GLBT Stress Workshop

Posted By on Fri, Sep 4, 2009 at 9:26 AM

Being part of a class of people who aren't granted equal rights can really weigh on one's mind, especially for LGBT folks who spend much of their free time fighting for marriage, non-discrimination, and hate crimes legislation. Having efforts shot down time and time again can lead to adverse effects on mental and physical health. So can having existing rights — such as adoption — attacked year after year in the state legislature.

University of Memphis professors Sharon Horne and Heidi Levitt have been studying how LGBT folks cope with the effects of anti-LGBT amendments and policies. They'll share that research on Saturday, Sept. 5 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Memphis Gay & Lesbian Community Center (892 S. Cooper).
