Dear North and GenEQ Community,
There are changes coming our way! GenEQ is going through staffing reformulation in the coming months. It is bittersweet to share this news. As part of a larger college reorganization, GenEQ’s manager position is discontinued.
Despite the coming changes, GenEQ will continue to be a anchor program for North students, faculty and employees. At this time, we would like to acknowledge the persistent efforts of North’s students, faculty, and staff who have supported and continue to support GenEQ (formerly the Women’s Center). Your efforts make a difference for our campus community. It takes community to build community.

A beautiful, raw and compassionate memoir about identity, love, and understanding.
The son of a Baptist pastor and deeply embedded in church life in small-town Arkansas, as a young man Garrard Conley was terrified and conflicted about his sexuality. When Garrard was a nineteen-year-old college student, he was outed to his parents, and was forced to make a life-changing decision: either agree to attend a church-supported conversion therapy program or risk losing family, friends and the God he prayed to every day of his life.
By confronting his buried past and the burden of a life lived in shadow, Garrard traces the complex relationships among family, faith, and community. At times heart-breaking, at times triumphant, this memoir is a testament to love that survives despite all odds.
Soon to be a major motion picture starring Russell Crowe, Nicole Kidman and Lucas Hedges.

At the age of 18, artist Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) was nearly killed in a bus accident. Althought she was never fully recovered, she spent two years healing and passed much of that time creating self-portraits. Today, Frida Kahlo is famous for her painting, particularly the self-portraits that illustrated her pride in her Mexican heritage and identity.
