'Pride From the Past' comes to Rainbow Center

Four LGBTQ+ alumni and one current Ph.D. student spoke at the University of Connecticut about their gender and sexuality experiences during their time at the university and how their identities affect their lives today.

The talk took place at the Rainbow Center and consisted of about an hour of pre-written, open-form questions delivered to the five panelists by a Rainbow Center staff member, followed by a brief opportunity from the audience to ask questions.

Each panelist gave their personal response to every question, delving into what it was like to be out (or in, in some cases) and how their identities shaped their post-scholastic work opportunities.
