Transgender Visibility Week is hard on us all, especially our LGBTQIA+ kin. 2020 has proved to be no different. LGBTQIA+ people live and navigate pandemics their entire lives – the notion of existence is a resilient act for many LGBTQIA+ communities.
As we seek to move on from 2020, the heartache and lived realities for queer and trans+ people will continue on. “2020 has been the most violent year on record (since official tracking began in 2013) with at least 34 transgender or gender non-conforming people fatally shot or killed by other violent means, the vast majority of which were Black and Latinx transgender women. (All too often these stories go unreported — or misreported.) Statistically 91% of the 22 deaths in the U.S. last year were Black trans women, 81% were under the age of 30” (Rae Senarighi, 20).
This year, and always – we ask that fellow LGBTQIA+ communities, but especially, cisgender and straight communities learn to celebrate trans+ and gender non-conforming communities while we are alive! Specifically, ask yourself – what am I doing to dismantle systems of transphobia and white supremacy?
While we cant provide those answers – nor should it be the responsibility of trans+ communities – we can provide resources to take those steps – to put words into action!
LGBTQIA+ Student Services will also be hosting the following event this week:
The Realities & Revolution of Trans+ Athletes
Wed, Nov 18th 7 – 8:30 PM
Via Zoom – see campus calendar for details
Lastly, this year LGBTQIA+ Student Services is hosting a Give to the Max Fundraiser – Queer Student Resilience Campaign. These funds will go directly back into the pockets of LGBTQIA+ students at Augsburg, in the form of scholarships and emergency funds.
Please take a moment to watch our video, listen to our students, and take action.

Hi! My name is Bella and I am first year student here at Augsburg studying graphic design. I am currently trying to find personal care assistants to help me in my day to day life here on campus. This would include getting me ready for the day, helping me get set up for class and assisting me around campus. I am very flexible on hours and more help would be much appreciated. If you are a pre-med or nursing student, this is a great opportunity to get experience with patient care.
I really enjoy getting coffee, watching Netflix, drawing, and painting. I consider all my assistants as my friends and if you work for me, you are guaranteed a good time! If you are interested, please text me at: 612-345-2855 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope you will join!

The Minneapolis Moment is a one-minute play project attempting to continue dialogue rooted in the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis and the resulting uprisings in a time of pandemic and divisive federal elections. We’ll borrow the model of the Every 28 Hours Plays to create, select, and perform one-minute plays over Zoom or other video media to share with the Augsburg and Minneapolis communities.
The Minneapolis Moment will engage student, staff, and faculty in order to perform selected one-minute plays from the Every 28 Hours Plays and to write and perform new one-minute plays based on experiences since the murder of George Floyd. The goal is to facilitate critical dialogue and reflection by providing multiple viewpoints and multiple experiences.
The design of the project allows participants to start working in December 2020 and continue into the spring semester of 2021 with three or four performances building on each other and able to be broadcast virtually to be in alignment with essential health measures to protect against the pandemic. The idea is to have three or four performances with several one-minute plays and then ultimately to collect and edit them into one larger video. Participants can be involved in only one writing and performance cycle or in them all—it will be up to them. All Augsburg students, staff, and faculty will be welcome to participate.
