Upcoming Events!

Hello Everyone!

I hope everyone is doing well as they have either taken or will be taking their midterms during this time.

We have many events approaching in these last two weeks of LGBT History Month!

(1) Tuesday, October 21, 2008 - Gender Benders - VC 3-215 from 12:40 to 2:20
On Tuesday, we will be holding our third LGBT History Month Event. We will be watching an episode of Sundance's Transgeneration, with a following discussion on transgenderism and transsexualism among college students and the issues that arise for these students. Movie Snacks will be served!

(2) Wednesday, October 22, 2008 - Freak Fest Committee Meeting - 12:40 to 2:00 - Location TBA
On Wednesday, we will be holding a meeting to discuss Freak Fest and different things that we need help with during the night of the party. This is great opportunity for members to get directly involved with our events through helping out during the party and also contributing ideas that will make the party a great success.

(3) Thursday, October 23, 2008 - Costume Rally for Freak Fest - VC 2nd Floor Lobby - All Day
Come and help promote our last LGBT History Month Event: Freak Fest. If you can, this'll be a great opportunity for you to show off a little preview of the costume that you will be wearing to Freak Fest. We need help handing out flyers for the event by the escalators in the 2nd Floor Lobby of the Vertical Campus. Any amount of time that you are able to provide will be greatly appreciated and noted.

That's So Gay!

Hello Everyone!

On Tuesday, October 7th, we will be holding the first event of LGBT History Month, titled "That's So Gay!"  The event will be held from 12:40 to 2:20 in VC 3-215 and refreshments will be served.

At the event, we will performing skits that will demonstrate the use of controversial words, such as "GAY," "FAGGOT," "DYKE," "QUEER," "FAG HAG," etc.  We will also be discussing the appropriate times that these words can be used and what causes these words to be taboo.

So definitely come out (NO HOMO...) and check the event out as we explore our everyday speech.

We hope to see you there!
