Central Valley G.S.A Valentine’s Mixer!
Calling all Central Valley Gay Straight Alliance’s! You are invited to a Valentine’s Mixer brought to you by the Clovis North High School G.S.A! The Valentine’s Mixer will be held at the Downtown Community Arts Collective on February 12, 2011 from 6pm-9pm. Help us bring in the new year with some G.S.A. Pride! This mixer will provide a chance for Central Valley teens to interact with one another during the season of love!
The night will consist of food, drinks and music all with a splash of a Valentine’s theme. G.S.A members across the California Central Valley will be asked to wear a name tag when they arrive to the event. Your name tag will display what G.S.A campus you are from, as well as if you hold a G.S.A Officer position. If you are willing to partake in even more fun, put your relationship status and your sexual orientation in hopes that when the night ends you will have someone special to spend the true Valentine’s Day with! If you are Single and ready to mingle, Clovis North G.S.A has got you covered! Red roses will be available for purchase throughout the night to give to that special someone that has caught your eye! Taken but still looking for a good time? No worries! Bring your special someone to have a night out! The fun will begin right when you walk through the door!
If the party scene is not for you, slip into the lounge area where you can chat with G.S.A. members from across the Valley. Socializing and networking with other individuals that attend the event will provide a new opportunity to hear ideas to bring back to their G.S.A as well as making new friends.
Snacks and drinks will be provided to everyone who attends. There will be a live DJ playing your requests for the night from XO Productions, as well as a photo booth to take some fun pictures! All proceeds that the Clovis North G.S.A raises from this event will be going towards Scotti Maldonado’s fund to create an LGBT community center!
Volunteers and donations are needed to help make this a great event! Four to five volunteers are needed in the following areas.: set up before the event and cleanup after the event, supervision volunteers to ensure the event is maintained at a controlled level, as well as security volunteers to ensure that students are escorted to their vehicles safely after the event is over. Please contact Justin Kamimoto via email at firstname.lastname@example.org for all donations inquiries and volunteer interests.
The Clovis North Gay Straight Alliance hopes to see you and your G.S.A at the Valentine’s Mixer in February! Details for this event are also available on our Facebook Page: www.facebook.com/clovisnorthgsa located under events.

Transgender Day of Remembrance Events?
Did anyone go to the Transgender Day of Remembrance Events that Trans-e-motion was holding yesterday? If so let us know! We want to hear how it was!
Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it”
— Santayana (in regards to the Transgender Day of Remembrance)
Today is the Transgender Day of Remembrance. Let’s take a moment today and memorialize those who were killed due to anti-transgender hatred or prejudice. Each of these victims were victims of violence based on the bias against transgender people. Today, lets raise public awareness of hate crimes against transgender indivuduals and remember the lives of whom might otherwise be forgotten.
