NASPA Article Lists Pitfalls To Avoid In LGBTQ+ Programming

Ted Lewis, Associate Director for LGBTQ Campus Life at The University of Richmond and Chris Parcell, Director of LGBTQI Life at Vanderbilt University co-wrote an article for The National Association of Student Personal Administrators’ (NASPA) blog on things that are problematic in LGBTQ+ programming.

Topics include respectability politics, not making connections between the ivory tower and the surrounding community, and more.

Good  points for consideration for student affairs professionals, teachers, community members and others who would like to serve in this work.

I'm a Social Justice Educator and Aspiring Humanitarian who is interested in conflict resolution, improving intergroup relations, and building more equitable and inclusive communities. "Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian" is my blog, where I write about issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice. By exploring social identities through written word, film & video, and other forms of media, I hope to continue to expand and enrich conversations about social issues that face our society, and to find ways to take social action while encouraging others to do so as well in their own ways.
