Join the LGBTQA Center for a special series of talks led by Pace Professor Dr. Tyrel Starks as part of our weekly Friday Discussion Series. Recent political changes have dramatically increased the visibility and (at least in some states) legal status of same-gender couples. At the same time, HIV prevention research is paying more attention to men in relationships with men as recent work has indicated that many, if not most, new HIV infections are transmitted between main partners. This discussion will explore participants’ thoughts and feelings about the importance of intimate relationships, what a healthy relationship looks like, and strategies people use to find, stay in, or end a relationship. Dr. Tyrel Starks joined the Pace faculty as an assistant professor of psychology this academic year. He teaches graduate courses in statistics and research methods as well as a practicum in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy. Dr. Starks is a licensed clinical psychologist. His research and clinical work for the past five years have focused on substance use and HIV prevention among gay and bisexual men. He has particularly focused on relationship factors associated with health risk behavior among men in same-gender relationships. He is a co-investigator and consultant on several studies funded by the National Institutes of Health, which aim to develop effective interventions to reduce substance use, prevent HIV, and/or improve the lives of people living with HIV.

Join the LGBTQA Center for a special series of talks led by Pace Professor Dr. Tyrel Starks as part of our weekly Friday Discussion Series. Being a gay or bisexual man in NYC can be an amazing experience. The wide array of social activities and the diverse population that makes up the city has the potential to be a freeing backdrop. It can also be an incredibly challenging place to meet people, make friends, and manage the logistics of life. Many adolescents and emerging adults confront the need to form opinions and make decisions around alcohol and other substance use. Certain social venues, expectations, and stressors may provide unique pressures and incentives to use alcohol and drugs for gay and bisexual men specifically. This discussion will explore participant’s thoughts and feelings about substance use, the relationship of substance use to the gay and bisexual male community in NYC, and the ways in which drugs and sexuality may become linked. Dr. Tyrel Starks joined the Pace faculty as an assistant professor of psychology this academic year. He teaches graduate courses in statistics and research methods as well as a practicum in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy. Dr. Starks is a licensed clinical psychologist.

"That's So Gay: Microaggressions and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Community"

April 4th @ 3:30PM, Lecture Hall South, One Pace Plaza, A Talk with Dr. Kevin Nadal

 On April 4th @ 3:30PM, the incredible, dynamic, and brilliant, Dr. Kevin Nadal will be coming to Pace University to discuss his new book: "That's So Gay: Microaggressions and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Community."  People who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT) experience subtle forms of discrimination, also known as microaggressions. Microaggressions are commonplace interactions that occur in a wide variety of social settings, including school or the workplace, among friends and family, and even among other LGBT people. These accumulated experiences are associated with feelings of victimization, suicidal thinking, and higher rates of substance abuse, depression, and other health problems among members of the LGBT community. In this book, Kevin Nadal provides a thought-provoking review of the literature on discrimination and microaggressions toward LGBT people. The generous use of case examples makes the book ideal for gender studies courses and discussion groups. Each case is followed by analysis of the elements involved in microaggressions and discussion questions for the reader to reflect upon.Read more about Kevin here and mark your CALENDARS!!! http://thefilam.net/archives/9953

Beyond the struggle to create a supportive environment for gay and lesbian students and teachers at the school, this is the story of a community wrestling with the very definition of pluralism and diversity in a Jewish context. What emerges is a potent story of Jewish pluralism and a community navigating the cross-currents of Jewish tradition and social change.

World's Aids Day

Saturday Dec. 1st

More than 90,000 people are currently living with HIV in the UK and globally an estimated 33.3 million people have HIV. More than 25 million people between 1981 and 2007 have died from the virus, making it one of the most destructive pandemics in history. Today, many scientific advances have been made in HIV treatment, there are laws to protect people living with HIV and we understand so much more about the condition. But despite this, people do not know the facts about how to protect themselves and others from HIV, and stigma and discrimination remain a reality for many people living with HIV. World AIDS Day is important as it reminds the public and Government that HIV has not gone away – there is still a vital need to raise money, increase awareness, fight prejudice and improve education. World AIDS Day is an opportunity for you to learn the facts about HIV and put your knowledge into action. If you understand how HIV is transmitted, how it can be prevented, and the reality of living with HIV today - you can use this knowledge to take care of your own health and the health of others, and ensure you treat everyone living with HIV fairly, and with respect and understanding. Click here to find out the facts. You can also show your support for people living with HIV on World AIDS Day by wearing a red ribbon, the international symbol of HIV awareness.  World AIDS Day is also a great opportunity to raise money for NAT (National AIDS Trust) and show your support for people living with HIV. If you feel inspired to hold an event, bake sale or simply sell red ribbons, click here to get started. If you'd like to see what other events are taking place — click here and find out more.

Telling Gender Stories: Parents, Physicians and the Transgender Child

Tuesday, February 28th, @3:30PM, ROOM TBA. A discussion on gender with Tey Meadow, Princeton Society Fellow. Popular news media, physicians, politicians, and parents are all talking about transgender children. They are puzzling out what makes some small minority of very young boys and girls depart, sometimes radically, from the type of gender behaviors other children seem to engage in naturally and automatically. They are describing and explaining and analyzing which children are actually transgender, which will turn out to be gay or lesbian adults, and what the proper individual and institutional responses to childhood gender nonconformity should be. They are wondering aloud whether transgender children represent the eradication of gender as we know it, or continued capitulation to patriarchal notions of gender difference. The greater availability of medical technologies that suspend and forestall puberty in transgender children render these discussions ever more consequential, and lead to an intensified focus on predicting just who individual children will become as adults. In this talk, based on an ethnographic investigation of the transgender child, I examine the work done by parents and physicians to manage the uncertainties of gender, of childhood and of this unique historical moment. For more information e-mail: lgbtqacenter@pace.edu.
