LGBT STUDENT PANELS
A panel of LGBT-identified college students provides an interactive conversation about LGBT lives and issues. The panel usually includes 3 to 4 culturally-diverse students. A facilitator will lay down simple ground rules for the audience and introduce the panelists. Each panelist gives a brief personal vignette about themselves. Then audience members are invited to ask questions of the panelists.
No questions are off-limits, although panelists may choose to pass when answering. Common topics of conversation include family relations, coming out, religion, same-sex marriage, homophobia, dating and relationships, bisexuality, transgender issues, political concerns, and the local LGBT community.
A student panel provides a non-threatening way for the audience to learn about the real lives of LGBT people.
