Last Thursday, the LGBTQ Center gathered on the steps of Jesse Hall in the Francis Quadrangle to take their annual group picture.  Sporting and impressive number of members, photographers had to step back to include everybody in the shot.  The energy of the crowd was ecstatic;  the photo shoot kicks of MU’s two-week long Gay Pride festival.  Other events include the Black and Gold Drag Show on Wednesday, October 17th, at 7 p.m. in the Shack.  Performers will put on homecoming-themed skits for the audience, who is encouraged to show off their best black and gold attire.  Thursday, October 18th, from 4-7 p.m. in the craft studio there will be a rainbow art reception, and afterwords the artwork will be for sale.  Friday the 19th, wrapping up Gay Pride is Innersex Awareness Day, when a biology professor will come speak to members about sexual awareness and how biology can affect sexuality. If you would like to get involved with the LGBTQ Center, contact them at lgbtq.missouri.edu, or stop by the office downstairs in the Student Center.
