Condom Couture 2014

Condom Couture is a fashion show that aims to recognize and provoke thought about gender inequity, global health, and HIV/AIDS. This fashion show entices student participation by challenging designers to create outfits out of condoms. Condom Couture is provocative and innovative and will engage students and members of the Austin community in the fight against AIDS.
For more information or to design your own couture outfit, visit the facebook page or email at:
Keep an eye out for QSA's design! It'll be strutting down the runway on our very own Vice Director, Qyle Jerro!

Next Meeting Wednesday

Hey y'all! Join us for our second meeting of the semester this Wednesday at 6:00 in Waggener (WAG) room 420.

Intersectionality: the intersections between different disenfranchised groups, and the interactions between multiple systems of oppression.

Thanks for coming out to the Town Hall a few weeks ago! Now, we're going to talk more in detail about two of the topics that were called out for: diversity training (of faculty and students) and an app that provides a tool against discrimination. We want to hear your thoughts about those topics, any resources you'd want to add, and how you'd like to get involved in making these things happen at UT. Let's work together to not only fight against discrimination, but also create educational tools and resources for our communities on campus!

Join us for meeting new friends, a discourse about what we can do with our collective power, and free pizza!
