We are thrilled to invite you to participate in a conversation between LGBTQIA+ identified Scholars in residence and alumni within the Rhodes community. Through an interactive, intergenerational discussion, this reunion event will bring us together to socialise and get to know each other, to celebrate the voices and accomplishments of queer Rhodes scholars while also identifying key challenges our community has faced and still faces today. Our hope is to strengthen our engagement with one another as well as to spark dialogue about global queer issues, e.g., equality and solidarity in the light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement.
This event will begin with a group of speakers from different Rhodes class years sharing informally their views and experiences during their Oxford years and beyond, followed by small-group discussion. If you want to volunteer to share your experience in advance, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you can join us in kicking off the 2021 LGBTQIA+ Digital Series on Thursday 25 February 2021 from 5:00pm to 6:30pm GMT.
