Glitter Pop Drag Show 2012 now has a date set

Posted by pride at 7:49 pm, Tuesday, March 27 2012

We’ve arranged it for April 27th.  This is a bit later than we’d hoped, but we had some communication difficulties so our preferred spots were unavailable.  Nonetheless, this should be a great way to wind down for a night before Finals Week.

As usual, the show will take place at Jungle Club.

Registration is open, both for contestants and for volunteers, at the Glitter Pop website: pride.gatech.edu/drag

We do ask that contestants please be registered no later than April 13th and have their bios and final song choices submitted by April 20th, so that we can better organize the event.

Atlanta LGBTQ Survey

Posted by pride at 12:32 am, Thursday, February 9 2012

Dear Pride at Georgia Tech members,

I am currently conducting a study approved by the Tufts University Institutional Review Board that attempts to identify the needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) students in Atlanta area colleges and universities.  Specifically, this survey seeks to assess the prevalence of rape and sexual assault occurring amongst this historically marginalized student population, as well as their perceptions of the response of the university, law enforcement, and/or mental health agencies to their assault.  The study consists of an anonymous online questionnaire, with opportunities for both a follow-up telephone interview and personal narrative submission.

If you could forward this call to your listserv membership and to any other channels or listservs you deem appropriate, that would be tremendously helpful!  I am trying to reach as many students as possible.

Auburn University Study of Relationship Between Religious and Homosexual Identity

Posted by pride at 11:18 pm, Monday, January 23 2012

Members of Pride Alliance,

I am a Graduate Student in the Department of Sociology at Auburn University.  I would like to invite you and members of your organization to participate in my research study to investigate the relationship between religious identity and homosexual identity.  You may participate if you are at least 19 years of age and self-identify as a homosexual individual.

Participants will be asked to complete an electronic survey that will take approximately thirty minutes.

Breach of confidentiality for this survey is minimal and this risk has been minimized by collecting data anonymously (no identifying information will be collected including IP addresses).

If you would like to know more information about this study, an informational letter can be obtained by clicking on the link belowhttps://auburn.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_eMdTsArq1DiUgZu . If you decide to participate after reading the letter, you can access the survey from a link in the letter.

If you have any questions, please contact me at sam0045@auburn.edu or my advisor, Dr. Allen Furr, at laf0014@auburn.edu.

Thank you for your consideration,

Stacie Moss
