Hey everyone,

Spring quarter meetings are going to be on Fridays at 1:30 in LDC 211. No meeting will be held on April 21st as we will be at the LGBT leadership conference.

Also, for those of you who have the time you should check out Washington Won't Discriminate at http://www.washingtonwontdiscriminate.org/
They're in need of volunteers for pretty much anything, so if you want to get a little more politically involved with the LGBT community here's your chance.

WASHINGTON WON’T DISCRIMINATE is the name of the campaign working to stop the attempted repeal of our state’s law that protects people from discrimination based on sexual orientation. WWD is a statewide coalition of individuals, businesses, religious and community-based organizations who believe all people should be treated equally and fairly.

Those who do not agree that our friends, family, neighbors and co-workers should be protected from discrimination based on sexual orientation have filed Referendum 65. They are collecting signatures to put the anti-discrimination law up for a statewide vote this November. If they collect enough signatures to put it on the ballot and voters reject the non-discrimination law, it would be legal to fire someone or deny them housing simply because they are gay or lesbian.

Washington Won’t Discriminate believes that all people should be protected from discrimination and judged on their individual merits. We know that the vast majority of Washingtonians agree. Discrimination is wrong. The state’s law against discrimination should be approved (retained) and people should not be fired for being gay or lesbian.

So, I am sitting in the Fairhaven Computer lab researching gay things. My thought: we should officially register for the Day of Silence!

Just wanted to mention a few things. If for some reason you are not receiving email updates from us, leave your email addy and check your spam blocker. Also, for those of you who don't know, HB 2661 (gay anti-discrimination bill) passed in the house last week and now it goes to the Senate. I'm planning to go down to Olympia to watch the hearing tomorrow, once Colleen tells me the time, anyone want to come with?

Another thing, I host a little L Word get together every Sunday at 7. If anybody wants to watch let me know and I'll email my address. This Sunday we'll be watching the 3rd episode of Season 3.

Winter quarter meeting times will be fridays at 1:30 in LDC 211. Hopefully we can keep the same meeting time next quarter too. I know it can be confusing to have it change all the time.

This friday we will playing some games and possibly watching a film. It will be fun so everyone should come!

Just a reminder that Activities Fair is tomorrow and Wednesday from 10 to 2 in the Syre hallway. I want to encourage everyone to use this community. It doesn't have to be directly NQA related either, general discussion is just fine.

I hope everyone who went enjoyed our little venture to watch Brokeback Mountain. For those of you who didn't, I highly suggest you see it. I watched it twice and actually enjoyed it more the second time.

Hey everyone,

Hope that you had a good break! One of our new advisers just reminded me, we have a meeting this Friday in LDC 212 at 3:30.

Also, this Thursday is Word AIDS Day. I really need people to assist in manning the table from 10 to 2:30 in Syre. This is a great chance for some of you to get involved. Even if all you have is an hour between classes, any help will be appreciated.

If you can't help out, please stop on by our table in the Syre Student Center between 10:30 - 2:30 and pick up some stickers or various World AIDS Day resources we'll be providing.

~Janice~

P.S. I'll be posting later with an update on events that will be happening around town on Thursday.
