**PLEASE SHARE WIDELY** (and apologies for duplication)
The GLBT Round Table is looking for presenters for a panel at ALA Annual
titled *“Intersections and the Experience of LGBTQ Library Folks.”* Are
you part of the LGBTQIA/queer community? Do you hold multiple intersecting
identities? We would love to hear from you! Please send a short statement
(2 paragraphs) to aamoore at ucsd.edu describing yourself, place of study or
work, and what you can bring to the panel. We will choose four panelists
to present at ALA Annual. DEADLINE TO SUBMIT IS FRIDAY, MARCH 17.
*“Intersections and the Experience of LGBTQ Library Folks.” **Lesbian, gay,
bisexual, transgender, gender non-conforming and other queer folks in the
library world face a range of issues which often overlap with other forms
of oppression, including (but not limited to) gender, race, ethnicity,
ability, economic status and education level. Queer library folks with
multiple identities often struggle to find acceptance and belonging,
feeling excluded and invisible within an already marginalized community.
This panel will explore intersectionality—a concept coined by scholar
Kimberlé Crenshaw in the late 1980’s—and the ways that multiple forms of
oppression are interconnected and cannot be examined separately from each
other. The queer library folk featured will discuss how even though they
share an identity, each of their lived experiences is different. Attendees
will leave with strategies for building respect for difference, creating
open and accepting spaces for LGBTQ staff and library users, and
increasing acceptance of people with complex identities.*
