News and updates:
Our Candyland-themed Pride Prom has come and gone in a flutter of candy wrappers. Thanks to everyone who helped make it happen!
The last education piece of the year, Queer Careers, will be held during our regular meeting time on Wednesday, April 10th. We're bringing in guest speakers to talk about being out (or closeted) at work, disclosure and your rights, and the local job climate for LGBT employees, followed by a workshop to create or improve your resume.
Elections are April 17th. Be there! Good luck on exams, and have a great summer.
