Queer happenings on campus and just about everywhere else!

Hello again everyone,

We have a Facebook page now! Go over there and like us at www.facebook.com/uwgbpridecenter.com!

Also, soon, our hours will be changing in the center. It’s just a matter of getting all the people that we have that were interested in having hours here together and finally hammering out a schedule. For right now, the hours that I posted in the post before this one still stand.

Some updates on events on UWGB’s campus:

SAGA, the Sexuality and Gender Alliance here on campus, has gotten a group together to head off to MBLGTACC 2012 (http://www.mblgtacc2012.org/) this weekend (2/10-2/12) in Ames, Iowa. If you’re interested in joining the group and going to the conference next year, bring your fundraising ideas to the meetings! They will be at OrgSmorg February 8th, 11-2 PM in the Phoenix Rooms with more info on meeting dates and times, and will have a sign up sheet for those interested in receiving emails from SAGA.

SAGA is also putting together a Burlesque/Drag Show for February! Here’s the Facebook page with all the info: http://www.facebook.com/uwgbpridecenter?sk=wall#!/events/215105325242598/

On February 27, Dr. Christine Smith and LGBTQ center intern Miranda Seitz will be facilitating a showing of Paris is Burning in the Christie Theater at 6PM for the Black History Month series at UWGB.

Jennie Livingston’s Paris is Burning chronicles the queer people of color underclass in New York City in the early ‘80s. Livingston provides a rare look into the history of Madonna’s “voguing,” the American AIDS epidemic of the ‘80s, and what queer Brown and Black youth did to stay together and alive in the communities that shunned them. Discussion to follow the documentary. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paris_Is_Burning_(film)

 

So far, that’s all we have for campus events for the month of February. There will be another post for March, and also, give us some comments either here or on Facebook on what you’d like to see from the center in the years to come.

Thanks and have a wonderful rest of the week!
