ATL Pride and the Magic City AIDS Walk
We had a great and very discussion-heavy meeting last night where we discussed what it means to be an ally, how to be an ally, and where straight allies come into the picture. (Essentially we can all be allies of each other, we should always respect each other’s spaces, and we need and appreciate our straight allies very much!)
Magic City Aids Walk is this Sunday September 22nd at 4pm. We will leave from the Norton turnaround at 3:30, and everyone should be back on campus by 6:30. If you need a ride please email allies and let us know and we will try and make sure everyone who wants to go can go.This is a FREE EVENT and is always super special.
We’ve also begun taking sign ups for Atlanta Pride. Pride is Saturday and Sunday October 12-13. We will leave Saturday morning and return Sunday evening. Our advisor, Dr. Tim Smith, will be driving us there and back again. The trip is 35$ per person, and you’ll need to bring money for all meals except breakfast on Sunday.
To join us on this AMAZING trip you’ll need to contact firstname.lastname@example.org and email us your student number. Understand that there are NO REFUNDS. Deadline to sign up is October 1st but we have a limited number of spots, so please contact us ASAP.
Finally our first Allies Movie night is Wednesday September 25th at 7:30 in the screening room in the library. This event is co-sponsored by Allies and the BSC Subtitles Club. We will be watching “Shake it All About” (trailer). This is a lighthearted movie with LGBTQ themes. Please join us to watch and critique/discuss this film afterwards!
as always, follow us on facebook for more updates!
