Tongues Untied

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.
