Wednesday, September 11: Monthly Meeting
Wednesday, September 11 at 12 noon in EL 102 will be our first monthly meeting in which we will discuss our plans for the upcoming 2013-2014 school year. Lunch will be provided for the first 25 attendees. We welcome everyone new and returning to join us. As always we encourage our straight allies to attend any and all events. Subsequent monthly meetings are held on the second Wednesday of every month in EL 102.
Wednesday, September 25: Coffee Talk
Our first Coffee Talk of the year will be at 5 PM on Wednesday, September 25 in Gazes 125. Coffee talks are informal round table discussions where we often bring a guest speaker in from the community to address a GLBT topic on medicine and social issues. Coffee talks are held on the last Wednesday of every month at Gazes auditorium located at 114 Doughty street. Guest speakers from past years included Shane Snowden from the Human Rights Campaign, Dr. O'Kennon on LGBT Mental Health Maintenace, Melissa Moore from We Are Family, Mark Jones, a historian and author who runs Black Cat Tours, Tom Robinson of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, members of South Carolina Equaliy and the Charleston School of Law, and insight from our own members on being Gay in the match. We thank all of our past speakers and look forward to another equally exciting line up of speakers for this upcoming school year.

Spring 2014: 5th Annual Second Chance Prom
Last year the MUSC hosted a very sucessful 5th annual second chance prom on March 26, 2012 raising over $2,000 for We are Family, a local organization supporting GLBT youth in the Charleston area. We hope to continue this tradition of increasing success at this event in 2014. The event was featured in the Post and Courier so check it out.
