UH LGBTQ Resource Center: Red Dinner 2019
May 18, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Coming out as your authentic self is a journey for every person. For some it’s a moment of joy and celebration, but for too many UH students, there are unresolved questions and issues. What are the consequences? How will my friends and family react? What happens if I get cut off financially? Every year, students request funding from the University through the UH LGBTQ Resource Center to help them offset the financial crisis brought on by coming out to their families. But funding for these students is desperately thin, and too many face the struggle of choosing between their education and homelessness.
YOU CAN HELP!
Join us in providing financial solutions to UH students who are facing these impossible situations. No one should lose their opportunity for an education because they come out as their true self. Red Dinner is the annual fundraising gala for the University of Houston LGBTQ Alumni Association benefiting UH students who have been financially affected as a result of their sexual orientation, or gender identity or expression. The funds raised at the Red Dinner directly help reduce the economic impact to UH LGBTQ students whose families terminate financial support when they “come out” as their authentic persons.
