Hey all,

The U of M Womyn’s Centre sent us the following message about one-day LGBTT* ally training. This is a great opportunity for anyone wanting to gain greater understanding of and involvement in the LGBTT* community. And all costs are covered and yummy Degrees food will be provided!

“The Rainbow Pride Mosaic (RPM) on campus has been organizing Ally    Training for individuals/groups interested in taking the one day    training conducted by representatives of the Rainbow Resource    Centre.

-an ally is a person who has taken    training around homophobia and heterosexism. They support and    welcome LGBTT* individuals and work towards creating more inclusive    and safe places for LGBTT* people, by being aware of the effects    that homophobia and heterosexism can have on people. They also    create change by challenging and providing education around    homophobia, heterosexism, stereotypes, and myths about LGBTT*    people-

The current training days are August 23rd  and September 20th (both    tuesdays) and will be catered by Degrees. The Womyn’s Centre will be    participating and will cover the registration costs for any members    interested in attending the one day training.

Just an announcement/reminder about tonight’s Outlaws party:

For those of you who don’t know, ‘OUTLAWS’ is Robson Hall’s Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Student Association. We host social events and academic discussions in addition to speaking out about Queer legal issues broadly and those that specifically may affect law students.

Speaking of social events;

This coming TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, from 5:00-7:00 at G. MARTINI BAR (River and Osborne), Outlaws will be hosting it’s 2nd Annual Back-To-School Social!!!

All GLBT law students (and their straight allies!) are welcome to attend. If you’re interested in meeting other GLBT law students in a safe and friendly environment, this is a great opportunity.
Students will also have the chance to meet some of the lawyers in SOGIC, the Manitoba Bar Association’s “Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Conference”.

As a queer-positive student group, the FLF is closely related to Outlaws. Hopefully FLF members can make it out to this fun social event!
