Subject: You spilled OUTspoken newsletter in my inbox?! NEWSLETTER IN MY EMAIL INBOX?!

An Overwatch death message that says You were eliminated by thegayagenda.

I think I peaked with my first email's subject line.

Like really, think about it. It's all been downhill from there. This subject was another vine reference. I would link the vine, but nobody puts actual captions on their YouTube videos for vines because they're cowards.

Sorry this is getting sent out so late. I earlier I was feeling very anxious and the executive dysfunction was hitting hard, and I couldn't write the newsletter. Anyway! Because it's the end of the semester, there's not many immediate events I will talk about in this email (if any), but I will talk about the ones coming up next semester!

This isn't exactly an event, but it does occur at a time and place! So there's this thing called oSTEM (out in STEM) which is an organization for LGBTQ+ people in STEM (I think we already took over SOFA, CAD, and COLA) and the Q Center has been working on trying to get a chapter established here at RIT. Right now it's in the early stages with information meetings, guaging interest (that word looks funny but I feel like that is the correct way to spell it), and spreading the word. So here I am, spreading the word that they meet in the Q Center on Wednesdays from 2:00 to 3:00.

Because it's already super late I'm just going make a quick rapid-fire list of stuff to look out for in spring semester:
  • Prideprints: Trans Edition on March 31st aka Trans Day of Visibility
  • Barbequeer on April 28th aka Reading Day (we basically just hang out and eat food. It's a barbeque but queer.)
  • Elections for next year's OUTspoken president and vice president (please we need people to run because if other people don't then I may have to and I'm already letting the power go to my head as marketing director)
  • Rainbow graduation (want to have a graduation ceremony where they use your real name and pronouns? Here you go!)
  • NELGBTC aka Northeastern LGBT Conference from April 24th to 26th (You can learn what it is on the website, but the TLDR is it's a college LGBT conference. The event has both ASL interpreting and wheelchair-accessible classrooms available!)
If you're interested in going to NELGBTC, please let us know! There will be a poll/polls (still figuring out the best way to do it) out shortly but if you want to add a personal touch, you can always email us.

I'm on my laptop and don't have the OUTspoken web banner, and even though it has the file saved to CampusGroups, adding a saved file doesn't let you write alt text, and I'm not going to put in any inaccessible images, so enjoy a bonus meme. Thank you for being patient with this newsletter's anxiety-delay!!!

The scene from The Office where Pam says And I feel God in this Chilli's tonight, with the white text below being altered to say And I feel MLM/WLW solidarity in this Chilli's tonight.
Okay, I have a confession. Originally this sidebar wasn't going to be specifically for inventory, just general memeing, but then people said that they loved the inventory so I panicked and kept doing it, but now I'm in my room and not in the office, and also stuff has stayed pretty similar in the last few weeks. Of course now that I need to think of something else to put here, I can't because I put myself on the spot. Wow, I am really a mess today, aren't I?

(Fun fact about this meme, I thought of it and made it myself. So yeah, I guess you could say I'm a creative genius.)
