Upcoming Events

November 15
Gradpride Luncheon

All are welcome to our catered (probably pizza from epi) luncheon on November 15 from 12:30-2:00 in Leavey 327 (The Women’s Center adjacent to the LGBTQ Resource Center). Please RSVP by filling out the google survey indicating that you’re coming! That way we know how much food to order. In addition to engaging with each other, let’s talk about plans for next semester.

PS – all are welcome! Bring your friends.

November 20:
Transgender day of remembrance

Please join the DC Center for the Washington DC observance of the Transgender Day of Remembrance. This event takes place November 20th from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM at the Metropolitan Community Church (MCC) of Washington, 474 Ridge St. NW.

The Transgender Day of Remembrance commemorates those who have been killed due to anti-transgender hatred. The 1998 murder of Rita Hester, a Boston transgender woman, sparked the Remembering Our Dead web project and a San Francisco candlelight vigil in 1999. Rita Hester’s murder, like most anti-transgender murder cases, has yet to be solved.

Accessibility: ASL interpretation will be provided. The MCC Church is a wheel-chair accessible space. If you require other accommodations, please e-mail supportdesk@thedccenter.org

November 24:

The Trans Military Documentary Screen is hosted by Annapolis Pride. Please check out their facebook page for more information. The event will be at the Eastport Democratic Club, 525 State St, Annapolis Maryland on Sunday November 24, from 1pm to 4pm. If you’re interested in attending, sign up here so we can make arrangements together.
