As part of a Speaker Series, the Women and Gender Studies program at Northern Lights College is hosting a speaker to discuss LGBTQ issues.
Robert Bittner, a PhD student in the Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies program at Simon Fraser University, will give two lectures on Oct. 19 at 1:15 p.m. and 7 p.m. about identity, issues and topics affecting LGBTQ youth and adults. In the evening session, Bittner will talk about children and youth literature with LGBTQ themes that are good to have in libraries, as well as other non-classroom settings.
Bittner has a Bachelor's degree in English from SFU and a Master's in Children's Literature with a focus on queer sexualities, religion, and literature for young people. He has published articles on trans youth in literature, sex education, and sexuality and censorship in picture books.
The Speaker Series with Robert Bittner takes place in the atrium at the Fort St. John campus of Northern Lights College. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org
