COMMUNITY QUILT

Join the Radical Knitting Club for a quilt-making workshop and discussion as part of AACC’s celebration of Coming Out Week. The workshop, rooted in the idea of art as activism, will lead you through the creation of your own small quilt block. You’ll be invited to include your quilt block in the larger AACC Community Quilt, a multiyear community art project that will collect and assemble individually made quilt blocks created in workshops throughout the year that are held in conjunction with AACC’s diversity programming. 11 a.m.-12:15 p.m. CADE 205


COMING OUT PANEL

Gay-Straight Alliance members, AACC faculty and staff share stories of discovering and living in their LGBTQ identities. 1-2 p.m. Zoom - register online to attend


¿ESO ME HACE SONAR GAY?/DOES THIS MAKE ME SOUND GAY?

Recently, the idea of a “gayccent” has become a pop-culture phenomenon. However, studies have shown that an accent or "lisp" is not enough to clue listeners into a speaker’s supposed sexuality. If not the voice, what allows people to evaluate a speaker’s sexuality? Sit in on a journey through an analysis of real-life media clips and participant responses as we try to discover what really informs the way listeners perceive male sexuality in both English and Spanish. 7-8 p.m. Zoom – register online to attend
