Pride Alliance April Events

Robyn Ochs, a gender-equality activist and editor of the anthology “Getting Bi: Voices of Bisexuals Around the World” will present a workshop on Thursday, April 4.

The interactive discussion on bisexuality, called “Beyond Binaries,” will explore the landscape of sexual orientation and the relationship between experience and self-identity, and the way people are “read” by others. Sponsored by the Pride Alliance, the workshop will begin at 7 p.m. in the Geneva Room.

The Pride Alliance will then present Music Backwards on Friday, April 6, beginning at 7:30 p.m. in Albright Auditorium. Student a cappella groups and performers will sing songs that are usually presented by a single gender.

Finally, on Friday April 20, there will be a Day of Silence. This is a national day of observance each year where people make the decision to stay silent to protest the bullying of the LBGT community. This is a powerful experience for anyone who chooses to participate. To learn more about the Day of Silence, visit
