The Gender Public Advocacy Coalition is pleased to announce the release of its 2008 GENIUS Survey in partnership with Ernst & Young. GenderPAC works to ensure that classrooms, communities and workplaces are safe for everyone to learn, grow and succeed.

The Gender Equality National Index for Universities & Schools (GENIUS), GenderPAC’s most recent effort to end discrimination and promote awareness, encourages colleges and universities to recognize the benefits of a GenderSAFE campus - supportive equitable and protective for all students. Choosing to participate in GENUIS sends a strong public statement that bullying or discriminating based on the race, sex or gender of a student, faculty, or staff member is not tolerated at your institution

Fill out the survey at: www.gpac.org/GENIUS2008survey, and make sure that we have data for as many schools as possible. Your voice will help us continue to work towards a safe and welcoming environment for every student

Hi folks.
Former Boston Avenger here.
I NOW work at Cornell University for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Resource Center. Our office is helping to advise the students in charge of the "femsex" class--a student-run optional class where people learn about women and women's sexuality and sex. They've asked us to help them find someone to speak in one of their classes, in exchange for travel and housing and expenses. Specifically, they would like to have a woman who's comfortable doing some basic education in BDSM/leather issues and sex work who's worked professionally as a dom. We can cover travel expenses for anyone coming from New York, Boston, Philly, Buffalo etc., in that sort of radius from Ithaca, NY which is in central NY. Does anyone have any leads? People I should talk to? Is anyone here interested?
The class would be from 5-7pm on November 8, so this whole thing is pretty short-notice. If you have thoughts you can e-mail me at lgbtrc@cornell.edu or call 607-254-4987.

the papercut zine library is having a speed-friending/dance party extravangza!  what is "speed-friending" you ask?  well, it's like speed dating except it's gender neutral and has slightly less sexual tension.

bostonians can be a frigid, inhospitable group of people- make all new friends in one night by rushing around a room and talking to people with weird assigned topics and 23.7% less awkwardness!

if you're not into the speed part- we'll also have games and those horrible yet giggle inducing icebreakers they used to make you play on the first day of school.

later on we'll have an super cool dance party- which you know will rock cuz zinesters are the masters of the mixtape*

anyway, it's happening on october 20, 2006 at 7pm at the papercut zine library (45 mt. auburn st. in cambridge).

please bring your friends, your eccentric sense of humor, a 5$ suggested donation to benefit the zine library, and a snack to share!!!!!

Love to sing? The Boston Women’s Rainbow Chorus, Boston’s premiere chorus for lesbians, bisexual women, and allies, will hold auditions for singers on and September 5, 12 and 17.
Email info@boswrc.org or call 617-522-7270 for more information or to schedule an audition!

The Boston Women’s Rainbow Chorus seeks to give voice to the diverse experience of women throughout history and across cultures worldwide. As lesbians and bisexual women, together with our female allies, we seek to represent the unrecorded legacy of today’s women for the women of tomorrow. We sing a broad spectrum of repertoire (world, classical, folk and more), particularly music by women, non-western European, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender composers.

but my living arrangements fell through!   So, I turn to you.  If you've got any leads on small rooms (or even have a couch I can sleep on, I'll pay for that, too!  Hell, I'll take a spot on the floor at this point.)  Really, I just need to be able to sleep and shower.  I'm supposed to be taking summer classes for my masters program, so it's a little more urgent than just having to move some other point.  

I need a room June 25th through August 20th.  I'm 21 and really easy to get along with.  I'll stay out of your way, won't eat your food and will pitch in with household chores. 

Leave a comment if you know of anything.
