#EverydayPeople on RadioACTive, featuring the UoU's Transgender Healthcare Conference, Queer Spectra Arts Festival, and Armies of Enablers: Survivor Stories of Complicity--Betrayal in Sexual Assaults.

Tonight's lineup:

UoU Professor Amos Guiora returns to RadioACTive to talk about the themes in his latest book, Armies of Enablers: Survivor Stories of Complicity & Betrayal in Sexual Assaults

  • Sept. 10: Amos N. Guiora | Armies of Enablers, 6:00 p.m. online. Hosted by The King's English Bookshop: "This free, virtual event will take place on Crowdcast. Purchase Armies of Enablers from The King's English Bookshop and receive an autographed bookplate. *While supplies last* What do sexual assault survivors expect of the enabler-bystander? In this powerful book, Amos N. Guiora shares the stories of survivors to expose how individual and institutional enablers allow predators to perpetrate their crimes through silence and other failures to act. He then proposes legal, cultural, and social measures aimed at the enabler from the survivor’s perspective."

Queer Spectra Arts Festival, a safe space for artists who self-identify as LGBTQIA+ to showcase their works and engage audiences in conversation regarding art and queer identity. Robbins spoke with festival organizers Max Barnewitz, Aileen Norris and Alexandra Barbier. Click here for more on this year's festival, which will feature more than 20 artists, 2 online workshops, a keynote presentation, and live-streamed performances.

The University of Utah Transgender Health Program will hold a Virtual Mountain West Transgender Health Conference Sept. 17. Robbins explored the origins of the conference and its importance with conference founder Andy Rivera and Ariel Malan, Program Coordinator of the Transgender Health Program.
