GLBTA panels are effective in introducing students to people with varying ideas and identities about sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression. Students on panels are volunteers and speak on an array of issues ranging from family experiences, curriculum, marriage, sex, religion, adoption, drag, and some historical information from a personal perspective. If you are interested in a GLBTA Panel for classrooms or departments, send in requests at least two weeks in advance. Contact Katie Batterman at batt0093@d.umn.edu.
