The Gender Issues Centre is a centre for all Lakehead University students.

We initiate and support positive Feminist-Womanist action concerning gender, socio-economic status, ethnicity, religion, culture, family life, sexual orientation, gender identity and difference in physical or mental abilities.

Working from an anti-oppressive and feminist framework, this is a safe and inclusive place to meet new people, access resources, and get involved. We encourage communication, action, awareness, self-reflection and compassion.

“Movies for Mental Health”


February 9th from 5-7pm in UC 1017 (across from Security!)

Lakehead University is hosting an event called “Movies for Mental Health,” an interactive workshop run by a nonprofit called Art With Impact.
Through the use of the emotional power of short film, we will initiate dialogue with students on the topic of mental health. This peer-to-peer learning event consists of a facilitated discussion, three short films from Art With Impact’s library and a resource panel with campus and community services.

It’s back! This month’s “Let’s Talk about Good Sex” is focusing on sex toys.


Join us in The Study Coffeehouse at 6pm on Wednesday, February 10th for relaxed, discussion-driven conversation.

In choosing this month’s topic, we designed our presentation to encourage students to have a sense of respect for sexual diversity, to convey the importance of sexual communication in a relationship, and to enhance students’ appreciation of different sex toys. Students will be better equipped with knowledge about sex toy safety and care as well as knowledge about where they can purchase sex toys!
