Peers for Queers!

From Leung You Rong Michael ’15 and Emily Hoge ’15:

Are you gay, lesbian, queer, or otherwise? Do you want to make a difference in the lives of young Middletown high school students?

Leung You Rong Michael ’15 and Emily Hoge ’15 will be starting the Wesleyan Peers for Queers Program next semester in collaboration with Middletown High School, and they need your help! This program aims to pair up Wesleyan students with queer high school students in an effort to provide an emotional support network to them. Monthly informal get togethers would be organized for students to get to know each other better.

They will also be initiating a Wesleyan QueerSib Program next semester to establish a stronger rapport within the Wesleyan queer community, whereby Wesleyan upperclassmen will be paired up with underclassmen. Please come with ideas or suggestions on how you want this program to be run!

We will be holding a meeting on Monday (5 Dec), 7pm at Allbritton 004 to discuss the details of the project and to coordinate our schedules for next semester’s activities (The meeting will last around 15 minutes).

Please send an email to yleung(at)wesleyan(dot)edu or ehoge(at)wesleyan(dot)edu for more info.

Date: Monday, December 5th
Times: 7pm
Place: Allbritton 004
