Cross-Cultural Center Library Thurs Oct 29. 6-8pm
Welcome to my little shop of horrors. These nine stories feature the Seven Deadly Sins the good nuns in Catholic schools warned us about. Pride. Envy. Anger. Avarice. Sloth. Gluttony. Lust. In case you haven't noticed yet, most of my lovely sinners are women. Spooky mo makes a pun on that crude Pinoy Epithet men hurl- more often out of droll affection than malice- at female friends. I've returned the favor with tales that demonstrate how we members of the gentler sex can, when provoked, turn into genuinely scary bitches.
OURSELVES TOGETHER: AUTHENTICITY, WHOLENESS, AND
Center Conference Room. Wed Oct 28. 5-7pm
There is more about the amazing you than what
most people see! Yet sometimes we don't allow ourselves to be our whole being to
be shared with other people. Often times it is easy to share things like our
favorite ice cream flavor, our college or major, but things that are more
personal like our political views, our passions, cultural beliefs and values, or
our partner's gender are left behind. Whether it's with friends, family, work,
or school, parts of our identities are often left behind. Come share your
experiences about these situations, and learn ways to incorporate that part of
you that's often forgotten. Be your whole, authentic selves without compromising
what's most important -YOU! Light refreshments and snackage will be provided,
and come make a puzzle piece to put on display. If you have any questions, feel
free to send a message to email@example.com.

SPOKEN: A CRITICAL LOOK AT QUEER SPOKEN WORD POETRY
LGBT Resource Center Conference Room. Wed Nov 4. 5-7pm
In a time where the spoken word
movement and slam poetry have become highly visible through productions such as
Def Poetry Jam, many have turned to
writing and performing spoken word poetry as a way to have a voice in their
communities and in the nation as a whole.
We will take a look at recognized queer spoken word artists and poets
that have created a voice for the LGBT community in the spoken word and slam
world and will even learn how to create our own spoken word poetry. Come for a night of storytelling, art and
good vibes! If you have any questions

VISUAL ARTS DEPARTMENT VISITING ARTIST LECTURE SERIES PRESENTS:
Visual Arts Facility Performance Space. Tues Oct 27. 6:30pm
VALS is pleased to
present William Cordova. Cordova's work is tied to an urban ecology of
obsolescence, disparity, and displacement. Busted cars, trashed tires,
discarded shoes, machetes, speakers, and books yellowed with age provide the
material support and iconographic program for his drawings, collages, and
installations. For the artist, these material choices reference the reality of
lived experience, as opposed to the spectacle of culture, mass-produced for
constant consumption. The fluency with which Cordova traverses media and
remixes cultural signifiers confirms his visual multilinguism, as barbed as it
