Netflix Watch Parties
Due to students requesting opportunities to still connect, the LGBTQIA Resource Center has decided to host monthly Netflix Watch Parties! In order to participate, you will need to install the Netflix Party extension on Google Chrome (this extension can only be found on Google Chrome). A staff member of the Center will start the watch party for the film approximately 15 minutes prior to the start time and will share the URL with all who have registered to attend. To join the Netflix Party, you will click on the provided URL, click on the "NP" button next to the address bar, and then you will automatically join the party. You can change your name and avatar in the top right corner. There will be a chat box for us to converse while watching the film together.
To learn more about Netflix Party, visit their website. Make sure to install the Netflix Party extension ahead of time in case you have to restart Google Chrome!
For the actual films we will be watching, engage with us on Instagram to submit and vote on movies you'd like to watch! Follow us on Instagram to get the latest updates!
Date and Time TBD
This workshop will be a collaboration between the LGBTQIA Resource Center and Health Initiatives. We will cover topics such as dealing with uncertainty right now, not being out to family/being back in the closet, connection/community, and resources on/off campus.
Queerness and Fatness
Thursday, July 23rd, 1pm-2pm EST
This workshop will be a collaboration between the LGBTQIA Resource Center and Health Initiatives. We will cover topics such as fatphobia in queer communities, queer culture and respentations of fatness, and the unique aspects of being fat and queer.
Queer Liberation Art Crawl
June 28, 2020 will be the 50 year anniversary of the first "Pride March" (Christopher Street Liberation Day occured on June 28, 1970). As a Center, we want to honor all of the LGBTQIA ancestors, trailblazers, and courageous humans who came before us. To commemorate this day, we are holding a Queer Liberation Art Crawl on June 29, 2020 all day via our Instagram page! Our goal is to have a collection of various types of art (visual, performance, written, etc.) celebrating queer liberation and detailing what queer liberation means and looks like to you.
To participate, all you have to do is tag @gt_lgbtqia on Instagram or @Georgia Tech LGBTQIA Resource Center on Facebook on any post you make showcasing your art work, or you can email us your work at firstname.lastname@example.org. We ask that these not be in stories unless on June 29th because we cannot save and then share stories days later. We will be collecting/collating pieces of art throughout the month of June (via Instagram, Facebook, and email) and hosting the showcase at the end of June.
The art showcase will be all day on June 29th on our Instagram story!
Student Emergency Fund
The Division of Student Life and the Alumni Association are partnering to collect and distribute emergency funding through the Georgia Tech Parents Fund and Roll Call to support students in need.
This fund has been established to support Tech students who have a demonstrated financial need related to the COVID-19 crisis and campus closures. Funding is available to all enrolled Georgia Tech students and can be used to alleviate financial challenges resulting from the current public health crisis, including travel assistance, housing assistance, medical expenses, moving costs, financial support, food insecurity, and much more.
