This year’s workshop, led by Dr. Philip Gleissner, will allow educators to learn about the history and accomplishments of the LGBTQ+ community in Eastern Europe and Eurasia. Additionally, this workshop will educate our participants on the struggles that this community faces in these regions, how LGBTQ+ issues and rights are handled there and what LGBTQ+ activists are doing to create a safe place for the members of their community to exist in.
