlights.

On Thursday, October 10, Chris Stedman, author of Faitheist: How an Atheist Found Common Ground with the Religious, will deliver the month’s keynote speech. Stedman is assistant Humanist chaplain at Harvard University and emeritus managing director of state of formation at the Journal of Inter-Religious Dialogue. He founded the blog NonProphet Status and is a frequent contributor to Salon, CNN, MSNBC, The Advocate, USA Today, and The Washington Post. The Huffington Post named his work as one of the Top 11 Religion Stories of 2011 and dubbed him one of the top interfaith activists on Twitter. His talk begins at 7 p.m. in the Aloysius P. Kelley, S.J. Center Presentation Room.

“Out in the Workplace: An LGBTQ Alumni Group Panel” takes place Wednesday, October 16 at 7 p.m. in Room 110A of the Dolan School of Business. In this interactive panel, alumni will address students about being openly gay in the workplace and offer strategies for career success while embracing diversity.

A film series, which began last week, continues with I Do at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, October 23 and Cloudburst at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, October 30. Both will be shown in the Baron Campus Center, Room 200. The final film, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, will be screened on Friday, November 1, at midnight in Gonzaga Auditorium.
