April Awareness Month Events

For those of you who don’t know, April is the Asian/Asian American, Middle Eastern, Pacific Islander, and Queer Awareness Month at Wesleyan. That is a whole lot to be aware about and the April Planning Committee wants to make sure you know that there are still many events this month centered around or celebrating these identities.

Here are the events coming up. Since there are so many, I had to put a bunch after the jump. Check em out!

Queer Prom

WesFestival of Colors

Foss Hill
In a belated celebration of Holi, come out to Foss Hill for a WesFestival of Colors! Revelers celebrate Holi in India by throwing brightly colored paint at each other all day for good luck, in honor of the arrival of spring.  Shakti will bring colored powder (all natural, non-toxic) and blast the music – you bring friends, wearing white and prepared to get messy.

Don’t miss the intense cooking action!  Participants will have to create an Asian inspired appetizer, entree, and dessert!  Judges will determine the winner and the audience will be able to taste test.
