This month’s Togetherness event will be held virtually, over Zoom. Registrants can choose to pick up a hot meal the day of the event - quantity is limited.

The Togetherness: QTBIPOC Gatherings are a collaboration between MESA and the Spectrum Center focusing on centering the experiences of Queer, Trans, Black, Indigenous, and Students of Color through sharing meals, discussions, and creating connections with people in the QTBIPOC community at UM and in the surrounding areas.

This event’s host will be Dominique Canning. Dominique (she/they) is a 6th year Ph.D. candidate in Linguistics with a focus on sociolinguistics and phonetics. Dominique identifies as aromantic asexual and agender, and is frequently conscious of how she and others use language to navigate through various social spaces as queer people. She has previously researched the conversation around asexuality as a queer identity, as well as the use of language in the construction of Titus Andromedon's identity as a Black gay man in the Netflix show Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Her current research focuses on the use of language by queer Black people to construct and perform their identities as they move through the world.
