This virtual dinner and program honors the courage and spirit of Harvey Milk, whose activism set an example of the crucial connection between education and social change. Our goal is to raise awareness and provide scholarships for both LGBTQIA+ students at UW Oshkosh and LGBTQIA+ high school students in the Fox Valley who will be enrolling at one of the UW Oshkosh campuses.

Please turn on the subtitltes by clicking on CC in the bottom right corner of the video to see how the pronouns are spelt!
The LGBTQ+ Resource Center staff and interns are so often asked how to pronounce pronouns that we decided to make this video so you can hear nonbinary pronouns in action. We will be giving you one way to pronounce these pronouns, but know that some will pronounce them differently. Try to reflect back the pronoun pronunciation the person uses for themself.

Gavin Grimm grew up in Gloucester, VA, and is the plaintiff in a federal transgender rights lawsuit that was headed to the Supreme Court but got sent back to the lower courts and is still working its way through the judicial system.
Gavin came out as transgender during his sophomore year at Gloucester High School. With his principal’s permission, he used the boys’ restrooms at school for almost two months without any problems, but then a handful of parents went to the school board to complain about Gavin. The school board held a public meeting to talk about his body. It was humiliating and frightening to see one adult after another stand up and say hateful things about him. Then the school board voted to ban Gavin from using the boys’ restrooms at school. With the help of the American Civil Liberties Union, he sued his school.
His case worked its way up to the Supreme Court and was set to be argued in March 2017 but then the Supreme Court announced that it’s sending his case back to the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals to be reconsidered in light of the Departments of Justice and Education pulling back the previous administration’s Title IX guidance clarifying protections for transgender students. In 2019 he won his case in the lower court and that win was upheld at the Fourth Circuit. In the spring of 2021, the school district asked the Supreme Court to again consider Gavin’s case. He’s waiting to find out whether they will.
Trans Inclusion in Althetes
Multiple bills have been introduced in Wisconsin and across the nation to ban trans athletes, specifically trans girls and women, from competing in girls and women’s sports. Dr. Alicia Johnson, Director of the Women’s Center, has a scholarly background in gender and sport and shares about the related scholarship and policies on trans inclusion in athletics. Dr. Johnson debunks common myths and assumptions often cited in these bills and shares why it is necessary to promote trans inclusion, rather than exclusion or segregation, in athletics. Resources for further self-education are provided.
Queer and Trans individuals will discuss their experiences in the workplace–the good, the bad, and the ugly. Panelists are John Erickson, Kathleen Muskee, and Livia Rowell-Ortiz.
