The Center for Gender, Sexuality, and Activism is Celebrating Its Fifth Birthday!

 

This weekend, The Center for Gender, Sexuality and Activism (CGSA/Center) will be celebrating its FIFTH birthday. The party will begin at 7 PM on Friday, October 25th in the lovely space, located in the basement of the GSU. The CGSA will also be hosting an Alumni Brunch on the next day (Saturday, October 26th) from 2-4 PM.

Here are some reasons why you should attend the birthday party:

+This event is totally FREE but bring cash to win some exciting prizes in the silent auction and purchase some comfy sweatshirts (see below).

+Veggie burritos, corn chips, salsa, and guacamole are on the menu… because the event will be catered by CHIPOTLE.

+There will be vegan and gluten-free goodies served. And they will taste SO DELICIOUS!

+Queer singer/songwriter, Evan Greer will be performing an acoustic set!

+Center members will be performing some of their own spoken word and music.

+There will be a silent auction in which a huge basket of toys from Good Vibrations, dates with lovely CGSA members, and more are up for grabs!

+The Center’s logo got a makeover! The new design will be printed onto Union-made sweatshirts -- available for purchase at the event.

+There will be a photo booth set up in front of the Center’s chalkboard so you can practice smizing or just be silly.

If you’re not quite convinced, here are some fun facts about the Center:

+The CGSA’s mission is to create a safer space for individuals of all genders and sexualities through a social justice framework.

+Thanks to 1960’s and 70’s student activists that preceded the organization, what used to function as a storage closet is now a space with its own library, resource board, and super comfy couches.

+The CGSA is one of the few centers in the country completely run by student volunteers. (That means you can get involved!)

+The Center has its own incredible programming. That being said, you should definitely attend this year’s New England Women’s Center Conference.

+The Center is also a space for groups to meet! If you’d like to learn more, sign up for the email list or send an email to cgsa@bu.edu.
