Join allgo artist in residence Adelina Anthony in Man UP!?!
Friday, May 10th, 2013 8:00pm
Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center
600 River St., Austin, Tejas
$10 Tickets available here.
The award-winning and highly acclaimed queer Xicana artist, Adelina Anthony, who brought us the hilarious and thought-provoking La Hocicona Series (an epic ride with three sassy and critically engaging femmes-on-stage) will debut her latest solo comedy, MAN UP!?!
Created exclusively for allgo this new show plunges into queer people of color cultural taboos around those ever light-hearted and easy topics she loves to straddle: sexuality, religion, race/ethnicity, gender, gentrification and so much more! It’s a novel examination of macha-butch-boi and other masculine of center topics from a chameleon performer who keeps us enthralled with each new reincarnation on stage. She teams up again with her director of choice for solo comedies, the ultra-talented D’Lo. He directs this latest comedic performance of “Oh no, she didn’t… oh, yes, she did, comadre!”
Remember-the real question about our flyer is not: “Is she taking those pants off or putting them on?” It’s where… and there’s only one answer: Austin, Tejas on May 10th, 2013!
WGS f340 U.S. Lesbian and Gay History, 20th Century
1000 to 1130am in BUR 128
Taught by CWGS Associate Director, Dr. Mollie Marchione
What can we learn from U.S. history about gender and sexuality?
This course will use primary and secondary readings, films, class discussion, and written assignments to explore this question as we trace the social, cultural, and political history of same-sex desire in the U.S., primarily in the 20th century.
Major topics include the growth of lesbian and gay communities or sub-cultures and the persistence of racial, class and gender differences within and among them; the changing representation of homosexuality in the mass media.
The course will familiarize students with some of the classic texts in the field as well as recent and varied writings on the history of sexuality, focusing on the experiences, ideas, and conflicts that have shaped modern lesbian and gay identities.
Partially fulfills legislative requirement for American history.
May be counted toward the writing flag requirement. May be counted toward the cultural diversity flag requirement.

Call for LGBTQ Stories!! Safe Schools Texas is currently seeking story submissions for their forthcoming resource website. Voices stories are written from the perspective of LGBTQ students, describing an instance wherein they witnessed significant ally action by an educator. Voices stories may be submitted by current students as well as alumni, and can discuss an experience taking place during any grade level. Voices stories can be either about a time when an educator acted as an ally on your behalf, or about a time when you witnessed this action in the service of others. Voices stories are designed specifically to allow educators a chance to understand the impact and influence their actions have on both the lives of their LGBTQ students, as well as how they help to encourage and foster future allies. Stories should be limited to no more than 500 words and can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org
We could shorten or lengthen this depending on the space allowed. We can also go back and edit it if there is anything that seems unclear. Will this be a print or electronic bulletin? Because if it is electronic we could include a link to a streamlined submission web page that our web designer is in the process of creating for us. If so, we could get you that link as quickly as possible, probably shortly after thanksgiving. Then we would be able to replace the email address in the
