This fund supports LGBTQ+ students who want to attend a queer-focused event at UWEC or in the surrounding area. Its purpose is to encourage the participation of low-income LGBTQ+ students in events that are affirming and inclusive. Policing of “gender-appropriate” clothing and the lack of a Wisconsin state statute protecting gender identity in employment has led to widespread discrimination against LGBTQ+ in the job market, resulting in many LGBTQ+ students facing severe economic hardships, furthering their marginalization. This fund can be used for event tickets and transportation costs.
