Season 3:Queer Corner - Exploring Gender Expression in Higher Education

Michelle Boettcher published on

In this podcast episode, Kim Carter and Gina Mariano have a conversation with special guest Ciera Durden, Associate Director for Multicultural Community Development within the Gantt Multicultural Center at Clemson University. The conversation stems around gender expression especially in the queer community as it relates to student interaction and the feeling of belonging on campus. This podcast goes beyond the terms of "gender" and "sexuality" to look at the nuances of being queer on a college campus both as a professional staff or faculty member and as a student.
