DiversiTea: Social

Join us to watch a webinar and have a discussion for Trans Visibility Week in the Diversity Center (SLB 22) on Thursday from 2 PM-4 PM. We will be watching, “Health Disparities, Stigma, and Terminology: Health Equity for Transgender and Gender Diverse Populations.” This will be an opportunity for students, faculty, and staff to learn about Transgender and gender-diverse health care, research, and demographics. There will be snacks and some refreshments as well!

Free HIV Testing

Free, discreet, rapid HIV testing on a walk-in basis from 2:30pm-4pm. No appointment is necessary. The test will be a quick prick of the finger. Results will be available within 15- 20 minutes of taking the test. It will be a discreet and private setting. ALL testing hours will be posted on UIS Connection. The testing site will be at the Gender and Sexuality Student Services lounge, within the Diversity Center at the Student Life Building, Suite 22. There are two ways to enter.

Binding 101: Receive a Free Binder and Learn How to Bind Safely

As a part of Trans* Visibility Week, members from The Phoenix Center will be coming to fit students looking for a chest binder. After taking your measurements, they will help you find a free and comfortable binder, and talk about methods to safely bind. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions one-on-one and confidentially.

Fluidity is a weekly support group where students across the LGBTQIA+ spectrum discuss topics relevant to their experiences including campus, community and interpersonal situations. Fluidity provides a safe and confidential space with peers for those exploring their sexual and/or gender identity. The group allows advocacy for its members and is a judgment-free zone. The door will be closed at 2:15pm, 15 minutes after the group begins.
