Life After Lambda last night

Thanks to each of our speakers who took the time to come out to share their experiences with us last night! It was wonderful to get to hear stories about navigating post-college life as out and queer both in the workforce and in finding community.

Lambda Cookout in a Month

Hello all, we hope you’re all having a wonderful summer! We’ve got a month now before school starts up again, which means a month until the Lambda Cookout! It’ll be out on Reed Quad on August 18th at 5:30; put it on your calendar and get excited to see new and returning faces!

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!

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.

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!
