To build upon the Augustinian concept of community, this group's mission is to increase awareness and recognition of diversity and, in particular, to foster understanding of sexual orientation within a Catholic Judeo-Christian environment.
To accomplish this, the group's objectives are:
Movie Night! Screening of the movie, "Pariah", 6:00 p.m. Mendel 115
"Coming Out in the Workplace" led by Dr. Katina Sawyer, Ph.D. Discussion about the struggle and stigma when coming out in your job and her current research, 7:00 p.m., Bartley 023A
Kan Jam Tournament! All proceeds will be donated to the programs supporting homeless LGBT youth, 3:00 p.m., Ellipse
AIDEN KOSCIESZA: "Plastic Boy: Transgender Identity Unpacked" 7:00 p.m., St. Augustine Room 300
Reflection to close the week: join us to reflect on ally-ship on campus and experiences of coming out, 7:00 p.m.: meet at the Oreo and walk together to the Grotto for the Reflection
To join in helping the GSC achieve its goals, please feel free to contact Kathy Byrnes via email or at 610-519-4550. Emails may also be sent directly to email@example.com.
The GSC is open to all students interested in helping the group achieve its goals. We believe that homophobia is best overcome through the collaboration of both gay and straight people working together.
The GSC offers numerous programming opportunities to the campus community to inform, as well as change, attitudes regarding homosexuality. While always looking for innovative ideas from current and new members, some of the programming includes: panel discussions, guest speakers, movies, and programs in the residence halls.
Please consider joining to share your ideas!
