One Word, One World!
“This change of policy responds to a proposal that was forwarded by the Inter-Residence Hall Council (IRHC) in collaboration with a student group working on gender neutral housing. Beginning Fall 2013, upperclass students will be able to form roommate groups and select spaces with any other person as potential roommates without regard to gender. Students who choose this option must meet certain requirements intended to maximize the housing options available to all students (i.e. all space in the room/suite must be assigned to students who indicate this preference or the room will default to a legal sex designation).”

Last year a list similar to this made its way around Tumblr, and when I went looking for one for 2012 (MOVING! SIX DAYS! TRES EXCITED!), I couldn’t find anything concrete. So I… made one myself? I left a few screenings (seriously, does someone want to see Puss in Boots?…
“Last Friday, two lesbian teens in a conservative part of Texas were brutally attacked. Mollie Olgin was shot and killed, and her girlfriend, Mary Chapa, was seriously wounded. Local police don’t have a suspect or motive, but the possibility of it being a hate crime is on everybody’s mind.
Queer Rising would like to invite other LGBT groups, the local LGBT community and its allies to Union Square for a candlelight vigil to show solidarity with and love for Mollie and Mary. Attendees are encouraged to bring candles, signs and flowers.
The vigil will include a speak-out against homophobia and violence. LGBT youth especially are encouraged to share their feelings about the attack and any personal experiences dealing with homophobia.

Three young Israelis, two guys and a girl, share an apartment in Tel Aviv’s hippest neighborhood: headstrong Lulu, who works in a bath products boutique; flamboyant Yali, who manages a trendy café; and brooding music store clerk Noam, who spends his weekends serving at checkpoints in the National Guard. When Noam meets and falls in love with a Palestinian man named Ashraf, he and his friends conspire to help Ashraf stay on in Tel Aviv illegally. They participate in a beach rally, celebrating a peaceful coexistence, and calling for an end to the occupation of Palestinian territories. But ultimately, their carefully constructed utopia is shattered by the political and social realities of the Middle East, and the constant outbursts of violence.
