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!
LGBTQIA Self-Care Social Media Content
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.
This workshop will be a collaboration between the LGBTQIA Resource Center and the Women's Resource Center. Join Camilla Brewer and Dani Lechner as they discuss fatness, body size, and feminism in queer culture. They will chat on Instagram about your fave fictional characters (problematic and otherwise) with opportunity to engage with them in the chat. Learn about fat representation in queer culture! 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 occurred on June 28, 1970). As a Center, we wanted to honor all of the LGBTQIA ancestors, trailblazers, and courageous humans who came before us. To commemorate this day, we held a Queer Liberation Art Crawl on June 29, 2020 via our Instagram page! Our goal was 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. Make sure to check out our Instagram Highlights to see the art!
The Georgia Tech community is invited to virtually meet Tegra Myanna (they/their/theirs), new director of the LGBTQIA Resource Center. Join as Tegra shares their vision for the Center, addresses what's next to come, and answers your questions.
