Hey students, are you getting ready to come back to Williams, or join us for the first time!  I was busy this summer working on the queer.williams.edu website and planning some awesome events for the coming year.  Please go check out our added resources and descriptions of LGBTQ focused groups.

Did you know…

That Williams is an institutional member of the Consortium of Higher Education LGBT Resource Professionals Inc.?

The Consortium helps us stay connected with LGBT centers and staff at schools across the country.  These connections help us make sure that we are inline with policies and practices at some of the most supportive colleges and universities.

Additionally, our own justin adkins (Assistant Director of the Davis Center) is on the board of the Consortium as their Publications and Communications Chair.  This is his 5th year on the board.

Williams LGBT Threadline

A few years ago we commissioned a student to create a threadline for LGBTQ history at Williams.  Check it out here (Williams LGBTQ Threadline)

Trans* Inclusion at Williams a 2012 update

This year some exciting things happened on campus in regards to trans* inclusion:
  • Housing forms now have options to identify as trans* or write in your gender identity
  • We have a group on campus for students, staff, and faculty called Fabulous! (with the exclamation mark at the end)
  • Conversations with faculty departments and staff departments about trans* inclussion
  • We became part of the Toni Project
  • We are working to get the new campus map to include gender neutral bathrooms (it is being revised right now)
  • We have an agreement that all new buildings, and building renovations will include at least 1 gender neutral restroom.  The library plans were even re-drawn to include one!

For next year we are working on the following:
  • To make our health care plan include gender confirming procedures and hormones for staff and faculty (this was voted down in 2011)
  • To have our first Trans* Awareness week
  • Continue to work with the athletic department on implementing the new NESCAC trans* guidelines.
  • To increase the amount of trans* inclusion training on campus, especially with faculty

Ephs respond to homophobia – It is a time to be an ally!

Dear Fellow Ephs,

Today, we are reminded that our community is far from ideal. The homophobic graffiti found in Brooks House serves as a reminder that many of our peers struggle daily against discrimination and alienation because of their sexual orientation or gender identity.

It is a particularly trying moment for our friends, classmates, and teammates in the queer community. We are in the midst of Queer Pride Days, and the Twentieth Anniversary Celebration of the Dively Committee on Human Sexuality and Diversity begins this Friday. This should be a time to celebrate and validate our lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*, and queer-identified friends. It is a time to reach out to our fellow Ephs. It is a time to be an ally.

This week, let us take time to respond to the needs of our community. Let us take time to support the queer community’s hard work and creativity by showing up to the Queer Student Union’s general meeting, by attending the Sex Week programming, and by sitting in the audience at Dively events Jiz Lee and Sister Spit this weekend.

If you want to be an ally to the LGBTQ community, or if you need space to process recent events, we welcome your presence at any of this week’s events. All are open to the entire Williams community, and we extend an invitation to you all.

 

MONDAY:

5pm: Join justin adkins for Fabulous!, this week open to the entire community.

8pm-10pm: Members of the Dean’s Office and the Chaplain’s Office will be in Jenness House to mediate a safe space for all members of the Williams community. Additionally, a safe space (with snacks) will be facilitated by and for students in Brooks House at the same time.

Our festivities will begin on the evening of Friday 27th April when from 7:00- 9:30pm we will host Jiz Lee, a genderqueer performance artist known for work with The Crash Pad series.

She was voted ‘best doctor’ in 2007
in a San Francisco Bay Guardian’s readers’ poll and continues to be praised for her work on quality of life issues and the doctor-patient relationship.

Following cocktails and dinner at Mezze from 5:30-8:00, we will enjoy the work of “Sister Spit” (Paresky Theater, 8:30 pm), a queer feminist performance art collective that will bring their national tour to Williamstown for a multimedia showcase of fabulous novelists, film-makers, poets, performance artists, and much more.

Statement on Homophobic Incident

To the Williams Community,

We’re sad and angered to report that this morning a student noticed the word “fag” marked into the outside of his room door in Brooks House. It looks as if it might have been done with a fingernail.

It’s not known how long ago this took place. Another Brooks resident says that she saw it about a week ago, but, since it looked to be old, hadn’t reported it.

The college immediately notified the Williamstown Police Department, which has visited and photographed the scene, and is proceeding with an investigation. The Dean’s Office and Campus Safety and Security are also investigating, in order to identify and hold accountable whoever is responsible.

Anyone with knowledge that might help this process can contact Williamstown Police at 458-5646 or CSS at 597-4444 or through the anonymous tip site at http://security.williams.edu/?page_id=74 .

This kind of behavior is contrary to everything that we at Williams stand for. Actions that target individuals and groups are not only appalling in and of themselves, they have a corrosive effect on our entire community. And now, in particular, we stand firmly in solidarity with the students, faculty, and staff who’ve worked to organize Queer Pride Month activities on campus to the benefit of us all.

Support for students affected by this is available through the Dean’s Office, Multicultural Center, and Counseling Services. Deans and counselors on call can be reached through CSS at 597-4444 at any time

We’re in conversation with members of the QSU Steering Committee and other student leaders on ways for us as a community to respond. All who wish to gather for support and a first conversation about community response are welcome tonight at 8 p.m. in Hardy House living room.

Sincerely,

Adam Falk                                                Sarah Bolton
President                                                   Dean of the College

10 Things you need to know about Asexuality

1.    Asexuality is defined as a lack of sexual attraction; an asexual is someone who is not sexually attracted to anyone.
2.     Asexuals can be romantically attracted to other people, for example, a biromantic asexual is someone who is not sexually attracted to anyone, but is romantically attracted to males and females.
3.     There are also aromantic asexuals, who are not sexually or romantically attracted to anyone.
4.     Asexuality is a sexual orientation (like homosexuality, bisexuality, heterosexuality, etc.), asexuality is not:
a.     Celibacy, the decision to reframe from sexual contact, where asexuality is an orientation and there are asexuals who engage in a range of sexual contact with themselves and others
b.     A mental disorder, such as SAD (sexual aversion disorder) or HSDD (hypoactive sexual desire disorder). While the psychological community as a whole does not recognize asexuality, SAD and HSDD are mental conditions associated with anxiety towards sexual contact. An asexual may feel anxious due to societal pressures and reactions, but not due to the idea of sexual contact. An asexual in short, is just not interested.
c.     Caused by chemical and/or hormonal imbalance, all research on asexuality, on humans and other species, shows that asexual behavior is not a result of any physical imbalance.
5.     Asexuals are not afraid of intimacy. Many asexuals want and are in relationships, with not only other asexuals, but sexual people as well.
6.     Current statistics suggests that about 1% of the population is asexual, though many experts think that the number may be higher.
7.     There are asexuals who masturbate and enjoy sexually intimacy with others, while not being sexually attracted to anyone. Every asexual, just like every sexual person, is different and all fall on a wide range of wants and comfort level.
8.     Sadly, there are asexuals who feel out of place and broken, due to the lack of general knowledge concerning asexuality and cultural portrayals of sex and sexuality.
9.     Confused? Don’t worry; asexuality can be just as odd to a sexual person as sexuality can be to an asexual. As long as you are considerate and open minded, questions are more than welcome.
10.  And there are places you can go with said questions:
a.     Asexuality.org, AVEN’s website (Asexual Visibility and Education Network). Not only is this a great place for friends, family, people questioning, and those who are just curious, it also has tons of links to blogs, forums, community sites, etc. about and for asexuals.
b.     Wikipedia or the internet in general. Just type in asexual/ity, ignore the sites about asexual reproduction, and have a ball.
