It’s that time of the month once again when we meet as members at office for social Friday. Social Friday offers safe space where we come and relax; unwind after stressful weeks of working. It forges solidarity, sisterhood, entertainment and at the same time educating members. This Friday we shall engage in the following activities.
We shall hold a meeting at 2:00pm to discuss the progress of the economic empowerment, where members will share the achievements and challenges faced during the implementation of their projects, make recommendations and forge a way forward.
FARUG has grown in numbers since our last Annual General Meeting and leadership institute and several other members joined FARUG right before the leadership institute. It was an intense workshop and therefore we want to take time off tomorrow and review member’s expectations of the organization and what they plan to do for their beloved organization.
As usual, movies will be screening in the resource center the entire time.
1) “Screaming Queens” 4:00pm
Is a tale of a little known story of the first acts of collective violent resistance to queer people in the United States. Three years before the famous Stonewall Inn raid.
2) “From Criminality to Equality” 5:00pm
40years of Lesbian and gay movement history in Canada from 1969 to 2009; a complete collection of “stand together”, “The queer nineties”, “politics of the heart” and “The end of second class”.
3) “And then came Lola” 8:00pm
We shall wind up with a fun lesbian movie. Lola photograopher races to get a crucial meeting on time. Her job and girlfriend; casey are on the line. Cassey in the meantime is falling into the arms of her ex. Higly entertaining. A must watch.
Drinks will be provided. However members are requested to be kind as to come along with drinks since we are operating on a tight budget and all we can afford for now is a beer each, a streaming pot of Malwa and sodas.two members have volunteered to coordinate the session and also moderate topics.
Unlike the past social Fridays which would go on until late, this Friday meeting will end at 9:30 strictly.
We are looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow.
