Town Hall Meeting Update

We did it! Thanks to the Lambda members who came out to vote, we have now finally added Asexuality to our constitution! Additionally, we have also updated how we define allies here at Lambda Alliance. If you’re interested, check out our updated constitution!

Also special thanks to Jon Hurst, Josh Fletcher, and T.W. Cauthen for coming out to our meeting and facilitating the discussion to generate ideas on how to improve UGA for queer-identified individuals on this campus!

Welcome Back Meeting!

Hello all!

We hope that everyone’s first week back was as stress-free as possible and that everyone’s semester looks promising! To get Lambda started for the semester, our first official meeting will be on Monday, January 13th in our usual location, Tate 137! We want to say welcome to everyone: hello to newcomers and welcome back to familiar faces. In this laid-back social, we’ll be providing snacks and games and hope you’ll stop in to join us!

Cooking with Queers and Homecoming!

Get ready for a busy week! On Monday, November 4th, we will have our special Cooking with Queers meeting! Visit Tate room 137 at 5:30 to see a guest speaker from Mama’s Boy teach us LGBTQA* folk how to whip up something delicious.

Later on in the week, Lambda Alliance and the rest of the LGBT Resource Center will be in the UGA Homecoming Parade! The theme is “There’s No Place Like Homecoming,” so keep your eyes peeled for some glamorous, queered out Wizard of Oz characters! The parade is November 8th, and will begin at 6 p.m. downtown. If you want to get involved, talk to one of the board members or email us. :)

Happy Halloween!

In order to celebrate Halloween like the fantastic adult college students we are, Lambda Alliance will be hosting a Halloween themed meeting! Come dressed up (no, seriously, wear a costume), decorate a pumpkin, gorge yourself on candy, and relish the splendid magic of the night. Tate 137, 5:30. See you there!

AIDS Walk and Sexual Health Meeting

Can’t wait to see all of you tomorrow during the AIDS Walk! The Annual Athens AIDS Walk, sponsored by the UGA College of Public Health, will be from 9:00 a.m.-12:00p.m. The 3-mile awareness walk will start and end at Tate Plaza on the University of Georgia campus. The walk will be a fun, interactive, and inspiring event for all ages.¬†You can register online at http://www.kintera.org/faf/home/default.asp?ievent=1072525. To walk with the Lambda folks, sign up under GLOBES-Pride Team.

Also, Lambda Alliance’s next body meeting will be focused on sexual health with the fabulous guest speaker Katy Janousek. Katy is the sexual health specialist and student development coordinator at the University Health Center. Her areas of specialization include healthy sexual decision making, LGBTQ concerns, and pregnancy/STI prevention, so needless to say, she’s well-equipped to answer any questions you may have! Come out to Tate 137 on Monday, October 21st, 5:30 p.m. to check her out!

Lambda Elections

The time has come! Don your nice clothes! Write your fantastic speeches! This coming Monday is Lambda’s Election, so come on out to have a voice in our new board!

To vote, you must be a member of Lambda Alliance (so have gone to at least three Lambda events). To run, you or someone else must nominate you and have it seconded by someone else.

People running will read a short speech explaining why they feel they would suit the position. Nice clothes are encouraged. Nice smiles are mandatory.

Tate 137, 5:30, October 14th! See you there!
