So I saw a Sex in the City commercial on TBS last night.
It was Carrie saying, "I don't think bisexuality really exists. I think it's just a layover on the way to gaytown." And then it was like "TBS. Really Funny." or something like that.
So, what exactly goes down at these QWIIG meetings? Are they going to be on Tuesdays at 6 this quarter? I feel like I should come hang out with ya'll, because it seems like it would be fun. Am I wrong!?
Let me know.
Hey, Meeting at 4pm on Monday- topic?? facillitator??
Meeting on Tuesday (at 6pm), shall we go to the ave for coffee (or some sort of non caffeinated beverage)?
what does everyone think?
Here are some general ideas for QWIIG discuussion topics... pleas elaborate and throw in your own ideas!
--Bush won...what now?
--are we reprsented in the media?
--how should we react to anti-queer articles (e.g. articles by Erika Monges in The Daily)?
--improving inequalities in queer women's health care
--polyamory v. monogomy
--the "smallness" of the queer community
--Queer women and queer men-same situation?
--the queer community and other minority groups
--What if a teacher/TA is making homophobic comments?
--programming for queer women-What do we want?
--Do we feel safe on campus?
The QWIIG facilitators are gonna try to make meeting a bit more organized and fun. (Yeehaw!)
Any suggestions of meeting topics or how you'd like meetings to go?
