Meeting Minutes May 3rd

  • No profs responding for dinner :( Maybe talk to Prof. Sparks and Prof. Su?
  • Big news this week:
    • Jason Collins, the current NBA player, came out 
      • First active athlete to come out
      • Robby Rogers, a soccer player, came out while he was not playing anymore. Now wants to join the LA Galaxy team
      • Why so few in professional sports?
        • Stigma against sports, so even if interested, queer people turn away from professional levels
        • Highly sexualized environment
  • LGBT-friendly traveling: American Airlines, Delta, Hilton
    • They have Gay and Lesbian travel pages online
    • Perhaps they allow for transfer of travel funds among partners, as opposed to just "family"

  1. To Whom it May Concern,

    My name is Jenn Petersen and I am reaching out to your organization on behalf of the Pastel Circus animation team.
    We are an organization comprised of eight students at California State University Channel Islands and Loyola Marymount University who are involved in a capstone project for the Fall semester of 2016. For our project we will be creating animations focusing on the representation of oppressed and under highlighted groups with a special focus on members of the LGBTQIA+ community.

    The reason we are reaching out to your club is because your involvement with the LGBTQIA+ community aligns with our team’s values and we would like to create a partnership between our project and your organization. This could include screenings of our animations at your events, and other collaborations of that nature depending on the individual needs of your groups.

    Please take a look at our Facebook page where you can see content we have created and learn a little bit more about our individual team members:

    Thank you for your time, we look forward to hearing from you.

    Jenn Petersen
