Catchup, Current Events, and Upcoming Events!

To our loving Queer and Queer Friendly Community:

A big THANK YOU for those of you who attended the Date-a-Queer Auction! And a special thank you to those who had bidded [especially on me :) ]. It was hilarious, and a great amount of fun! We made over $400, a portion of which was shared with Ally Association.

Outoberfest T-shirts! T-shirts are $10, and proceeds will be to benefit Pride Lafayette and Purdue Queer Student Union. We're selling all week in the QRC (STEW G-20). There will be officers available to sell shirts from 4:30-6pm Tuesday through Friday, and also from 1:30-4pm on Wednesday and Friday. Other times as officers are available!

Twice this week Purdue University played "host" to evangelist speaker Brother Jed Smock. The Purdue Queer Student Union made an appearance to demonstrate that Purdue has other views. We passed out many fliers, calendars, key chains, and even sold T shirts for Outober Fest while we were out there. A big thank you for the support from the greater Purdue community! We raised over $100 in donations!

Onto exciting upcoming events!! Walleyball will be on Wednesday October 1, from 7-9 in the RSC (Recreational Sports Center). Bring your competitive side! Also, Politics 101 will be on Thursday, October 2 at 6pm in LWSN 1142. We'll speak about LGBT issues in the upcoming race, and help people register.

Your friendly neighborhood queer librarian,
Jessica Lee :)
