Diversity Week Was Cool

Diversity Week Was Cool

Arguably the Queerest Tea Party to Date

Diversity Week is an annual campaign by OUSA Queer Support and student volunteers to increase visibility and awareness of sexuality and gender diversity, and provides a platform for experts and students to educate each other on issues that the LGBTQIA+ community faces. 

The week started with the Queerest Tea Party in the main common room, attended by over 60 students, and was followed by sex seminars, quizzes, human libraries, and other educational and social events for queer students and allies alike. One student, Matthew Schep, said that this year showcased a “solid core” of events, with room for other student groups to get involved in the future. 

Another student, Tanya Findlater, said that her favourite event was the Queerest Quiz Night by default, since her team “Paula Benefit” came first. The first place prize was $100 cash. A sure incentive for anyone to mark next year’s quiz in their calendar.
