A message from the President of NOGLSTP at IU dated 8/24/11

Hello,

The first meeting of NOGLSTP at IU, National Organization of Gay and Lesbian Scientists and Technical Professionals, is a week from today. Next Wednesday, August 31st, we will be meeting at 7:30pm in the Distinguished Alumni Room (very excited about this…it’s a really nice room).

The room is located on the Mezzanine Floor of the IMU. If you are walking towards the tree suites, it is to the left, before you make any turns, in the corner (after you pass the couch in the room with the old telephone booths, it is to the left at the end of that hall).

WHY SHOULD I BE A PART OF NOGLSTP???

Well…
NOGLSTP at IU has the potential to play a vital role at this university.

Here are three examples:
1. It can give graduating students a professional way to be out on their resume, by listing membership in a professional, queer organization.

2. There is a glaring disparity in the “queer climate,” between the math and sciences versus the liberal arts. It does NOT have to be this way. This is a major ambition for the group. (Going from the music school, to a semester of only math classes, to a semester in the education school, I have been made very aware of the differences).

3. Provide an opportunity for GLBTQ students in the STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) to meet other queer students.

Would love to hear more ideas, see new faces!!

Thanks for your time.

Gregory Weber
President, NOGLSTP at IU


Many thanks to NOGLSTP at IU founder and outgoing President and new National NOGLSTP Board Representative Chris Kase!

Congratulations to the incoming NOGLSTP at IU President Gregory Weber!

We invite you to join us this Tuesday (10/26/10) at 7:30 pm in the Fine Arts Building room 015 (FA 015) for an Intersex Awareness Day (10/26) presentation of the film “Is it a Boy or a Girl?” Everyone is welcome!

NOGLSTP at IU Intersex Awareness Day film
> “Is it a Boy or a Girl?”
> 7:30 pm, Tuesday, October 26th
> Fine Arts Building room 015
> Running time is 58 minutes–Discussion to follow
> Admission is free–Everyone is welcome

“This Discovery Channel documentary features adults with intersex conditions, scientists, and medical professionals discussing their experiences with intersex and their thoughts about the treatment of intersex as a social and medical emergency. The video also provides an opening segment that explains the physiological development of sexual anatomy in utero and how intersex conditions sometimes result.” <http://www.isna.org/files/teaching_packet.pdf>

“This one-hour documentary was nominated for a GLAAD award for Outstanding TV Journalism.

From the moment of birth, everybody wants to know is it a boy or a girl? This question can be complicated when a third option is introduced; one out of every two thousand children in America is born intersexual. Sometimes … children are born with mixed sexual characteristics, in what is called an intersexual birth.

Many argue that the standard practice of sexual assignment by surgery in infancy should be discontinued giving the intersexual the right to choose or not to choose surgery once that person reaches adolescence. But whatever the surgical choice, intersexuals show us that gender is infinitely more complex than shape of our genitals.”

NOGLSTP at IU is co-sponsoring the 2010 National Day of Silence at IU!
—————————————————————————————————————
From the IU National Day of Silence blog:

What is the National Day of Silence?
The National Day of Silence is a nation-wide event in April when hundreds of thousands of students come together to take a pledge of silence in hopes of promoting empathy and respect for members of the GLBT community. The community and their allies are silenced daily as a result of anti-GLBT name-calling, harassment and lack of appreciation for their aspirations, goals, and needs.

Why is the Day of Silence Important?
GLSEN’s 2005 National School Climate Survey found that four out of five LGBT students report verbal, sexual or physical harassment at school and 29% report missing at least a day of school in the past month out of fear for their personal safety. The silence of GLBT youth and adults can be responded to with a visible display of support and empathy towards those who have felt silenced or are unable to express themselves as a result of harassment. In order to meet the needs of students and faculty on campus, we are organizing a Day of Silence at IU.

What will the Day of Silence be like at IU?
This year, we will be handing out t-shirts and taking pledges to be silent on Wednesday, April 14th. Then, participants will wear their t-shirts on the following day (April 15th) and refrain from speaking. We will have a “Breaking the Silence” reception, hosted by the CommUnity Education Program, The Savants, and Union Board. Food will be provided by B-town Menus. We hope you can join us for both events!

When is it?
This year, the Day of Silence will be held at IU on Thursday, April 15th. Come pick up a t-shirt at any of the campus locations on April 14th and take your vow of silence. This vow of silence is a pledge to be silent on the following day.
—————————————————————————————————————
You can learn more about the Day of Silence at IU by visiting its Facebook page, and more about National Day of Silence by visiting http://www.dayofsilence.org.

Bent: The Movie
Directions to the Helene G. Simon Hillel Center
The Hillel Center is located at 730 East 3rd Street in Bloomington, between Woodlawn and Fess directly across the street from Swain Hall on the Indiana University-Bloomington campus.

BENT Synopsis
This film draws from the award-winning play by Sherman Martin that spotlights the Nazi persecution of homosexuals. This emotional drama chronicles the struggles of a gay man who not only survived a concen- tration camp, but also emerged from it a better, more caring human being at peace with his sexuality.
