LGBT History Month at Baruch

This year, Baruch College has chosen to officially recognize LGBT History Month in October for the first time ever!

We will be holding several events to celebrate this month in October.  The events are still undergoing planning, but here is a brief overview of what is to come in our events.

10/7/2008 - That's So Gay! - The words that people use and their effects.
10/15/2008 - Sí, Soy Gay - A discussion on how Latino Culture has had an influence on the lives of Latinos in the LGBT Community.
10/16/2008 - National Coming Out Day Information Table - 2nd Floor Lobby (VC)
10/21/2008 - Transgeneration - A screening of Transgeneration, a documentary about Transgender and Transsexual college students, followed by discussion.
10/30/2008 - FREAK FEST - The second annual Halloween Party at Baruch.  There will be a costume contest (and maybe a Drag Queen and King contest!).

We are trying to figure out whether or not it would be a good idea to have the Drag Queen and King contests.  Please comment on this post and let us know what you all think about this idea! :)

So keep checking back here for more updates!  If you have any comments or suggestions, please leave them in a comment here or email us!

Thanks and Best,
