My name is Jackie Chorush and I’m looking for a partner for the Intellectual Entrepreneurship Program this summer that was included in the latest Herald. I already have my business idea: a hostel which runs based on a cooperative business model. I’ve been living in a cooperative for a couple of years now and I’m pretty familiar with the local cooperative scene. But I’m still open to other suggestions. I think this will be a fun, useful project and a cool opportunity. Please get in touch with me! jchorush@utexas.edu

Students, apply to be a part of this small and engaged course to get upper-division credit and build performance-based education around LGBTQA people’s realities!

We are helping educate people and facilitate discussions that lead them to becoming advocates for LGBTQ rights.” (Peers for Pride Student Facilitator)

Apply now to be part of the 2015-16 Peers for Pride facilitation team!

Application & interview required to enroll in SW360/WGS345: Confronting LGBTQ Oppression. This two-semester course prepares student facilitators to create and facilitate interactive performances across the UT campus. No experience required! Peers for Pride is a program of the Gender & Sexuality Center: Serving Women & LGBTQA People.

Join a thoughtful and creative team to learn to use theatre for dialogue about LGBTQA realities.

You’ll learn to engage audience participants in performance-based dialogue around:

·      What empathy and ally-ship with LGBTQA people looks like;

·      What LGBTQA oppression looks like in daily experience;

·      How these systems of oppression are affected by racism, sexism, classism, & ableism; &

·      How to interrupt oppression and build dialogue with & among LGBTQA people.

Applications due by either April 15, 2015 (to schedule an interview before registration closes on May 1) or May 1, 2015 (to schedule an interview before the end of the semester on May 19).

“Peers for Pride has been one of my most meaningful experiences in college. I have become much more comfortable having difficult conversations with people, have an easier time expressing my opinion on different topics, and feel that I have grown not only as an ally to identities that I did not know much about before, but that I am now able to help others begin or advance their personal journey of allyship.” (Peers for Pride Student Facilitator)

We look forward to hearing from you!
