Just a couple of sidenotes... The Pride Alliance is more than happy to help with housing for people making the pilgramage for Queerfest. Although we can make no concrete promises on such a wide scale as LJ, we can promise to do our best to find housing to fit your budget. Please email maray@student.umass.edu if you have questions and/or concerns.


And! Although April is now Gaypril, we certainly do not want to alienate anyone who does not identify with the word gay. (Gay just happens to lend itself nicely to the name of the month) Gaypril events more than welcome people of any sexual orientation and gender identity. If you don't feel there are types of activities missing, tell us. We are more than happy to recieve ideas for next year. We aim to make Gaypril and Queerfest as inclusive as possible - the more diverse of an audience, the more we learn about serving said diverse audience. Again, please email maray@student.umass.edu if you have questions and/or concerns.


Last sidenote, I promise! Volunteers are desperately needed for Queerfest. Plans are still in the works about special volunteer "priviledges" but I promise, they will be worth your while. So if you have spare time during the day, and hour or the whole day, we would love to to have your help. Once again, please email maray@student.umass.edu if you can volunteer or have questions and/or concerns.
