Every year, the LGBT Resource Center plans and implements programs that are aimed at increasing awareness of historically under-represented identities and experiences within our community. Intersex Awareness programs for the academic year 2012-2013 are being planned by Sheri Atkinson and elizabeth krause. Feel free to contact either Sheri (email@example.com) or elizabeth (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
The LGBT Resource Center library has an assortment of books and films in our library with more information about intersex identities and experiences, as well as a resource binder with more information on how to be an ally to the intersex community.
