FR206 - The Silent Minority: LGBTQ+ Voices in Architecture
June 7, 9:30am-11am | Location: Las Vegas Convention Center

Did you know that in 28 states LGBTQ+ architects can still legally be barred from living in the dwellings they design? Sexual orientation and gender identity are important components of AIA’s position statement on diversity and inclusion. Although the profession is making an effort to make equity happen, diversity efforts often fail to engage the LGBTQ+ community, let alone address their issues within the architecture profession. Panelists will share their personal experiences and engage the audience in a larger conversation about LGBTQ+ participation.
