Pre-Spring Break Update

First, a HUGE thanks to everyone that helped plan the protest on Saturday--it turned out really well, and I think we showed the community that WashU is active and willing to put effort into things outside our often-cited bubble. It was amazing to see all of you allies and newcomers attend the protest; I hope you come to more events in coming semesters, too. Check out the two articles in Student Life for pictures and details: Protest at 'ex-gay' conference brings out students, community - News and Love Needs No Cure: A peaceful protest - News. Pride is taking a brief hiatus for the next few weeks, but we will be back in full force the week following spring break. In the meantime, here are a few items that might be of interest to you:

1.) This Saturday, March 4th at 2:30 pm at Hillel (across the street from the architecture school, which is near Brookings), Keshet, the GLBTQ Jewish group, is bringing transgender, queer, and Jewish performance artist and playwright S. Bear Bergman in to perform "Clearly Marked", a play about overlapping identities and blurring labels. Following the show, there will be a Q&A discussion with Bear. Admission is FREE! If you missed "Clearly Marked" when it came to St. Louis last school year, here's another chance for you to catch it. Don't miss it! You can learn more about the show "Clearly Marked" here: http://www.sbearbergman.com/theater/clearlymarked.html

2.) Office hours have begun! Stop by Women's Building 300 during the day to chat with exec members, hang out, do homework, or borrow items from our qLibrary. We hope to have a complete online list of all of our library items in the near future. Office hours are as follows:

  • Monday: 12:00 - 5:00PM
  • Tuesday: 2:30 - 3:30PM
  • Wednesday: 11:00 - 1:00PM; 2:00 - 5:00PM
  • Thursday: 2:30 - 3:30PM
  • Friday: 12:00 - 1:00PM

3.) If you think we have been doing a good job this semester, nominate us (or any other fine organization on campus, for that matter) for OSA's Excellence in Leadership Awards! Nomination forms can be found here: http://osa.wustl.edu/leadership/awards/. Not that I'm begging, or anything....
