I hope you all are having lovely and successful summers! In preparation for a BIG year for QueerWes next year, WE’RE GONNA HAVE ELECTIONS. We’re going to expand leadership so the work is divided up, more focused, and more people can be involved in the group’s decisions. EVERYONE is welcome to apply (freshmen, you too!).
