Galerstein Gender Center


The Galerstein Gender Center provides learning opportunities on LGBT+ and gender-related topics. Our presentations are intersectional and promote awareness of the impact social and cultural constructions of gender, as well as systems of privilege and oppression, have on communities and individual experiences. They also challenge participants to engage in LGBT+ and gender-related allyship.
