SIU LGBTQ Resource Center hosts ‘Queersgiving’


CARBONDALE — Thanksgiving is coming up, which means eating too much food and trying our best to tiptoe around political conversations at the dinner table. For those of us with very boisterous families, it can be difficult to avoid.

This is The LGBTQ Resource Center at Southern Illinois University has set up a “Queersgiving.” The goal is to give LGBTQ people a positive Thanksgiving experience before heading home to potentially intolerant environments.

The event is potluck style, and some catering from Townsquare Market will be provided. There will likely be music and activities. All students, faculty, and community members are welcome to attend.
