Queering Academia

As a way to connect our ally community, we began to hold monthly Ally Lunches in March 2009.

These brown-bag lunches provide the opportunity for queer allies from all parts of campus to come together, meet each other and learn about or discuss a topic relevant to the queer community at Brandeis.

We invite students (undergraduate and graduate), staff and faculty from all areas of campus to join us at these monthly events.

Fall 2011 Lunches

Allied for the Holidays!

Thursday, December 8th
Noon to 1 p.m.
Intercultural Center Lounge

Join us for a discussion of going home queer for the holidays! As allies we will look at what it means to go home for the holidays--out or not--and create some strategies for supporting our LGBTQ identified students over the break. LGBTQ identified staff can bring their personal experience and some tips that they use. All identities welcome! Students, faculty, and staff are invited!

Upcoming Lunch Dates:

  • February 2nd, 12 to 1
  • March 1st, 12 to 1
  • April  5th, 12 to 1

These dates are tentative and are subject to change.
