Pride Week

I hope everyone had a great time at Gayla on Saturday--we had tons of people come and it seemed like everyone had an amazing time (the mess you guys left afterward sure hinted at that!). Hopefully it will be a WashU tradition from now on. In case you didn't know, the Gayla was the kickoff for our annual Pride Week. Here's what we have going on:

1) "Discovery" w/ Professor Leslie Brown: Tuesday, April 18th @ 8PM in Women's Building 300. Join Leslie Brown, WashU professor of history and African-American studies, for a discussion about race and GLBT issues. Professor Brown has spoken at Pride events in the past, and is an excellent lecturer and scholar. Her presentation on Tuesday will be a fitting follow-up to the joint ABS-Safe Zones-Pride Alliance meeting we had earlier this month. I hope you can join us!

2) Open Ally Workshop hosted by Safe Zones: Wednesday, April 19th from 7-10PM in Women's Building 300. Be educated on GLBT issues and earn one of those nifty placards upon graduation from the workshop. Even if you identify as G, L, B, or T, the workshop will be a mind-opening experience.

3) Brokeback Mountain Screening with CS40: Thursday, April 20th @ 8PM in Ursa's. Stop studying and relax with friends while watching this amazing, critically-aclaimed film. Free food provided!

4) glbtqiaBBQ: Friday, April 21st from 11-1PM in Bowles Plaza: Eat BBQ. Be proud. Converse with prospective students about life at WashU. Best of all: all the food is FREE! We'll also be giving out free Frisbees, so there is no reason not to come--bring friends! Co-sponsored with the Office of Admissions.
