|The theme of this year’s GLBT History Month is “Resistance Through Existence,” which will center the voices that are often marginalized and celebrate the myriad of identities within the GLBT community.
The GLBT Center will kick off GLBT History Month on Monday, October 2, 2017 with a workshop on Internalized Oppression from 3:00-5:00 p.m. in Talley 3222. Internalized oppression refers to the ways that individuals unconsciously learn, accept and reinforce ideas and attitudes that perpetuate inequity and oppression; this includes learned attitudes and actions related to internalized dominance and internalized subordination. This two-hour workshop is open to NC State undergraduates, graduate students, staff, faculty and alumni as well as interested members of the local community. The workshop will help participants learn to recognize the everyday, unchallenged assumptions we all make, to understand the impact of our assumptions on our own and others’ lived experiences and to increase our ability to interrupt these dominant narratives that serve to perpetuate inequity and oppression.
