Emerging Leader Fellow Cameron McConkey spoke to The Temple News about Philadelphia FIGHT’s LGBTQ health care services as a participant in Temple’s 12th annual National Coming Out Week festival.
The Office of Institutional Diversity, Equity, Advocacy and Leadership is hosting their 12th annual National Coming Out Week celebration this year with the theme of “Love is the Message.”
On Monday, the office started out the week with its annual festival, which was held virtually on Zoom and open to the public. The festival drew 60 attendees and offered LGBTQ resources on campus and in Philadelphia. Visitors could virtually meet with representatives from seventeen organizations and departments from Temple and around the city.
“These resources allow students, staff, and faculty to engage with various organizations that foster gender and sexuality inclusion,” said Nu’Rodney Prad, the director of student engagement at IDEAL. “These are great assets that further affirms identity but also provides a platform to further visibility and advocacy.”
