Telling the Story of Queer History
featuring author Zaylore Stout
Please join us for November's Quorum Young Professionals event on Tuesday, November 10th from 5:30-7:30pm in collaboration with the PFund Foundation.
Why does understanding our history matter? While many people have heard about some events in LGBTQ history (such as the Stonewall Riots or the activism, political career, and assassination of Harvey Milk in San Francisco), many significant people and events in the history of the LGBTQ rights movement are often underrepresented in books and curricula. History is essential not only in terms of representing and validating marginalized people, but also in giving a lens through which to understand — and survive in — the world. History can be a guide: It is the lens through which each of us makes sense of our world. Knowing our personal histories impacts how we show up in the workplace and other settings, how we view ourselves in relation to the world around us, and how we can use information from the past to positively impact the future.
Please join us in this highly interactive and engaging session led by author Zaylore Stout to move beyond the textbooks and explore how our histories can shape our futures!
