A Beautiful Day in the Gayborhood

September 1, 10am- 1:30pm

Hosted by the Molly Pearson, Treasurer of the Sexuality and Gender Alliance

Steven Brawley, the founder of the St. Louis LGBT History Project, will lead the group on a walking tour through the Central West End. We will discuss historic spots of LGBTQ significance, including the first church in the City to openly accept LGBTQ community members, a trans-owned independent bookstore, and more. Of particular relevance to WUSTL is the original site where Masters and Johnson conducted their groundbreaking research on sexuality and sexual behaviors, pushing WUSTL to the forefront of sexuality studies. Over lunch, we will discuss current opportunities to get involved and volunteer with local LGBTQ organizations.  

This excursion will be available for up to 25 students.

Physical Requirements: Must be able to walk or use a wheelchair outside on city sidewalks for an hour and a half.
