LGBTQing a City

History / Heritage - Lecture/Discussion

Wednesday, October 2, 2019
7:00 PM-8:30 PM

Each year since 2014, the Human Rights Campaign has awarded Worcester a perfect score for being an LGBTQ+ inclusive city. This assessment is based largely on legal and employment protections, and Worcester should be proud of this ranking. In a community conversation moderated by Professor Stephanie Yuhl, we will explore what additional concrete initiatives Worcester civic leaders and community members might pursue to enhance the lives of LGBTQ+ residents. How might the needs, hopes, and aspirations of the citys LGBTQ+ community enhance Worcesters recently released 10-year Cultural Plan? Panelists include LGBTQ+ leaders from neighboring cities Providence and Boston, as well as Worcester City leadership. We expect lively audience engagement.
