Come hear me talk about Gran Fury and performing radical vulnerability!
And learn about trans* YouTubers and the uncanny (Liza), and about how post-modern dancers appropriated voguing (Ali), and about how Grindr is a homonormative tool used to erase POCs and fat bodies (Kellie).

Alpha Omicron Pi was founded by four Barnard College students in the class of 1898. However, in 1916, Barnard banned all sororities (then called fraternities) by a student vote of 244 to 30, “due to growing dissent among non-fraternity members who thought that the organizations promoted snobbishness and exclusivity” (source). In an effort to return to its roots, Alpha Omicron Pi is “recolonizing” Columbia University from February 22 to 24. Indeed, on its Facebook page and in its flyers, the sorority refers to this time as “Colonization Week”.
