One of our amazing centers (Queer Community Alliance Center) is hosting their fourth annual Five College Queer Gender & Sexuality Conference this weekend!
The Queer Conference, which takes place at Hampshire College in the heart of the Five College Consortium in Western Massachusetts aims to offer an accountable and supportive environment in which to further explore a wide range of topics, and their intersections, such as race, genders, sexualities, ability, class, kink, survival strategies, and many more, in a specifically queer context. We strive to provide a safer space for engaging, learning, and sharing with workshops, panels, and lectures by both student leaders and off-campus educators.
This open and inclusive conference is FREE and organized by students from the Five Colleges.
Pre-register now before it’s too late!

Hampshire College anti-racist Halloween costume checklist is used at UCLA.
UCLA student Ben Slavich remarks, “Yes, I did find the checklist. It was posted next to the elevator of every floor, and the main entrance to the residence hall as well. I don’t know if it was received at all. I go to UCLA so our campus is quite large, and I didn’t see any persons actively trying to advocate the ideology presented in the poster. I was surprised to see the poster at all; I didn’t think the school was aware of such issues. I would love to have seen this poster enforced a little bit more because there were many racially incorrect costumes. But it would be hard to force that upon a campus so large. 
However, on the other hand UCLA is instating a tabacco free policy on the whole campus. Ironically, the campus is littered with racially incorrect costumes on Halloween but not even the littlest bit of tabacco.”
