This poster reflects research conducted as part of a course project designed to give students experience in the research process. Course: UDI 404



Expressing oneself is one of the core values of the LGBTQ+ community, as to combat the years the community has spent with their voices oppressed and silenced. College specifically is a time for students to not only come to understand themselves, but to also find how they communicate their identities to the rest of the world-- and this applies even more strongly to LGBQT+ students. Our Voices Matter highlights the voices of LGBTQ+-identifying students and their narratives, giving those students a chance to freely express themselves. We have collected anonymously-submitted writings and artworks from LGBTQ+ students at UD. These will be shared by volunteer members of the LGBTQ+ community. This is the fourth annual Our Voices Matter event, and the second year that it will be facilitated as a part of the Stander Symposium.
