The Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Center will host two Safe Zone workshops in room 320 B/C at the Mandel School on Thursday, July 24. The sessions are open to the entire campus community, including staff, faculty and students. The first session is from 9 a.m. to noon, and the second is from 1 to 4 p.m.
Those wishing to participate in the workshops can RSVP by emailing email@example.com to indicate which session they will attend and whether they are a student, staff or faculty member. More information about the workshops is available at case.edu/lgbt/safezone/.
Participants are required to attend one session to become a Safe Zone member. The Safe Zone Program is a network of volunteers committed to creating a community of respect and dignity for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning students, staff and faculty. Safe Zone makes it possible to easily identify individuals dedicated to an environment where all are free to thrive academically, professionally and personally.
The CWRU Daily has profiled Mandel School student Valentino Zullo in one of their popular “5 Questions” features. A second-year MSSA student, Valentino is in the Direct Practice concentration specializing in Adult Mental Health, and he combines his passion for social work with his passion for comics.
On Aug. 2, Zullo will bring those passions together to present “Out of the Closet and into the Costume: Gay Comix” at the Cleveland Public Library’s main branch—scheduled to coincide with the 2014 Gay Games in Cleveland. Zullo will discuss a history of the medium from a Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) perspective. In addition, Zullo will be a guest on “The Sound of Applause” on WCPN-FM 90.3 on July 30 at 2 p.m.
This fall, Zullo will continue to discuss comics at the Cleveland Public Library in a series called, “Comics and the Clinic,” to examine how comics can inform clinical practice. He will also present monthly discussions at the Cleveland Psychoanalytic Center on films in theaters from a psychoanalytic perspective.
