Queer/Trans People in Advertising

Wed March 26th, 1:30-3:30pm

MBC 2290

What are the trends of queer and trans folks in advertising? What kinds of representations do queer and trans folks get in advertising? How do marketers sell to queer and trans consumers? What kind of effects does this have on queer and trans people? The Trans and Gender Diversity Project Advisory Committee presents a lecture and dialogue on queer and trans representation in advertising that seeks to explore answers to these questions and more. This event is part of Out on Campus’s Queer Awareness Week programming.

It is open to staff, faculty, and students of SFU at no cost. Additional workshops can be provided for your group at a small cost.

Oral Queer Histories on Campus

Fri Mar 28th, 12:00-3:00pm

MBC 2290 and 2292

Ever wondered what SFU was like before us?

Join us for interviews with some OOCers from days past and possibly a couple who’ve been with us for a long time including days present. So far the SFU Queer History Project has focused on the preservation of documents, but this event shifts the focus to the preservation of spoken understandings not necessarily reflected in the documents that get left behind. Bring some of your own questions for submission or email them to queerhistory@sfss.ca
