"I'm Christian, unless You're Gay"       

By Jeannette Perez 


In November of 2011 a blogger by the name of Dan Pearce wrote an article titled "I'm Christian , unless you're gay". In this article Pearce addresses how, no matter what religious background one may have, no religion teaches to hate others, but rather to love all.

He later addresses his readers, "the more you put your arm around those that you might naturally look down on, the more you will love yourself. And the more you love yourself, the less need you'll ever have to find fault or be better than others. - Read more

Coming out can be a scary thing and often times can be a bit confusing. With a community filled with many labels and sub-labels, finding yourself and where you fit in it, can be a bit challenging. Come join me in a discussion on the process and journey of coming out and how to continue to self-love, self-care, and self-discover during this challenging process.

Empire's Proxy: American Literature & U.S. Imperialism in the Philippines       

Wednesday | May 9 | 2pmmegwesling 

CCC Library   


Drawing on a wealth of material, including historical records, governmental documents from the War Department and the Bureau of Insular Affairs, curriculum guides, memoirs of American teachers in the Philippines, and 19th century literature, Meg Wesling not only links empire with education, but also demonstrates that the rearticulation of American literary studies through the imperial occupation in the Philippines served to actually define and strengthen the field. Empire's Proxy boldly argues that the practical and ideological work of colonial dominance figured into the emergence of the field of American literature, and that the consolidation of a canon of American literature was intertwined with the administrative and intellectual tasks of colonial management.
