It’s the first (hopefully annual) Trans Awareness Week at Columbia! According to the event page, the week consists of “events that raise awareness and educates the Columbia community about the lives and experiences of transgender and nonbinary communities.”
Yesterday and today were a few events, but the next open event is tonight from 7:00 to 9:00 PM where you can catch a screening of Tangerine in the Stephen Donaldson Lounge at Furnald.
Tomorrow there’s an informational discussion on the basics of being transgender, hosted by GS Alliance, in 608 Schermerhorn from 7:00 to 9:00 PM.
And on Friday there is one (open) event, a field trip from 6:00 to 9:00 PM to the NYC LGBT Center’s “Trans Day of Remembrance.” Participants meet at the Intercultural Resource Center (552 W. 114th) and will get a free ice cream cone from Big Gay Ice Cream. Email LGBTQA@columbia.edu to reserve a spot.
There are possibly more events that will be added to the main event page, so keep on checking for updates and new events. Besides the invaluable education of our campus community, there might also be free (FREE!) food. And we know those are two of Columbia’s favorite things.
