Speakers Bureau is a gender and sexuality education program facilitated by LGBTSS. Speakers Bureau enhances the visibility of LGBTQIA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual, ally...) people at Iowa State. We use storytelling and open dialogue to challenge heterosexism, homophobia, transphobia, and sexism on campus and to showcase the diversity of LGBTQIA+ people’s lives and identities. Our panels reach thousands of students in classrooms, residence halls, student organizations every year!
Our panels are available to present to Iowa State classes, residence halls, greek organizations and other student organizations and groups, as well as university offices and departments. Each panel is facilitated by LGBTSS staff. Please complete the request form to request a panel for your event.
Panelists need to complete a training. Trainings will be held at the beginning of Fall and Spring semesters. For more information on training, please see guidelines for becoming a panelist.
