TALK IT OUT AT TUESDAY TALKS

Ask questions, share your thoughts, explore ideas, find support and grow. Since 1998, we have hosted Tuesday Talks in our center each Tuesday at 5 p.m. Each week features a unique discussion group comprised of UCR students and facilitated by LGBT Resource Center staff. Topics and groups vary week-to-week. All are welcome to come.

PLEASE NOTE
  • The center will be closed on Tuesday evenings to all but those participating in Tuesday Talks.
  • Tuesday Talks are staff-facilitated discussion groups, not student-led organizations. For example, the QPOC Tuesday Talk group is not the same thing as the QPOC of UCR student organization.
  • Let’s Talk About Sex is the only Tuesday Talk you may attend for class credit.
Our Tuesday Talk discussion group rotation includes:

Fluidity

This group is for those who want to talk about the genderqueer, bisexual, pansexual, trangender, queer and questioning communities, as well as whether or not any labels connected to sexual orientation or gender identity are necessary.

Grrrl Talk

This group is for lesbian, bisexual, and questioning women and their allies.
