Speak Your Truth: A Queer History of UCF

Speak Your Truth

Speak Your Truth: A Queer History of UCF is an archival project exploring the history of the queer experience at the University of Central Florida.

In your own words, and in your preferred format, we want to know what you have experienced as a member of the queer community at UCF. Your experience may have been (or still be) good, bad, ugly, or somewhere in between. The important thing is it is your experience in your own words/images.


The kickoff event for Speak Your Truth is an open mic in library room 223 on Wednesday, April, 18, 2018, from 12:00 pm – 1:15 pm.
