Take Back the Night, Queer Awareness Take Over Sproul

Posted By Christine Borden On Apr 16, 2008 @ 11:54 pm In News | Comments Disabled

Come 5 p.m., you’ll find a group of serious, strong men and women rallying on Upper Sproul against sexual and domestic violence, rape, and hate crimes. The Take Back the Night [1] rally will feature art, poetry and music until 8 p.m.

TBTN is a part of a larger week (or weeks, depending on how you look at it). In addition to Safety Awareness Week, the event is also listed under Queer Awareness Days [2] … so be queer and safe and stand up against violence.

Other notable to-do’s:

Monday, Apr. 21 – Thursday, Apr. 24
SEO [3]‘s Eliminate Hate Campaign, Upper Sproul: Buy a pink T-shirt, hate on hate.

Tuesday, Apr. 22

Wednesday, Apr. 23
Double Penetration of Queer Pop Culture: The L Word and Queer As Folk, 305 Eshleman: OK, so we were just aroused by the title.

Friday, Apr. 25
