Welcome to Semester One 2015

Hello Sapphists,
It is my pleasure to welcome both our new and old members! I hope you have all had an enjoyable O’ week at UQ.

As it said on our flyer at Market Day: Sappho’s Sisters is an inclusive queer social group for all women, transgender, genderqueer, intersex, non-binary and all other sex and gender diverse identities.

It can be nerve-racking meeting a new group of people. That is why our first introductory event will be a very casual movie and pizza night. Our second event will be a games night. The games night will give us an opportunity to chat and get to know one another better.

Fingersmith Movie Night

Hello Lovelies!
I know it has been a while since the last blog post. Uni pressures are starting to intensify!
Our next social get-together will be a movie night!

The movie of choice is a two part BBC series adapted from Sarah Waters’ novel of the same name: Fingersmith.

London 1862. Sue Trinder, orphaned at birth, grows up among petty thieves – fingersmiths – under the rough but loving care of Mrs Sucksby and her ‘family’. But from the moment she draws breath, Sue’s fate is linked to that of another orphan growing up in a gloomy mansion not too many miles away.

We will have the movie night on Friday the 19th of September in the Women’s Room. Meeting at 5pm to gather pizza for dinner. We will aim to start the movie at 6pm as it is 3 hours long.

What: Fingersmith Movie Night
Where: UQ Women’s Room
When: Friday 19th September, 2014 at 5pm

Hope you are all keeping well!

Week 2 Movie night

Greetings Sapphists!

Meet and Greet went well last week. Everyone managed to find the room despite the maze of fences and construction. Much pizza, and many introductions were had.

This week we will be hosting a movie night on Friday August 8th at 5pm in the UQ Women’s room (The location can be negotiated if needed). Friday was decided upon as there is a Queer Careers event running on Thursday 6:30pm UQ Innes Room that you might be interested in!  

The movie on Friday won’t begin until around 6pm, and the two favourites for the night are Cloudburst (2011), and The Incredibly True Adventure of Two Girls in Love (1995). Come along and help us pick 😉

P.S. While this doesn’t directly relate to Sapphos, tomorrow night is ‘Camp Out’ at the Powerhouse (as part of the queer film festival). If you’re a film lover and have a little gay group to go along with, it does sound interesting… Find out more here.
