UNB and STU host first-ever Queer Research Day

Faculty and students from the University of New Brunswick and St. Thomas University are teaming up to host the first ever Queer Research Day.

The one-day conference on Friday is designed to provide an opportunity for faculty and students to share their LGBTQ+ research and creative work within a supportive environment.

Among the two keynote speakers is Dr. Lynne Gouliquer, who will speak on the treatment of gay and lesbian soldiers in Canada.

UNB is also flying the transgender flag to demonstrate its commitment to creating an open and supportive learning and working environment.

Friday's event coincides with International Transgender Day of Visibility.

The event happens in Tilley Hall Room 5 at UNB Fredericton's campus from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
