    • May take more than just this semester to plan
  • Campaigning! 
    • For example, against the idea that men who have had sex with men can't donate blood
  • Current events:
    • CMC: tore down posters for the QRC party that said "Are we men or are we dancers?" - rewrote them to say "Your a man, act like one" (with the incorrect spelling and all)
      • What can we do? Nothing really at this point. No further aggressions after that, and it's being filed as a hate crime
    • Uganda - Anti-Homosexuality Bill says "imprison homosexuals for life"
      • Stephen Fry challenged the bill on Ugandan radio 
    • 1 of the prime candidates for pope, an African man, says "in my country, homosexuality is not a thing"
