Communications Coordinator: Elizabeth Besadesky
Information Coordinator: Ryan Gaffney
WOO SUMMER VACATION!!!
Have a great, gay, and safe summer y’all!
Why is it offensive to call Trannys Pinnochios? I mean, both want to be a real boy and really won't unless magic is involved. . .
It is offensive because your statement is incorrect.
Also, not all “trannys” want to be boys.
What kind of things do you guys do?
Glad hosts meetings (both socially and educationally focused) every Wednesday. We also have various events throughout each semester, including (but not limited to) karaoke, bowling, drag shows, marching in Pride parade in the fall, Second Chance Prom in the spring, and Day of Silence/Night of Noise.
Are your meetings open to students that attend TWU? Or do we have to be UNT students?
Our meetings are open to everyone. TWU students, UNT students, even non-students.
How welcoming is Glad and the general LGBT community to straight allies? I really want to join Glad when I begin school in the Fall 2013 semester but I just want to make sure I will be welcome if I do.
At Glad, we try to create a safe and supportive atmosphere for every letter of the Alphabet Soup (LGBTQQIAA-etc.etc.etc.) and one of those “A”s stands for “Ally”. Allies are an integral part of the community and the civil rights movements. We love and appreciate our Ally members.
what does the initials GLAD stand for?
The acronym GLAD is no longer used for our group name. We are simply Glad: UNT’s Queer Alliance. We feel this is a more inclusive name and more representative of who we are. The old acronym was something along the lines of Gay and Lesbian Alliance of Denton.
Come to the meeting tonight!!!
It’s one of our favorites and will be SO much fun. Like overly fun. Almost too much fun. I promise. Money back guarantee. 7pm Chem 109
