SPEAK (LGBTQ+)

SPEAK (Sexuality, Pride, and Equality Alliance at King's) is a student-led initiative that provides a safe and comfortable space for LGBTQ+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning) identifying students to support one another. SPEAK warmly and confidentially welcomes new members and has opportunities for students to be both members and leaders. It is a place to create relationships, listen, share, and experience the stories of others. SPEAK meets once a month in an undisclosed location and is a student-only event (no faculty or staff attend SPEAK meetings).

For information, contact the general SPEAK email at speak.kingsu@gmail.com or talk to SPEAK staff advisor Tim Janewski (Tim.Janewski@kingsu.ca) or Vice-President of Student Life and Dean of Students Michael Ferber (michael.ferber@kingsu.ca).

Meetings (every third Monday of the month, 12 - 1 p.m.)

2017: September 18  October 16 November 20 (Transgender Day of Remembrance)
2018: January 15 February 12 March 19

 

SPEAK OUT
SPEAK OUT is the peer education arm of SPEAK and, as such, is an all-inclusive safe space for students, staff and faculty. SPEAK Out is open to students who identify as LGBTQ+ and straight/cisgender allies. We regularly meet to hear speakers, go on field trips, and support each other as we talk about issues related to sexual orientation, gender identity, and expression. SPEAK Out hosts a variety of events throughout the year to foster discussion and help educate King's campus on issues facing LGBTQ+ identifying persons.

2017: September 25 October 23 November 6 & 27 December 4
