Planting Roots

Event Details

Date & Time:

September 7, 2018
5:00 pm to 7:00 pm

Planting Roots is a welcome event for LGBTTTIQQ and MOGAI communities and allies.

The event includes live entertainment with refreshments and light snacks.

Come out and meet people from the community and get to know McMaster.

Why this event?

Sometimes students in LGBTTTIQQ and MOGAI communities feel isolated or have fewer opportunities to meet and connect with other queer, gender-diverse, and sexually-diverse folks. This event is to facilitate such connections.

The theme of "Planting Roots" was selected for this inaugural meet-and-greet since this is a time when students, staff, and faculty are starting the new school year or turning a new 'leaf' in their academic careers. It's an opportunity to grow as a collective as well as individually.
