Upcoming Safe Zone Events

Safe Zone is excited to share we have numerous upcoming events. Below you can find information on each of them.

Safe Zone will be hosting a table on Wednesday, October 11 in the Cedric Rucker University Center lobby from 11-2pm in recognition of National Coming Out Day and Pronouns Day. Please come out and say “hi!” We always have fun swag to give out!

We are hosting our Faculty/Staff ally training on Wednesday, September 27 from 3-5pm. During that workshop, participants will learn about and discuss ways to be stronger allies and advocates for the LGBTQ+ community. At the end of the workshop, participants will have the option of signing our ally form and receiving our ally rainbow eagle sticker. Registration is required to participate. Please email to register.

Our most popular event every semester is our Faculty/Staff book club. We will be reading “Sissy: A Coming-of-Gender Story” by Jacob Tobia ( this semester. We ask that participants just read as much of the book as possible and attend a single session where we informally discuss the book. It’s always a good time! The discussion of the book will happen at Red Dragon Brewery on Wednesday, October 11 from 4:00-5:30pm. We picked this date because it is National Coming Out Day. Sitting around chatting about this fantastic book with fun colleagues seemed like a perfect way to honor that day of awareness and celebration. Registration is required to participate. Please email to register. I also have a few free books that I will give out on a first come first serve basis for people who RSVP.
