    EIU Safe Zone 

    Created to address the concerns of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and ally community at Eastern Illinois University and the surrounding area, the SafeZone Project is a way to reach out to these students and welcome them in all areas of the EIU community. Safe Zones are areas on and around campus where supportive people provide information and work toward the elimination of myths, misconceptions, and stereotypes.

    Bisexual and Pansexual Awareness is a brownbag of the Safe Zone project to discuss the misconceptions, myths and stereotypes concerning Bisexual and Pansexual individuals. This session will also educate participants on the differences, intersectionality of Bisexual and Pansexual identities and reflections on members own experiences. Click here to register for this Safe Zone session.
