Southern Illinois University Carbondale is recognizing October as LGBTQ+ History Month with a wide variety of special events and activities.

LGBTQ+ Resource Center coordinator Angela Towne says more than 20 events are planned, all open to the public and many free.

She says one of the highlights of the month will be the “Body Image is a Social Justice Issue” workshop, 5-6:30 p.m. Oct. 11 at the John C. Guyon Auditorium at Morris Library.

Every Thursday, there will be a free Queer Cinema film from 3-6 p.m. in the Student Center Auditorium. After the showing of each film, a guest moderator will host a discussion.

The theme is ‘Celebrating Our Tenacity, Continuing Our Growth.’
