AMS Insider Agenda
Pride UBC offers educational and social services regarding sexuality and gender identity to the UBC community. Pride UBC provides support and information to those who self-identify within the multitude of gender and sexuality identities and non-identities. Pride UBC assists those coming out, supplies a forum for discussion, has an office in the SUB, holds social events (including the Outweek celebration), and educates the wider UBC campus about the variation in gender and human sexuality. Members come from diverse backgrounds and everyone is welcome regardless of sexual or gender identity.
The above blurb is approved.
Outings, perhaps going to East Van.
Send an email / doodle to check people’s availability
Late afternoons work better (says Aria)
Cool to have snak meetings (bi-weekly picnic potluck style to be outdoors)
Queer Story Time (perhaps combined at picnic outings)
Conclusion: A consistent weekly event (with consistent venue), and a floating biweekly event
should have weekly meetings to organize (good idea to tack weekly meeting at end of snack times)
Posters and pamphlets for pride
Goal: to be ready by September
Forward information to Ted and Ema
Also Poster of Safe Space Rules for the office

Google Calendar to be added to website. Testing underway.
