  • Also, please remember to sign in at meetings. Even if you are a little later (no more than 20 minutes) If you miss the sign in sheet on the first round, come and find me and I will let you sign in. Please also remember to sign legibly if you are new and I don’t already have your name. We use the sign in sheet to keep track of attendance which can affect you membership status.

On the t-shirt, the quotation marks will be removed before they are ordered. But his is the color and quote that will be used. The font may be changed, and you will know what it officially looks like next Monday.

We had a great meeting, it was a Queer Quad Picnic where we played “I’m a Privaqueer!” and “Heterosexual Freezetag”. Our next meeting topic is Coming Out Day where some of us will be telling our coming out stories and sharing with the group. We will start in the Mathematics Building and move out into the Quad for a more open atmosphere. If you wish to share but want to do it anomalously you can e-mail unity@uno.edu and you have our word that only Ally or I will see it, or you can give it to one of the e-board members in person. This will take place on October 13, 2014.

We hope to see you all there!
