MACOMB, IL – Members of the Western Illinois University community are invited to attend the 17th annual Big Picture Picnic Friday, Sept. 10 hosted by the WIU LGBT*QA Resource Center. The Big Picture Picnic is held each year as an opportunity for community building among the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, asexual and allies within the campus community.

Facial coverings are required by all participants. The picnic will feature "grab and go" items to ensure pandemic-related protocols are followed.

The picnic will begin at 4:30 p.m. on the Multicultural Center lawn, with the formal picture being taken promptly at 5 p.m. (individuals interested in taking part in the Big Picture should be there no later than 4:50 p.m.). All members and allies of the LGBT*QA community, including family and friends, are invited to take part in the photograph.

The LGBT*QA Resource Center advises Unity, the student organization for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, and asexual (LGBT*QA) community on the Macomb campus, hosts several events each year to raise awareness.
