Hey Bearcats! TGIF!!!! We hope you all enjoyed this past chilly week.

To recap, if you haven't done so already, you can view your photo from our "What is Love?" Photo Campaign on our GLASS Facebook page, under the designated photo album. You can also view the VIDEO made by esteemed GLASS President Joshua J Altamirano, compiled of all of the photos here. What a beautiful success!

On Tuesday, T-Time returned. We enjoyed tea, coffee, and yummy cookies and brownies and sat in the cozy Resource Room (VC 3-241) together. Our discussion topic, "What is Gender?" proved to have many levels. The conversation flowed organically from the treatment of the Trans* community in foreign countries, to the importance of asking for someone's preferred gender pronouns upon meeting them, and then to how people experiences both sides of the typical gender binary. It was great to listen to each other and learn something new. We are already looking forward to our next T-Time!

We ask, "What's in a name?" No, we are not talking about that Capulet girl.

The Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Society is changing its name! Inclusivity of people of all gender identities, gender expressions and sexual orientations is our main priority and aim, especially at a famously
 diverse school like Baruch College.

Beyond that, GLASS's aim is to include the entire Baruch community to help us in the search of our new name! Please take two minutes out of your day to enter your idea into the attached Google Form. Let's get the conversation flowing. (Break the internet.)

We really appreciate it!

This week, we have a packed day on Thursday, Feb 26! During Club Hours, we are co-sponsoring the Vietnamese Student Association's event general meeting, #TBT, hosted by GLASS Events Coordinator Pong Muangchan! We'll be enjoying Vietnamese food and snacks that will throw you back! Cha cha slide down to VC 5-160.

Thursday evening, we are hosting our second Open Mic Night of the year!! Enjoy storytelling, poetry reading, and of course, live music! See you at 6 to 9PM in Room VC 2-125.
