The highlight of the Pride Center's LGBT history month programming for October 2014  includes a campus visit by Janet Mock and Ryan Sallans. These two leaders and activists for the transgender community have both written important memoirs about their personal journeys. The Pride Center, in partnership with WGSS, is sponsoring a reading group for students, faculty, and staff to read and discuss their books (Redefining Realness by Janet Mock and Second Son by Ryan Sallans).
The following are the dates for the reading group discussion sessions:
Wednesday, October 29th, 4:15-5:15pm
In addition, there may be an opportunity for the reading group to meet with Janet and Ryan on October 23rd, when they are on campus.
If you are able to attend at least two of the sessions and would like to participate in the reading group, please let me know. We do have a limited number of books available for participants. We welcome and encourage undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, and staff to participate. Feel free to forward this invitation widely.

Souvenir-Fest for Children (Sponsored by LU UNICEF Club)
Make a difference in children's lives with a souvenir from your country or city. Please donate a souvenir to support local or global programs for children.  By supporting local programs, your souvenir will be presented to marginalized children in the South Side Bethlehem. Many of them have not traveled beyond Bethlehem and having a small present from a foreign country or another state will be something truly special.  By supporting a global program, your souvenir will be sold during the International Bazaar at Lehigh and all money collected will go directly to support UNICEF children's program worldwide to fight hunger, malnutrition, and promote access to education.  Please bring your souvenir to the Graduate Student Office or Office of International Scholars and Students.   

Follow us on Facebook: or email for any questions or inquires.
