You, dear, deserve a night of reclamation.
A break from the hetero social life.
A night of demolishing those boxes society keeps trying to throw you

A night of partying among friends.

Everyone Is Gay

Yes, reader, that includes you. Coming at you from Marissa Castrigno ’15:

Everyone is Gay began as a humorous advice blog, but quickly became a multi-faceted safe haven for young people – particularly queer youth, their families and friends. In fall of 2011, Everyone is Gay began touring school campuses nationwide to raise awareness, answer questions, and provide simple yet powerful steps for bringing change and awareness to communities… while keeping everyone laughing.

Date: Wednesday, April 10th, 2013
Time: 7:00–8:30 PM
Place: CFA Hall
Cost: Free!
