College Celebrates Martin Luther King Day by Having 'Gender Identity Teach-In'
With Martin Luther King Day approaching, many folks are preparing to honor the man's legacy. Though, this university thinks the traditional methods of remembrance aren't good enough. So, they're honoring Dr. King by having a "gender identity teach-in." Yeah, not joking.
Illinois Wesleyan University is planning to mark Martin Luther King, Jr. day with a gender identity "teach-in."
The Jan. 21 event at the United Methodist Church-affiliated university will feature two speakers. Charlene Carruthers, whose website describes her as a "black, queer feminist community organizer," will deliver the keynote for the famed civil rights activist and former Baptist minister. LGBT activist Dave Bentlin, president of Prairie Pride Coalition, is also slated to speak.
The afternoon-long event will conclude with a "session on gender identity and human rights" which will be led by the IWU Pride Alliance. The theme of the event, according to a university news release, is gender and social justice.

Speaking of Dr. King:
