Tongues Untied is a space by and for People of Color who identify as LGBTQIA and/or Same-Gender-Loving. Named after the famous documentary "Tongues Untied" by Marlon Riggs & Essex Hemphill, the group serves to connect students, staff, faculty and the Twin Cities community by holding discussion groups that focus on how race, sexuality and gender impact our lived experiences. This program is designed to enhance and center the experiences of queer indigenous people and people of color.
Tongues Untied serves the needs of our growing community by:
- Providing social and educational gatherings for U of M students
- Hosting discussions and panels for local public school Gay-Straight Alliances upon request
- Connecting with local community organizations or color such as The Exchange, Twin Cities Black Pride, and the MiniBall Scene
