Audition for Queerz for Fearz, Wesleyan’s First Queercappella Group

Queerz for Fearz is hotter than a menage a twa(t) between Lady Gaga, Rupaul, and every single member of the Village People. It’s a new a cappella group dedicated to queering the Wes music scene, finding new ways to perform gender, as well as fostering sex positivity and empowerment. We’re looking for queer-identified vocal musicians, especially underclasspeeps. If this turns you on, please attend the funnest and lowest stress audition you’ll ever have in your life, mostly guaranteed.

Date: Tues, Feb 2 & Thurs, Feb 4
Time: 8-10pm (2/2) & 4-6pm (2/4)
Place: Usdan 108 (2/2) & Usdan 110 (2/4)

time for change

Remember… you don’t have to light up to lighten up.

From a campaign statement of sorts posted on Aural Wes…

WE CANNOT JUST KEEP WESLEYAN WEIRD, WE MUST MAKE IT WEIRD

CHOOSE ADVENTURE OVER BOREDOM

WE DON’T WANT A CHANGE IN BOSSES, WE WANT A CHANGE IN LIFE

WRITE IT IN!

Elections close at midnight tonight. Don’t sleep on it.
