So the coffee night this week was amazing, we filled up even more than usual and overflowed into multiple sections. Go us!
Coming up this Friday at 9PM at The Den on campus will be out annual Gender Bender cab! Do you have your tickets yet? They're $5 in advance from any exec (e-mail if you can't find us), or $7 at the door. It's a crazy party and will be a total blast so make sure to come out and bring your friends! Everyone welcome for the crazy fun times! :D
On a more serious, still fun though, note, QCampus's annual general meeting (AGM) will be on Monday, April 6, 2009 in the MacEwan Conference Centre's Excalus Room. We're voting on next year's exec and doing administrative junk. Come out, volunteer to be on the exec, or just come watch and vote. The most the merrier, there's no better time to scope out getting involved. If you can't make it e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd still like to be on the executive.
So there we go. As always check out our events page for upcoming activities and fun times.
GENDER BENDER FRIDAY. See you there!!
Friday, March 27, 2009
We invited queer students and allies alike to parade across the campus holding the hand of a same-gendered friend to illustrate support for love of all kinds and expressions of affection. Afterwards we had a dance party in the centre of Mac Hall complete with drag king show (thanks to Fake Moustache) and dance contest.
It was a successful display and a lot of fun to boot. We will definitely be trying to incorporate similar types of events again in the future.
Tonight we will be hosting queer speed dating as an end to our series of sexual awareness week events. It's been a good week and a groundbreaking one as far as QCampus is concerned.
Also, don't forget the next Friday, April 3 is our Gender Bender at 9:00pm at The Den on campus a UofC. It's our largest party of the year and an event not to be missed! Tickets can be purchased for $5 in advance from any exec member (e-mail us if you would like to come by to purchase -- WE WILL ALSO HAVE TABLE IN MAC HALL NEXT WEEK TO SELL TICKETS!!) or $7 at the door. Dancing, drag, debauchery, and fun. I couldn't think of another "d"-word. Oh well. Hope to see you all at coffee next week and then at the Gender Bender.

Our new website is finally up (with me getting off my lazy ass) at its new and appropriate address: http://www.ucalgary.ca/~qcampus , yay!
It's full of goodness and has an updated events page, a spot for exec bios, and a link to our fabulous new store! So go my queer little minions and frolick in our cemented web mastery. The world shall soon be ours!
At any rate, I'll be seeing the execs at our meeting tonight, and for everyone else, I will see you tomorrow at our coffee night, 7PM at the Kensington Second Cup, attendance has been phenomenal, let's go for the record!
If you have any questions/comments/ideas about the website, please, please, please, keep it to yourself. Kidding! Tell me right away, it's a place for all of us! It'll be epic.
Well then, Queerio! (See what I did? I changed "cheerio" to "queerio" to be more topical and potentially funny, and... ah, shut up.)

Hello Queers on Campus,
Could you communicate this message to the other
students from your club? The aim of this ad is not
to find a sexual partner but some roomates to share a
room in Panorama Invermere for the weekend Feb 20-22
and having fun skiing or snowboarding.
We are already twenty guys from Apollo Friends in sport
going over there for a ski/snowboard trip. However, two
people are missing to fulfill the rooms reserved. All rooms
have two single beds. The price for the whole weekend, from
Friday February 20 check in at 5 pm to Sunday Febr. 22, lift
tickets included, with access to the fitness, hot springs
etc. is $216 (gst included). We can arrange for the carpool
if you do not drive.
So, if you like sport, are in shape, and want to snowboard
or ski this weekend, send me an email. Warning: it is not
a sexual trip! If you need more info. you can meet me on
campus, I am also a student.

We’ve created a simple set of posters to make the university more
inclusive for queer people. We’ve printed off a bunch of posters and
we’re looking for volunteers to help put them all over the campus. We’re
meeting at 5:00PM on Wednesday, February 4 in the QC office (MSC 279Q –
see our website at www.ucalgary.ca/~glass for directions). Volunteers
will go out in groups of 2 or 3 for about one hour, and then we’ll go to
the Den to celebrate. If possible, bring your own stapler.
Thank you very much and looking forward to your feedback!
