Campus Launches New Rainbow Lunch Series

September 21, 2016

Balloon arch in the colors of the rainbow flag symbolizing LGBTQ+ pride adorns Scholars Lane. UC Merced has launched a new Rainbow Lunch Series for faculty and staff members and post docs who identify on the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer/questioning spectrum.

The goal of the series is to provide an opportunity for LGBTQ+ individuals to come together and build community and support. Attendees can bring their lunch and enjoy the company of their colleagues while fostering an inclusive and welcoming environment at UC Merced.

The first lunch occurred Sept. 15, and the next Rainbow lunch events are Oct. 19 and Nov. 17, from noon to 1 p.m.

The location of the lunches is shared with attendees when they RSVP. Use this link to register.

Those who are unable to attend but are interested in future LGBTQ+ events for faculty, staff, post docs and allies or joining the Chancellor’s Advisory Committee on Queer Issues and/or the LGBTQ+ Social Committee, please RSVP and provide your contact information. Email Angi Baxter for more information.
