Pronouns and More: Understanding Some Contemporary LGBTQIAP+ Issues

Wednesday, September 20, 2023
12:00 pm1:00 pm

Maybe you are well versed in pronouns or other LGBTQIAP+ issues, or maybe there are some questions that you want to understand but haven't yet had a venue to explore them. No matter your level of understanding, all are encouraged to join us for a conversation with Dr. Lain Mathers about pronouns and other contemporary issues related to LGBTQIAP+ life, and how such knowledge will be useful in your personal and professional life.

Dr. Lain Mathers is an Assistant Professor of Sociology and Affiliated Faculty in Gender Studies at ISU. Zir work focuses on dynamics of gender, sexualities, and religion in society, with a particular focus on LGBTQIAP+ populations. Specifically, much of their research centers the experiences of bisexual+ and transgender individuals, particularly how bi+ and trans people navigate and challenge inequalities in their daily lives. In zir free time, Dr. Mathers enjoys reading novels, hiking and gardening.
