GALA Events: Past, Present, and Future!

The annual GALA Theater Social was held on April 2nd at Actor’s Express in the King Plow Arts Center.   Alumni, students and guests gathered for wine and cheese and fun in the lobby before the event.  Our Event Planning Committee again chose an LGBT-themed work, “Marcus; or the Secret of Sweet” by Tarell Alvin McCraney.   The theme is the story of a young Black man coming to grips with his sexual  identity.  Of course, we could all relate.  It was a great Winter Social.

Save the date for our Summer Social.  On Thursday, July 30th, from 6:30 to 8:30 PM, we will party at Tin Lizzy’s Cantina at Emory Point.  Our group will have a separate area.  Your registration fee provides you with one beverage and heavy Tex-Mex appetizers.  So, plan on spending an evening with other GALA alums, students and guests to celebrate summer. To register for the event, please click here.  Tin Lizzy’s is within walking distance of campus, across from the CDC on Clifton Road.  Parking is free for 3 hours in the parking garage.  Current students  and  2014 & 2015 grads may attend as guests.

September 26th is another important save the date!  Our annual Blue Jean Brunch during Homecoming will be held at 11:00 AM in the Winship Ballroom in the Dobbs University Center.  This year our brunch will also serve as a fundraiser in support of the GALA Leadership Award and the Office of LGBT Life.  Casual attire is the order of the day, along with great food & drink.  Registration is requested.  Free parking is available in the Peavine or Fishburne parking decks.  Contact:  Latasia Woods at 404-727-8412, or
