Update: Worlds AIDS Day; LGBT staff Stammtisch (lunch)


World AIDS Day

Tomorrow in Holgate we’re holding our annual World AIDS Day stall! This will be at the Bi Visibility Day spot, rather than our former standard location – this is near to the doors on the Foss/Skell side of Holgate. We’ll be there 12:00-14:00 with ribbons, Christmas cards, leaflets and a donations box.

LGBT staff Stammtisch

In response to feedback that we should be less antisocial, we’re going to start holding monthly informal bring-your-own-lunch get togethers in the canteen, also known as Stammtisch. Whilst we’re (or I’m) calling this an LGBT staff Stammtisch, it will be open to everyone, allies and all. We’ll hold this on payday (22nd day of the month, or preceding Friday should it fall on a weekend), 12:30-13:15. As the next payday is just before the university closes for Christmas and New Year, we’ll skip this one and start on 22 January. There will be a reminder nearer the time, but if you’d like to be included in calendar invites, send me an email.
