December newsletter

First Friday Social: Friday November 30th 6:00-8:00 p.m

December’s First Friday social will be held on Friday, November 30th at The Wolf and Hound.  Come join us for a drink and some food before we enter exam season!  If you have joined us in the past you know there will be good people and conversation.  If you’re new, why not come out and meet some new grad students from all areas of the university?  Yes, we know that this Friday is technically not the first Friday of December, but since many people are busy or away next month, we thought we would get a head start.  Look for the area with the rainbow flag, or call Alexis at 778-847-0773 if you have trouble finding us.

A Christmas Carol in Gay Apparel – a play by the Leaping Thespians

The Leaping Thespians presents their parody of A Christmas Carol, with a lesbian twist!  The ghost of Marley is a college girlfriend who visits Crooge many years later. Marley admits to her own past homophobia and urges Crooge to come out. Her warning is followed by visits from the Ghosts of Lesbians Past, Present and Future.  One of The Network’s members is performing in (and helped write) the production, so show your support!
