Co-sponsored with the International Relations Form

Izabela Filipiak is a well-known author in Poland with 9 books to her
credit. She is a prominent spokesperson nationally for the LGBT
community of her country. Additionally, she has been a public figure,
with a
list of press commentaries and essays written on subjects of
contemporary
politics, society and culture.

In this forum she is will discuss the unanticipated political
ramifications of European Union membership for the Polish women's

LGBT rights. She will also address her views on the future prospects

LGBT
rights making the topic especially timely.
