LGBTQIA+ people have had long, complex histories in the US healthcare system. From mismanagement of the AIDS epidemic to barriers to accessing care, from pathologizing identities to abusive "conversion therapy" practices, LGBTQIA+ people have experienced a wide range of problematic and harmful practices in seeking routine and necessary care. However, this is only part of the story - join us as LGBTQIA+ community members engage in dialogue around healing, in/visibility, and moving from surviving to thriving.
Moderated by Dr. Joe Ungco and introducing featured artist, Ari Campanella. Fred Hutch Panelists include:
Led by the Fred Hutch Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, the Public Art and Community Dialogue program provides an opportunity for employees and the broader community to be in dialogue about community solidarity and our pursuit of equity in research and healthcare. This program fosters ongoing dialogues with marginalized and oppressed communities that inform our commitment to inclusion, and how we represent that commitment in visual form.
Selected artists will develop public art expressions for Fred Hutch banners and flags that will be informed by community dialogues. These images will reflect the themes, emotions, expressions, history, culture, and aspirations of the affinity communities and the commitments of Fred Hutch to deepen our anti-racist and inclusive efforts in scientific excellence.
