Tongues Untied

In it's third year of existence at the U of M, Tongues Untied is a space by and for people of color who identify as GLBTQ and/or same-gender-loving.  Based on 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.


Students at podiumTongues 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 Trans Youth Support Network, Twin Cities Black Pride, and the MinneBall Scene

For our beloved allies, we do appreciate your voices and commitment to dismantling racism and homophobia; however, please note this is a space created for GLBTQ and/or same-gender-loving people of color.
