Please join us in celebrating our 3rd annual Transgender Awareness Week! **Transgender** Awareness Week is aimed at student education and consciousness of transgender communities and experiences. Through community gatherings, educational presentations, and performative art, we seek to create critical discussion about transgressing gender.

Throughout the week we will be tabling on the HUB lawn and passing out FREE T-SHIRTS! Please stop by one of our events, our tables, or the Q Center (450 Schmitz Hall) to get your free t-shirt!
