Trans Day Remembrance is... TODAY!!!

TAG TEAM, Irvine Queers, and other community resources, members, and allies will gather at the anteater steps for a night of education, speakers, a candlelight vigil, and a speakout. Those who complete their bingo card by visiting all of the tables will receive a free raffle ticket!

The Transgender Day of Remembrance is a national day set aside to memorialize those have been victims of transphobic violence. This year, our event hopes to call attention to the multiple forms of violence that affect the lives of gender-variant individuals. This includes the violence of language, state-sanctioned violence, and interpersonal physical violence, as well as other forms of violence. Our event also hopes to emphasize the intersectionality of transgender identity, and therefore the different forms of violence that gender variant individuals face depending on their unique experiences.

Note: If you are not comfortable taking the buses, feel free to meet up with the group at Spectrum House at 7:30. It will be lots of fun and there will be free food! I hope to see you all there! -IQ Secretary

Club Q

Thanks so much to all who came out to Club Q! I hope you had a blast. And for those who didn't make it out, hopefully you can make it to next quarter's. This quarter's halloween Club Q was themed after Michael Jackson's "Thriller," complete with a zombie makeup station and DIY qu people. (The qu person happens to be on facebook, if you'd like to friend them!) I had a great time dancing with some that I've seen around Club Q, as well as some new faces:) Hopefully I'll get to talk to more of you as the year progresses!

I'd like to give an extra shout out to:
IQ board
UCI dining
EDU
Blake Soderstrom
Meg Malm (aka MC sMEGma)
Anabelle- for the lovely qu person poster
Everyone who helped set up and clean up-thank you!
