Proud festivities 15-19 May

By Kerces 5 May 2006 25

The annual Cross-campus Pride Week is almost upon us again (not that I think I’ve managed to go to any part of it before)!

The festivities of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transexual and queer identifying (I know I’ll get an earful if that’s wrong) students of UC and ANU is jointly organised by the two queer societies and they have a whole host of events planned. I’m not entirely sure about who is welcome at these events but I’m fairly certain the opening, which Zed’s-rival-for-dishy-MLA Andrew Barr will be attending, is open to everyone.

The events start with a champagne brunch on Monday 15 May and run through until Friday 19 May. A draft program is below.

I know a person who is quite accomplished at Leepfrog.
