Take a look below for a little bit of an insight into what one of the participants experienced during the weekend.
"This was a phenomenal eye-opening opportunity to be involved in. Being at the symposium was a very interesting experience getting the opportunity to engage in a wide range of platforms for exploring ideas surrounding "Queerness" including performance, workshops, presentations, and interactive discussions.
Before engaging in the Symposium, I had a very general idea of what Queer was and meant. By the end of the weekend, I had a much more open and but strangely enough, a more undefined understanding of what this term meant. I also found myself slightly more confused, but in a positive and intrigued or inquisitive manner.
After the end of the symposium, I felt like I had learned a lot but also that I was more curious about many different ideas that came up that I never really explored in much depth before.
I think what made the event so rich and colorful was that all of the contributors had something so different to bring and share.
