Gender-Bender Review
6-9 p.m., Necto Nightclub, 516 E. Liberty Street
Come join the University of Michigan’s own Stonewall Democrats at the event of the year. Bring some extra underwear because you’re going to laugh until you pee. And don’t forget your sense of awe, as you’re going to need it. Each ticket will cost $5, which will act as your ticket to the show, a ticket to free food, and your cover into Necto. Tickets can be purchased by contacting the Stonewall Democrats or at the door the evening of the event. Proceeds go toward The Transgender Student Scholarship.

LGBTQ Ally Training Program
10 a.m.-4 p.m., MSA Chambers
The LGBTQ Ally Training Program, started in 2005, seeks to empower members of the University community to be active allies to LGBTQ people. More than just a Safe Space program, the Ally Training Program uses a social justice framework to guide participants through a curriculum that bridges new knowledge of developmental theory to the lived experiences of LGBTQ people and Ally-identified people. All are welcome to attend, but pre-registration is required. To register for this session, please fill out the form found here: http://uuis.umich.edu/workshop2/workshopdet.cfm?wid=273
