Wednesday 5pm: Chilled discussions in the women’s room followed by pizza at 6pm.
Saturday 11am: Study session in the SS&H library
Coming from a successful board games night on Tuesday and a trip to see “The Hours” in showing in the West End library on Thursday, this week we can look forward to a chilled meeting at uni on Wednesday, starting from 5 in the women’s room and moving on to pizza at 6pm. As an ice breaker, we’ll start the evening with some informal discussion topics. Some ideas we’ve had already include lesbian movies, good and bad, or stereotypes, but comment here or pop over to the facebook page to share your ideas on what we should talk about.
On subject of movies, the Brisbane Queer Film Festival is coming up. Here’s some discussion of some of the movies I’m keen to see, but judge for yourself at the festival’s website. If you’ve got some time on your hand, someone has kindly made a youtube playlist of a number of the trailers, but it’s a time suck, so be wary. We’ll organise a group to go see one movie, but if you’re keen to see something particular and want company, we’ll set up a poll on the facebook page so you can find like minded people and organise smaller outings.
In the meantime, there are three queer films showing at the French Film Festival: the subtext rich Farewell my Queen, a story about a French-Canadian trans*woman and her relationship with her wife called Laurence Anyways and a documentary about elderly French LGBT peeps called The Invisibles. I know people who are keen to see the latter two, so pipe up and we’ll hook you up with company if you’re also excited about French accents and LGBT history.
In the longer term, we’re hoping to organise a queer flash mob at the regular latin dance evening at Casablancas on Caxton St on Friday 12th of April (the evening begins with a lesson) and a movie night.
