The Out to Lunch Gender, Sexuality, and Community is a weekly academic lecture and discussion series with guest scholars and community activists from various disciplines examining a variety of topics related to gender identity, gender expression, and sexuality. Each semester offers a broad sampling of the areas.

Today's lecture is entitled, "Emotional Intelligence for Queer Individuals," and will be presented by Seth Wallace.

What is emotional intelligence, and why is it so important for queer people? This interactive discussion will offer reflections, tips for self-regulation, and essential knowledge for prioritizing the wellbeing of our community in the face of oppression and stigma.

Seth Wallace is an educator, consultant, and activist. He is currently completing his MSW, and provides training for mental and medical health providers on topics of gender identity. Seth works out of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence, Facebook, and the Yale LGBTQ Resource Center, where his work on the intersections of emotional intelligence and diversity education reaches students, teachers, and professionals nationwide.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their lunches.
