Come Out!

I'd like to thank everyone for the GREAT turnout at GLBTQIA Awareness Week events this year--it's the best this campus has ever had! We aren't done yet, though. There are many (seriously--many) events planned for the semester, some of which will presently be presented to you in convenient list format:

Wednesday, Oct. 19th @ 9:15PM on the S40 Swamp: "Come Out To The Sukkah" with Pride Alliance and Keshet, WashU's Jewish GLBTQIA student group. Free dessert and hot chocolate will be provided as you do arts & crafts, mingle, pick up buttons and ribbons, and--of course--have tons of fun!

Wednesday, Oct. 26th: "National Intersex Awareness Day". Details are still pending, but there will be an event that evening at 8PM in Women's Building Suite 300 relating to that mysterious "I" in the GLBTQIA alphabet soup. Expect a showing of a short film/documentary followed by a facilitated discussion.

Friday, Nov. 18th @ 6PM in the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum (Steinberg Auditorium): "Transworks: Transsexual Images by Loren Cameron". Loren Cameron's photographs have become beautiful icons of a burgeoning transgender movement. His book, Body Alchemy: Transsexual Portraits (1996), has been regarded as groundbreaking. In his presentation he will show some of his newest and latest work, relate his experience as a transsexual photographer, and discuss the lives of the people he photographs. The presentation will be followed by a book-signing. See http://www.lorencameron.com/ for more information.

TBA: Gayla Committee Meeting. Help organize WashU's 2nd annual GLBTQIA formal! Last year over 200 people attended, and it was a smashing success. The event will not be until late next semester (April-ish), but we must start organizing things immediately. I will lead the first meeting, but the Gayla will not be an event run by Pride Alliance--we want people from all over the WashU community. If you are interested in being on the planning committee e-mail pride@restech.wustl.edu ASAP so that we can organize a meeting time within the next few weeks. I am looking for approximately 10-12 individuals, especially people who helped out last year! Time commitment: expect to meet once or twice a month until the event.

WashU Political Review is looking for people to submit articles or essays regarding GLBTQIA issues. If you are interested in submitting something or have an idea for an article e-nail pride@restech.wustl.edu

The Significance of Memeorandum
One of the glories of the 'net is the ability to get all the news you want instantly.
Well, this blog and post have struck a special nerve that motivated me. Profound and interesting, and it has really got me thinking... What if many people were able to see this, would you mind? I could tell a friend or two, but only with your permission.

~ Thanks for making this blog, I'll bookmark and come again.
