How can stories from BIPOC, LGBTQIA2S+ sexual violence survivors at public universities help us to advocate for their rights and dismantle harmful stereotypes?

Every survivor of sexual abuse has a story to tell. Set up in 2019 at the University of Texas at San Antonio by queer Black students, The #ChangeRapeCulture movement works to champion the national conversation about rape culture at American universities.

Advocating for Queer and BIPOC Survivors of Rape at Public Universities documents the stories of BIPOC, LGBTQIA2S+ sexual violence survivors and offers theoretical groundings, model strategies, and practical solutions to aid understanding of rape culture at public universities, and advocate for survivors’ rights.

Student-led and survivor centred, this book is ideal reading for students of Queer and LGBT+ Studies, Gender Studies, Education Studies, Social Work, and Rhetoric, as well as student activists and university administrators.
