April 9 at 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

The panel series, “We Need To Talk: Conversations on Racism for a More Resilient Las Vegas,” returns April 9 for a discussion on being queer in Las Vegas.

The event will focus on how anti-trans, anti-drag and book banning legislation throughout the nation has impacted life in Las Vegas. A diverse panel of experts will also share their experiences on LGBTQ+ life and discuss issues the queer community is facing.

Kevin Sebastian, teaching and learning librarian for online education in UNLV Libraries, will moderate the discussion. Panelists include:

Antioco Carrillo (โ€˜00 & โ€˜03, Social Work), executive director, Aid for AIDS of Nevada
Laura Hernandez, Director of Youth and Senior Programs, The LGBTQIA+ Center of Southern Nevada
AJ Huth, director of public affairs & civic engagement, The LGBTQIA+ Center of Southern Nevada
Dennis McBride (โ€˜77 & โ€˜82), Las Vegas queer historian
Lukas Serrano, HIV patient manager, The LGBTQIA+ Center of Southern Nevada
