Intersectionality is the study of intersecting identities and related systems of oppression, domination, or discrimination. Intersectional Events aim to foster identity development among communities regarding race, gender, and sexuality. We are dedicated to uplifting the voices of marginalized individuals within our campus community.

Intersectional events is committed to helping students explore and understand their unique and whole selves by providing a variety of events, activities, and mentoring. Each year we host the Queer Film Festival—a multicultural, multiethnic festival showcasing LGBTQ+ artistry in film. We are currently seeking suggestions for films to screen at the 26th annual Queer Film Festival and for inspirational speakers to invite to campus. We'd love to hear your thoughts! Submit your suggestions on our OrgSync or Facebook pages.

Goals

Our goals for the 2017–2018 academic year include:
