Awareness Week Approaches

Hey everyone! Awareness week and National Coming Out day is coming up soon during the week of Oct. 6th-10th. We are so excited to host a huge National Coming Out Day dance party (we have close to $2,000 for it) and we want to you to be involved in planning it.

Three events this week:

Tues. Sept. 23rd: Public Service Fair, LGBT Advocacy Open House, 6-7pm, DUC 2nd Floor Formal Lounge
Network with area LGBT focused organizations to find internships and jobs.

Weds Sept. 24th: Pride's 2nd GBM 8pm in Friedman
Come hang out, eat snacks and help plan Awareness week, National Coming Out Day Party and other events you all came up with at the first GBM.

Friday Sept. 26th-Saturday Sept. 27th: PROMO's Missouri Equality Conference in Kansas City
We have a great opportunity for you to attend PROMO's (a nonprofit LGBT advocacy group for MO) day long conference of training and workshops on topics pertaining to LGBT activism. Pride will pay your transportation, registration and hotel costs! Check out more info at We'll leave campus Friday evening and come back Saturday evening. If you'd like to attend respond to this e-mail by the end of Tuesday with your name and the earliest time you could leave on Friday the 26th.
This is really great if you'd like to become a better LGBT activist and bond with other Pride members.
