Hey everyone!

We're making pride gear at this week's EQA meeting, so you should all stop by and help out!

Also, we're going to be making EQA t-shirts. If you want one, you can bring in a blank shirt, we'll bring the iron-ons and an iron. Please respond here and tell us if you want one though, so we know how many transfers to print.

Question: [Apr. 20th, 2007|04:58 pm]
Evergreen Queer Alliance

ironmysandwich
I don't mean to monopolize your friends page, but most of you like having things to read to help procrastinate your homework, right?

So here's a question for everyone. On Monday of Pride Week (week 8), we're planning on showing a film with the GLA (Greener Living Association). We were trying to find a good bisexual-pride movie, but most bisexual films we found were also polyamorous and we didn't want to promote the stereotype that all bisexuals are also poly. So we looked for alternatives.

The two that were brought up were D.E.B.S. which is a comedy, kind of ridiculous in ways, but a lot of fun. The other is Trembling Before G-D which is a more emotionally based film about Jewish homosexuals trying to harmonize their faith with their sexual orientation. Obviously, they are vastly different films. Please vote for one or the other, or offer up a different alternative altogether. For the record, we are showing Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Wednesday with Mindscreen (hopefully), and we were hence looking towards the serious side of queer film for Monday. This line of thought can be honored or ignored, either is fine by me.

Let us know what you think!

As most of you know by now, the Domestic Partnership Bill passed in the legislature. The governor will be signing it into law this Saturday at 9:30am in the State Reception Room (3rd floor of the Capitol Building). Most everything at the capitol is open to the public and there's bound to be lots of press and other queer people running around, so you may want to check it out.

If you're a Washington resident and your legislators voted in favor of this bill, send them a thank you (if, of course, you are happy it went through...if not, that's a different story entirely).

Anonymous Question [Apr. 6th, 2007|01:22 pm]
Evergreen Queer Alliance

ironmysandwich
As some of you know, the EQA has an anonymous question jar in front to the office. We haven't received very many questions there this year (please ask some if you have any!), but we received one that is fairly controversial. We want to be able to provide a well-articulated non-biased answer on our website, so we recently decided to post the question on here and see what all of you have to say.

The question is, "Why do lesbians and gays have an ever-growing prejudice against bisexuals?"

The answer we have so far, based on past EQA discussions, is, "First off, we would like to state that not ALL lesbians and gays have a prejudice against bisexuals and that the EQA does not condone such prejudice, whatever the reason. That being said, we have heard a few things that could cause an undue prejudice against bisexual people.

"In many instances (high school in particular), heterosexual people have "come out" as bisexual for a variety of personal reasons. This has led some members of the queer community to question the validity of the bisexual orientation. This is an incorrect assumption. There are many people who are actually bisexual and this is just as valid an orientation as heterosexuality or homosexuality (or any other variation!).

"Another possible cause is that bisexual people who are in a relationship with a person of the opposite sex are invisible minorities. In actuality, they are part of the queer community, but will not be perceived as such walking down the street holding hands with their significant other. Everyone wants to be able to be seen in public with their partner without fear of discrimination. This could lead to bitterness and unwarranted prejudice if bisexuals are seen as using heterosexual privilege."

Please discuss!
