Nightline series on GLBT issues airs next week
May 13, 2002

ABC Television Network
PRESS RELEASE - NEWS - NIGHTLINE SERIES ON GAY LIFE, "A MATTER OF
CHOICE?"
(5/20-24)

TED KOPPEL WILL ANCHOR A FIVE-PART "NIGHTLINE" SERIES ON GAY
LIFE, "A MATTER
OF CHOICE?," BEGINNING MONDAY, MAY 20 ON ABC
Series Concludes With a 90-Minute Town Meeting on Friday, May 24

ABC News' "Nightline" will broadcast a special five-part series exploring
the lives of gay and lesbian people in America, beginning Monday, May 20. "A
Matter of Choice?," reported and anchored by Ted Koppel, takes an in-depth
look at the complexities of the gay experience, from senior citizens facing
unique challenges in their twilight years to teenagers grappling with issues
of sexual identity. At a time when the American Catholic Church is debating
whether gays should be allowed into the priesthood, this series will focus
on the many gay men and women whose lives do not normally attract the
media's attention. "A Matter of Choice?" is scheduled to air on "Nightline"
MONDAY, MAY 20 - FRIDAY, MAY 24 (11:35 p.m. ET), on the ABC Television
Network.

"Television has tended to focus -- and Nightline has been no exception -- on
the issue of AIDS and on hate crimes. Television in general tends to focus
only on the 'out and loud' sector of the gay community, what we have come to
call the first 10 rows in the gay pride parade. This series will show a part
of the gay community not often seen on television. As our viewers will see,
the sexual aspect of gay relationships merely represents a small percentage
of gay life. We were stunned to discover how many gays and lesbians,
especially older people, spend many years of their lives in heterosexual
marriages, raising children and seeing their children have children of their
own," said Nightline anchor and managing editor Ted Koppel.

The five-part series will conclude with a live, 90-minute town meeting
anchored by Ted Koppel from Roanoke, Virginia. On September 22, 2000, a hate
crime in Roanoke -- the murder of a man in a local gay bar -- galvanized a
once fearful gay community to take a visible and vocal stand against
violence. The local newspaper published a series of stories on Roanoke's gay
community, which triggered strong reactions in the community, including
cancelled subscriptions and lost advertising. Against the backdrop of the
murder and a frank newspaper series, Roanoke citizens engaged in a very
public conversation about homosexuality, and the "Nightline" town meeting
will continue that conversation.

The series begins Monday, May 20, with a conversation with residents of a
retirement community near Bradenton, Florida. The Palms of Manasota is the
nation's first gay and lesbian retirement community, and many of the
residents in this community spent a large part of their lives trying to live
"straight," often while married. These gay retirees speak honestly and
openly with "Nightline" about coming to terms with their sexuality.

"A Matter of Choice?" then examines the gay community through the eyes of
the citizens of Roanoke, Virginia. On Tuesday, May 21, "Nightline" reports
on the murder of Danny Overstreet in a gay bar in Roanoke, and the reaction
to a newspaper series on the gay community published by the local paper in
the wake of the murder. Mr. Koppel will also have a discussion about
homosexuality with four Roanoke-area religious leaders: a Methodist, a
Muslim, a Roman Catholic and a Southern Baptist.

On Wednesday, May 22, "Nightline" profiles two sets of parents in the
Roanoke area: a lesbian couple raising a child they had by artificial
insemination and a second couple, devout Southern Baptists, raising their
children in an environment that reflects their moral values. The program
also profiles a former Roanoke Commonwealth Attorney who had to prosecute
gays under Virginia state laws while he was living a secret gay life. He
then became a defense attorney for people charged under Virginia's sodomy
and solicitation laws.

Gay teenagers are the focus of "A Matter of Choice?" on Thursday, May 23.
The program profiles a young lesbian whose own difficult experience coming
out as a teenager has inspired her to work with gay teens. Mr. Koppel also
speaks with gay and lesbian teenagers from the Roanoke area who are
grappling with their own issues of sexual identity.
The series concludes Friday, May 24, with the live, 90-minute town meeting
in Roanoke, anchored by Mr. Koppel.

Ted Koppel is the anchor and managing editor of "Nightline." Tom Bettag and
Leroy Sievers are the executive producers. "Nightline" airs weeknights at
11:35 p.m., ET, on the ABC Television Network.

Photography for "A Matter of Choice?" is available at or by calling (212)

Action Alert: Oppose HR4700, Bush Welfare Bill

HEY LGBTSU! Let's take some action on this.. - Ben :)

Ben,

Pass this along to the group!! Read the attached news release from NGTLF
and foward it with a letter I wrote which is right below this. They can cut
and paste the following:

I'm asking Representative Susan Davis to VOTE NO on HR 4700, the Republican
welfare reform bill. This bill is unworkable for states and fails to move
families out of poverty. Furthermore the bill does not take into account the
reality of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people. The problems with
this bill are numerous. Specifically for GLBT people, it would provide funds
for "healthy marriage promotion
activities" and "fatherhood programs", which I would not be included in.It
would continue to provide funding for abstinence-only education in which I
oppose. I am a loyal voter of yours and hopefully I will not have to find
another candidate to choose from this November. Please remember that I have
supported you with my vote and hopefully I will not have to change my
support. Thank you for your positive support of LGBT rights (so far)!

Any questions let me know!!

Jeff

Puerto Vallarta Summer Student•Teacher Special!!!!

I wanted to offer again to the students & teachers our OUTRAGEOUS special
deals to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - one of THE HOTTEST, Fastest Growing
Gay-Friendly Tropical Paradises!!! We're now up to 13 clubs & bars, 3
beaches, restaurants that rival San Francisco & NY at a fraction of the cost
& WONDERFUL locals!!! ALL this located in an area that is VERY safe (as long
as you're not doin' foolish things!!) & that's a 10-15 minute WALK from one
end to the next!!!! (we do NOT put you in mainstream tourist hotels that are
15-40 minutes away from the gay-friendly area where you get to vacation with
mom, pops, granny, kiddies, eat mediocre food while paying San Francisco
hotel prices AND . . . they don't allow you to bring "guests" back!!! We
KNOW you deserve & desire MUCH MORE than that!!)

Until Nov. 22 we have 1-bedroom condos at G1 - a "straight-friendly" (WAYYYY
more gay than straight!! EVERYONE's welcome that believes in treating each
other with equal respect!!) condo/hotel located just one block behind the gay
beach starting as low as $35/night for 1-2 people (+ 17% hotel tax). This is
a 1-bedroom with a double or king bed in the bedroom PLUS a REAL double bed
(not an uncomfortable sofabed!!) in the livingroom, kitchenette, a/c &
balcony with a pool view (in the cheapo rooms) up to SPECTACULAR bay views!!
GREAT for 2 buds traveling together that want privacy. They also have the
largest pool of any of the gay properties!!! <A
HREF="http://www.DoinItRight.com/G1.shtml">www.DoinItRight.com/G1.shtml</A> )


We also have 2-bedroom condos in beachfront condo complexes in the gay area
starting as low as $95/night (tax INCLUDED on the non-gay properties) for up
to 4 people till Sept. 30 <A
HREF="http://www.doinitright.com/condo_vistadelsol.shtml">

park in long-term parking. Otherwise - the fastest way is out of TJ [though
it's more expensive] & another often decent price though ya get there late -
America West from SD through Phoenix). RECENTLY I've seen air starting at
$245 which INCLUDES the $85 in taxes (that's for travel going TO Vallarta on

Press Release: UCR Student Peace and Human Rights Coalition Condemns
Expulsions of Palestinian Rights Activists from University of California
ucrresistance@yahoo.com (909) 285-2309

     The University of California is at it again, harassing and intimidating
activists for Palestinian rights.
     Having banned, and then, under grass-roots pressure, reversed its ban
of Students for Justice in Palestine at Berkeley, having threatened SJP
students with expulsion, having failed to defend a UCB instructor attacked
in the Wall Street Journal for planning to teach the "Politics of and
Poetics of Palestinian Resistance," they have now expelled two members of
the International Solidarity Movement (ISM) from the University.
     On May 17th, parents of Nauman Zaidi of UC Riverside received a letter
explaining that their son had been expelled from the Education Abroad
Program and would not be allowed to graduate this summer as planned. Robert
O'Neill's parents received a similar letter around the same time. The
students would have 48 hours to appeal. The fact that both are in Israeli
jail and would be unable to appeal apparently made no impression on UC
higher ups. The 48 hours passed; the students were expelled.
     Recently, UC Riverside found it in their hearts to allow a convicted
drug dealer to graduate. Zaidi's and O'Neill's offense? Bringing food and
water last month to those hemmed in by the Israeli siege of the Church of
the Nativity - birthplace of Jesus -- in Bethlehem. In that siege, according
to Israel Shamir: "forty monks and priests remained on duty in the church,
together with 200 refugees. For a month, the Israelis did not allow anyone
to bring food or water to the besieged. People starved and died, trying to
survive on rainwater boiled with lemon leaves and grass. Stench of corpses
and of infected wounds filled the old church. State-of-the-art cameras
assisted sharpshooters who hung outside and shot at every moving figure.
They killed monks and priests as well as refugees. Even before the siege,
they shot dead a choir boy; on Easter Saturday -- May 4 -- they murdered
another churchman on duty."
     Shamir continues: "In this dark hour, ISM rode in. As the Holy Land
prepared for Good Friday two dozen ISM volunteers divided into two groups:
one of them staged a diversion. While Israeli soldiers were taken aback by
their foolhardy bravery and proceeded to capture them, the second group [-
including Nauman Zaidi and Robert O'Neill --] rushed forward, and entered
the gates of the church. They brought with them some food and water to the
starving beleaguered refugees, something to look forward to on Easter
Sunday." The University's view of all this? Zaidi and O'Neill were
"someplace dangerous," and they had signed a contract not to go "anyplace
dangerous" while they were in the study abroad program. Rather than praise
and celebrate the bravery of these students, the University has gone out of
its way to punish them. In Zaidi's case, normal student disciplinary
process was completely short-circuited by the UC Office of the President.
In fact, the local student conduct officer was unaware of Zaidi's expulsion
until he read it in the newspaper.
Local activists at UCR, Zaidi's campus of origin, are planning a
demonstration for May 22 at noon at the belltower on the two students
behalf.

Hello Everyone,
On Sunday May 19th, the leadership of the NAACP of San Diego County and SDSU students
distributed information near the Women's Studies graduation concerning my being denied tenure
and promotion despite my outstanding record in teaching, service and professional growth. On
Monday May 20th, representatives of the NAACP and SDSU students held a press conference
at SDSU. The press conference was televised by Channel 10 and Fox News. Press Release
and Statement are available through the NAACP.

SDSU/CSU representatives are asking to go into mediation. The last time I went into a mediated
meeting, it turned out to be a Women's Studies ambush. I am not interested in getting trapped in
a similar situation with University lawyers. Particularly given the health situation this has created
for me. My attorneys seem to think it's a good idea to at least try.

Does anyone have any information about/familiarity with the mediation process that would be
helpful? What are the advantages/disadvantages for the plaintiff? The University? The
attorneys? The mediator? What resources are available regarding this process that are a
&quot;must know &quot; for the plaintiff ?

Time is of the essence because the university would like the mediation to take place as quickly as
possible. that raises another red flag for me. I've been trying to get university assistance for
years to no avail.

Thanks for any information. You can also email me at Themorgangirl@aol.com. Thanks, Pat
Washington

ATTENTION LGBTSU:
Hugh Trigg, known to many as "Brother Hugh", has asked me to make it
publicly known that he has resigned his affiliation with the LGBTSU at SDSU.
He also wanted it to be known that he is no longer a part of San Diego's
LGBT community. He has given me permission to explain his reasoning for
this, and he also has a few more things to say, but I refuse to air those
comments publicly. Please contact me if you would like further

"IndigoAzure" <indigoazure@yahoo.com>

Sorry about the solicitation, I should have introduced myself..

Hello everyone,

I posted an e-mail yestarday about some lesbian themed merchandise
and I must apologize for not introducing myself first. I am a
lesbian living in upstate NY and I enjoy addressing issues concerning
the gay community. I run a small record label called Gravity Groove
Records promoting tribal sharing of life through song and I am an
artist on the label. My song content deals a lot with homosexual
issues and in fact, I just released a song called "Lesbian". I also
deal with issues concerning people of color and African history.
Last year I took it a step further and began an independent film
company called Ijaba Films. I am working on a documentary about
black sexuality. I have conducted many interviews here in the U.S.
and will take on the difficult task of attempting to conduct
interviews in Ghana, Africa in August, although I have been advised
this may be impossible. I have also been an artist over the years,
writing poetry, singing songs, drawing, ect. And I have taken some
of my drawings and computer graphics work and have applied them to
merchandise available a cafepress.com. I am very proud of my work
and would like to share it with you. I am also working on being a
part of a movement to promote love and unity, and the truthful
retelling of history among our young people and through my work as a
singer and filmmaker, I can do that. I am also in the process of
creating socially aware merchandise for our young ones. I am
producing Tribal Kids and Tribal Teens wear and I hope to include on
the merchandise, poems and phrases that promote, love, unity,
responsiblity, humanity, tribalism benefits, and community.


Thank you all for you patience and again I apologize for not doing
this before I posted about the t-shirts for sale.

Re: Black Thing Good !!! (fwd)

"BCC" for bevity. Pat Washington

At 01:01 AM 6/24/2002 -0500, you wrote:

A very. . . . revealing story is told about a group of white people
who were fed up with African Americans, so they joined together and wish
themselves away. They passed through a deep dark tunnel and emerged in sort
of a twilight zone where there is an America without black people.

At first these white people breathed a sigh of relief. At last, they say, no
more crime, drugs, violence and welfare. All of the blacks have gone!!

Then suddenly, reality sets in. The "NEW AMERICA" is not America at all only
a barren land! There are very few crops that have flourished because the
nation was built on a slave-supported system.

There are no cities with tall skyscrapers because Alexander Mils, a black
man, invented the Elevator, and without it one finds great difficulty
reaching high floors.

There are few if any cars because Richard Spikes, a black man, invented the
Automatic Gear Shift. Joseph Gammell, also black, invented the Super Charge
System for Internal Combustion Engines, and Garrett A. Morgan invented the
Traffic Signals. Furthermore, one could not use the Rapid Transit System
because its precursor was the electric trolley, which was invented by
another black man by the name of Elbert R.Robinson.
Even if there were streets on which cars and a rapid transit system could
operate, they were cluttered with paper because an African American, Charles
Brooks, invented the Street Sweeper.

There were few if any newspapers, magazines and books because John Love
invented the Pencil Sharpener, William Purvis invented the Fountain Pen, Lee
Burridge invented the Type Writing Machine and W. A. Lovette invented the
Advanced Printing Press. They were all you guessed it, black.

Even if Americans could write their letters, articles and books, they would
not have been transported by mail because William Barry invented the
Postmarking and Canceling Machine, William Purvis invented the Hand Stamp
and Phillip Downing invented the Letter Drop.

The lawns were brown and wilted because Joseph Smith invented the Lawn
Sprinkler and John Burr the Lawn Mower.

When they entered their homes, they found them to be poorly ventilated and
poorly heated. You see, Frederick Jones invented the Air Conditioner and
Alice Parker the Heating Furnace.

Their homes were also dim. But of course, Lewis Latimer invented the
Electric Lamp; Michael Harvey invented the Lantern and Granville T. Woods
invented the Automatic Cut-off Switch. Their homes were also filthy because
Thomas W. Steward invented the Mop and Lloyd P. Ray, the Dust Pan.

Their children met them at the doorbarefooted, shabby, motley and
unkempt.But what could one expect? Jan E.Matzelinger invented the Shoe
Lasting Machine, Walter Sammons invented the Comb,Sarah Boone invented the
Ironing Board and George T. Samon invented the Clothes Dryer.

Finally, they were resigned to at least have dinner amidst all of this
turmoil. But here again, the food had spoiled because another black man,
John Standard, invented the refrigerator.

Now, isn't that something? What would this world be like without the
contributions of Black people?

Martin Luther King, Jr. said "that by the time we leave for work we have
been dependent on half the world & modern America is created by dependencies
on the inventions from the minds of Black folks".

Black history includes more than just slavery, Frederick Douglass, Martin
Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, Marcus Garvey and W.E.B. Dubois.

Help for the Lavender magazine!!

Date: Sun, 30 Jun 2002 00:02:16 -0700 (PDT)

As most of you all know, I am currently writing for the Lavender magazine
and i am always in need of some great info from the friendly lesbian
community! well ladies, this week's article is based on a very personal
topic...LESBIAN BED DEATH... and i need YOU to help me out. instead of
collecting boring old stories and health facts from books, i thought that i
would reach out to my friends to see if anyone is willing to speak up on
behalf ;) hehehe.

what IS lesbian bed death? what do you know about it? have you experienced
it? has a friend? how did it occur? how did you/they overcome it? do you
think that every single lesbian couple is doomed? are lesbians the only
victims of bed death? how long does a couple have before they are dead in
bed?

these are all really great questions that i need answered in order to write
my article this week!! any help would be greatly appreciated. if you feel
too weird about telling me your name, then feel free to send it
anonymously...or under an alias....hehehe

thank you! i love you grrrls!!!! feel free to pass this email on!

~Lisa Ariganello~
PS: did you all read my last article, i mentioned everyone that helped me!

HOMOPHOBES STRIKE LGBTSU AGAIN!

Hello LGBTSU!
On Thursday, June 27 at 8:12 AM a derogatory message was left on the
LGBTSU's office voice mail system. The caller had the voice of a male,
probably college-aged, and said the words "Homos, Fags, Queers" and then
there was laughter in the background. While it was probably just some
"dumb" college guys messing around, and really not the worst thing we could
experience - it is still unacceptable. This is not the first time this type
of thing has happened, but the first time in several months. LGBTSU and the
University are handling the situation. University Police have gotten
involved and TNS is trying to trace the call. We thank Associated Students,
and the University for there quick and helpful repsonses. Hopefully we can
show these boys that these types of pranks will NOT be tolerated at SDSU...
Email me back for more information...

Happy International "Gay and Lesbian Pride Day" (Sun June 30).

Fwd: Re: [SDSULGBTSU] HOMOPHOBES STRIKE LGBTSU AGAIN!

Hello Ben and crew-
Thanks for this info. I feel there are a couple things, you could keep
in mind, while they taunt with satanic laughter there. One- try to remember
that scientifically, psychologically and spiritually you are likely (95%
chance) dealing with at least one if not more homophobic homosexuals with
the phone call problem who are insecure and are trying to hide their own
guilt and feelings of shame from their cronies. My experience has been to
say nothing on the machine or when answering the phone until the party on
the other end speaks first... Then only reply with questions you wish to be
answered instead of the usual giving/accepting answering machine message- Is
anyone having a personal time with this problem at home or in a dorm... For
the info on the studies- go to "Master's and Johnson's Human Sexuality
Studies" and look for the info regarding homophobia- (95% are latente
homosexuals and the other 5% are mentally ill- check this out- it is VERY
enlightening). One thing I !
used to ask these mixed up assholes was whether "their Daddies were still
fukkin 'em in the ass?!?!" this always seemed to shut them up- I wonder what
they went home and told mommy and daddy? What could they say? lol
That idea aside- because I'm just big and tough and so they wouldn't
bother me again... (KIDS- Don't try this at home!!!) <grin> How about
investing in some security measures- such as - CALLER ID...! And then route
your calls thru an inexpensive computer program that makes you sound like
IBM on the line... That won't be hard... Make sure the voices are full of
authority and that the menu offers MANY options for MANY people at desks
(Affirming a larger number of supportive individuals- strength in
numbers)... and don't forget a short sweet message about the Civil Rights of
American Citizens and a reminder of the 3 year prison sentence connected
with all civil rights violations (per count)... also announce the mandatory
penalties for hate crimes- especially via wire where the CIA? FBI? Secret
Service? Dept. of Homeland Security is involved... teehee... Terrorism
charges... Doesn't seem like a media announcement regarding this hatred
would be out of place at this time- forge!
t CBS, UPN, NBC, FOX (har-har from the country club set)- best bet might be
a PBS announcement or local San Diego State Network expose'... What do you
think. Educate the entire campus about the fact that these threats are
coming, according to "Master's and Johnson's Clinical Human Sexual Studies",
95 % from Homosexual Homophobics and the rest are mentally ill. A simple
fact of life heterosexuals want to ignore or forget and a fact that most
queers are not aware of either. Education and the Pen ARE your best weapons
against this kind of ignorance. I'm sure you have a number of associates who
can get this info published and in better form than what I have done. I hope
it is helpful.
One other thing that follows is that you alert your staff to keep an eye
out for the safety of all of you- move in pairs, record license plates when
anything strange happens or any other seemingly dismissable problems- so you
can show a pattern later if the need arises. Tell them to take note even if
they think it is funny and who is there- Where? When(exactly)... Witnesses-
where they were standing- what (exactly was said)... phone
problems/EVERYTHING that seems unusual or hate-oriented - even jokes that
seem harmless. Eventually you will figure out who the bastards are and all
of you can be less afraid. I promise the BS WILL STOP- no need to give them
reason to get crazy again- just document in secret and compare notes- the
word will get out to them and they will be afraid of exposure... likely
someone who doesn't attend a lot of meetings but who is well-liked by your
group or VERY silent while there is a member of that group of phobic
homosexuals and is in need of a sm!
oke-screen... There IS something you can do- you have already taken control
of a lot of political clout- use it to your advantage shamelessly... just
suggestions... You already have a great agenda and your leadership is
strong- Educate 'em- nothing to fear here.
Best Regards. Baron- SD, CA

PS- You sure have nice gatherings- celebrate your togetherness and support
each other- there are other games that they try too- stay one step ahead- I
know you can- Keep us informed.

BTW- Scientific fact: A yawn is a sexual response...hehehe- LOL but true!

I need your help - please please please!!!!

LGBTSU has come across a fundrasing opportunity with a Hillcrest bar and we
are GUARANTEED to make $500... The owner says whatever profits we make,
he'll just round it up to $500! Plus our name and logo will be printed on
this popular bar's Pride advertising and flyers. We are guaranteed $$ and
publicity!

The catcch is that this opportunity is during the Pride Parade. But the
fundraiser will take place OUTDOORS along the PARADE ROUTE! You'll be
surrounded by BEAUTIFUL San Diego people, enjoying the BEAUTIFUL day.
Not all of you will be able to be on our parade float due to costuming
reasons, etc - so this would be a great opporutnity for those of you that
can't/don't want to be in the parade. We need about 5 or 6 21+ year old
people to help out... Those of you who are under 18 can help too, just not
in the actual fundraising area. You are needed to walk the parade route
passing out fliers inviting people to this popular area.

The details of this fundraiser are CLASSIFIED right now as the owners of the
bar are doing something really cool, that hasn't been done before - and we
are going to be a part of it...

SO please LET ME KNOW ASAP if you or your friends, or family, or ANYONE can
help us out... I'll throw in a free LGBTSU T-Shirt for anyone that
helps.........

I need to know ASAP! This would be a great way for you and your friends to

TWO HATE CRIMES IN SAN DIEGO

Hello LGBTSU!
Please read about the following two hate crime incidents happening in very
close proximity to each other in Hillcrest... If you have any information
PLEASE contact SDPD. The first incident happened to one of our very own
memebers...
We send this to make you wary of the fact that hate crimes are still going
on, and to see if anyone has any information...
-------------------
On Saturday, May 18, 2002 at approximately 6 PM LGBTSU member James "Jim"
Neill was walking down Centre Street near University Avenue. Suddenly, he
was attacked from behind by 2 males. He possibly heard the word "faggot"
being used. The man beat him up, knocked out his tooth, and stole his
wallet. Jim did report the incident to the police. If you have any further
information contact the LGBTSU office at 619-594-2737 (ask for Jim) or call
the San Diego Police Department..
------------------
*FROM SD-GLBT Email List*
Since no one else seems to think this is a big deal, I am sending you
this notice because I do think it needs more attention.
On Wend June 26 at 3:00 pm one of our Transgendered Spanish girls was
walking on Park nearly to University on the North West Corner when she was
attacked from behind by at least 2 males. They were English speaking and
yelling things at her that she did not understand except the F word.
This is a very busy intersection and someone must have seen this
happen. The girl was knocked down and hit several times in the head and
face. She did not see her attackers and left the area on foot very quickly.
She was dressed in a bluish skirt and red blouse. This area is a block from
the Gay and Lesbian Center.
This is not just about our T girl, it is about all of us. There are bad
people out on our streets that feel they can attack someone in broad
daylight and get away with it, who will be next. We need witnesses. There is
a police report, and the detective in charge is Ron Hall 692-4828. We
cannot give out the girls name because her children do not know about her.
We call her M and the detective will know.
Thanks Evelyn

LESS e-mail from LGBTSU - READ THIS!!! Less e-mail overload!!! :)
Hello LGBTSU E-mail List subscribers...

We admit that we send you A LOT of e-mail! :) While we do our best to make
sure we only send out emails that we feel are of importance to the
organization, and of interest to the majority of our readers - it's still a
lot.... :)

So we have enacted two changes that will help lessen your
"email overload"...
#1: Starting in August LGBTSU will return to its once weekly "E-mail
Newsletter"... Here you will receive only the most important updates once a
week in a newsletter format. We feel that this will keep you more informed,
with less emails to read... We will try to limit emails to 3-5 per week...
PROMISE! :)
#2: WE HAVE A WONDERFUL ADDITION TO OUR WEBSITE! WE HAVE
ADDED A "MESSAGE
BOARD"... Just visit http://www-rohan.sdsu.edu/~lgbtsu and go to the
"message board" section. You are welcome to post anything on the message
board... Personal ads, roomate ads, discussions, anything (just keep it
somewhat clean)... Some other LGBT student organizations throughout the
nation have some very active message boards, with full on debates,
discussions, and event postings... So visit our site and post a message...
Along with that, we promise to keep the website as updated as possible... If
you have LGBTSU event pics please submit them to acnco@yahoo.com and Anna
will post on them in our album...

Have A Nice Weekend!

This request for proposals for three $100,000 grants for organizations supporting GLBTQ
youth has come to my attention from my contacts at the Tides Foundation. Please
circulate among your networks. The same request for Letters of Intent is also in the
attached file. -- Weston
============================

                                  QUEER YOUTH FUND

                        REQUEST FOR LETTERS OF INQUIRY



The Queer Youth Fund of the Tides Foundation intends this request to reach grassroots,
local, state, and national organizations that might be interested in applying for this grant.
Please forward this notice to individuals, organizations and listservs so that interested
parties may apply for funding. Thank you for your assistance.
                   The Queer Youth Fund of the Tides Foundation
                  Announces Three $100,000 Multi-Year Grants
                                    July 2002


A group of donors to the Tides Foundation have come together to support efforts that
enhance the rights, treatment, status, well-being, self-esteem and ability to contribute to
the larger society of youth who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender
("LGBT").

As most donors and foundations find gay issues "too controversial," few philanthropic
dollars go to organizations supporting LGBT youth. Given the rapidly increasing
visibility of young LGBT people and their issues, the donors to the Queer Youth Fund
feel that strategic funding in this area is timely and exciting. The donors will work with
community representatives and Tides staff to evaluate proposals and make funding
decisions.

Grants are available to groups that focus only on LGBT youth, and also to groups that
wish to make special efforts to include LGBT youth in larger youth- or community-
oriented programs.


DESCRIPTION OF GRANT OPPORTUNITY

Deadline for Letters of Inquiry: August 30, 2002

Number of Grants: Three grants will be disbursed per year.

Size of Grant and payout schedule: $100,000 distributed over three years, with the
possibility of extending payout over five years. Groups should propose and justify their
preferred payout schedule. Grants beyond the first year will be conditioned upon
compliance with reporting requirements, continued progress toward meeting stated goals
and objectives, and demonstrated impact of activities.

FUNDING CRITERIA

The Queer Youth Fund will make three one-time, multi-year grants of $100,000. Given
the size of our commitment, the funders wish to stimulate new and innovative programs
to support efforts that will improve LGBT youths' ability to achieve their potential and
contribute to the larger society, promote greater understanding of their needs and
concerns and tolerance towards them, and enhance the field of serving LGBT youth.

The following are characteristics that the Fund will consider when evaluating the Letters
of Inquiry and final proposals.

§ Radical: Grantseekers should have the potential to effect significant change. Included
under these criteria are programs that involve community organizing, impact litigation,
non-violent direct action, or other tactics that can create systemic change.

§ Compassionate: Grantseekers should demonstrate a compassionate, human connection
to their immediate and surrounding communities. This may be expressed through a range
of positive values and behaviors. Grantseekers, for example, may demonstrate values not
directly connected to their core work, like planetary sustainability or peace making. The
grantseekers may use some form of consensus decision-making or incorporate the non-
rational into decision-making processes.

§ Vision and Clarity: Grantseekers should define their success in measurable, concrete
terms that are clearly linked to their missions and strategies.

§ Record of Success: Grantseekers should demonstrate a clear record of success
proportionate to the scale of their chosen scope of work, resources and community. This
record should include resourcefulness in mobilizing community support and/or money to
sustain their activities.

§ Capacity building: Grantseekers should describe how this grant will build
organizational capacity in areas like delivering quality programs, creating desired results,
enhancing diversity, creating accountability, building networks of allies, increasing
community visibility, and fundraising.

Priority will be given to:

§ Programs that promote social change rather than provide an ongoing service.
§ New ideas or efforts that address controversial issues.
§ Projects in the early stages of development where potential is high and funding is
scarce.
§ Efforts to educate and train community leaders.
§ Programs that leverage additional cash, in-kind or volunteer resources.
§ Strategies that can alter and improve standards in the field of service to LGBT youth.

===========================
II. So another SAN DIEGO PRIDE has passed! Hope you all had a wonderful
weekend!!! If you missed the SDSU contingent we were hot!! As SDSU was
recently ranked one of the nation's most "HOT AND TRENDY" universities we
proved that with our Pride contingent. Leading the contingent was our A.S.
Executive Officers Priscilla, Marivic, Juanita, and Mark, driven by AS Exec
Director Dan Cornthwaite... They were very energetic and helped us pass-out
our HOT LGBTSU beach-balls to the crowd.... Following the AS Exec's was
LGBTSU Executive Director Ben Cartwright on a beautiful white BMW
convertible, in his hot little URBAN COWBOY attire... Then we had some
faculty/staff (and their families) and some student marchers sporting
LGBTSU's "STAR" T-shrits.... and to cap-it off SDSU LGBTSU's first ever
FLOAT - a stake bed truck called "It's A Queer World" - student "dancers"
wore costumes representing different cultures - Aztec, Phillipines, Hawaii,

LGBTSU MEMBER ILL

Hello LGBTSU Members and Friends:
One of our members, James Neill, was recently diagnosed with lung cancer.
While he is still active, he is having a hard time breathing, and is feeling
very down - physically AND emotionally. <<Jim has given me permission to
notify you all of his condition.>>
As an organization one of our functions is to support our members and
provide friendship to them, especially in times of need. Please please take
a moment to mail Jim a card or note to let him know you are thinking of him,
and wish him well. Even a quick e-mail would be ok. Unfortunately Jim is
unable to receive mail where he is staying... You may mail cards to Jim at
my home (best way) and I will deliver them to him, or mail it to or drop it
by the LGBTSU office...

James Neill OR James Neill
c/o Ben Cartwright c/o SDSU LGBTSU
6413 Estrella Avenue 5500 Campanile Drive
San Diego, CA 92120 Aztec Center Room 158B
San Diego, CA 92182

Jim's E-mail Address: jamesneill30@hotmail.com

FYI Jim has been in LGBTSU longer than any of our current members
(including myself). Jim has put many many many hours into the organization,
serving as President in the 1978-1979 academic year. Jim held the club
together during that turmoil-filled year in the '70s, successfully leading
the charge to add "LESBIAN" to the title of the organization - changing it
from the Gay Student Union (GSU) to the Gay and Lesbian Student Union
(GLSU). After taking a leave from SDSU for several years in the 80's and
early 90's Jim returned to the organization in 1997, and since then has
served as Secretary, Treasurer, Director of Education, and currently as
QCOPE Director. Jim has agreed to carry out his current term on the LGBTSU
board for as long as he is able to, and we do appreciate that.

So please, take a moment to brighten one of our member's day! The "kharma"
will be returned........ Trust me. :)

Thanks for your support!

A CD,TV,TS dance club review site

I have started a page for club reviews, the plan behind this is to
create a database of as many clubs as I can from the perspective of
other CD,TV,TS so everyone will know where to go especially if their
making a trip to another city.
All I ask is to e-mail me the name of the club the address and a
description of it along with your experiences there. I am going to
rate them on a 5 star system for fun and T-girl friendliness so let me
know how many stars you think its worth. I only have a few done so fare
but I plan to update it dally if possible. You can check out what I
have done so far by going to my site.
http://mywebpages.comcast.net/robincd4/
follow the club review link or you can just e-mail me with your review.
robincd4@comcast.net
I know there are some great sites listing all the clubs in various
cities but those are usually just the name of the place and an
address, they might have a description if your lucky. That is very
resourceful but you don't know what to expect when going to those
clubs, so I thought a list of clubs weather they are GLBTS or straight
that are friendly to Tgirls would be a valuable resource for all of
us. Lets see what it turns into.
Thanks :)

during the last year. Regardless, the 2002 walk is on!!

SDSU LGBTSU will again have a team, and we want you to be a part of it.
HIV/AIDS still exists and infection rates continue to rise, not only in our

support this cause so that one day this devastating disease can be
irradicated, and a cure be found... Please help us support AIDS Walk SD....
All you have to do is join our team. AIDS Walk recommends that all walkers
raise at least $75- but if you don't make that goal, it's ok! Still walk

                  Love Sees No Borders Secures Fiscal Sponsorship
                 NCLR Helps LGBT Immigration Group Raise Funds

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

<?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags"
/>SUNNYVALE, Calif., Aug. 06, 2002 - Love Sees No Borders, an educational
organization focused on raising awareness of the plight of same-sex binational couples
and their fight to remain together, today announced that it has secured fiscal sponsorship
from the National Center for Lesbian Rights, located in San Francisco. Thanks to
NCLR‘s support, Love Sees No Borders will cease to be a solely self-funded organization.

―Love Sees No Borders‘ activism has been fundamental to shedding light on the
injustices suffered by LGBT binational same-sex couples,‖ said Shannon Minter,
NCLR‘s Legal Director and coordinator of NCLR‘s Immigration Project. ―When same-
sex binational couples are denied equal immigration rights, the government is tearing our
families apart and attempting to dictate who we can love. This is contrary to basic human
rights and a slap in the face to the dignity and freedom of LGBT people. NCLR is proud
to offer support to these couples through its Immigration Project, and by supporting Love
Sees No Borders.‖

Love Sees No Borders was founded in August 2001 by Leslie Bulbuk and Marta Donayre
with the mission to educate the LGBT community as well as society at large about the
problems faced by same-sex binational couples. Since inception, Love Sees No Borders
has been self-funded. This seriously limited the organization‘s ability to expand their
efforts and reach a larger audience. NCLR‘s fiscal sponsorship will enable Love Sees No
Borders to increase its activities and audiences.

―NCLR is an organization that is famous for extending a helping hand in time of need,‖
said Leslie Bulbuk, co-founder of Love Sees No Borders. ―We are honored and
immensely grateful to receive such significant help that will provide us the tools to raise
funds to continue our work on awareness and education, which we hope it will one day
materialize into immigration equality for all couples.‖

People can make contributions online to Love Sees No Borders through its Web site,
www.loveseesnoborders.org. Contributions can also be mailed in by sending a check
payable to NCLR – please write Love Sees No Borders on the memo line – to NCLR,
870 Market Street, Suite 570, San Francisco, CA 94102.

About Love Sees No Borders
Love Sees No Borders was founded by Leslie Bulbuk and Marta Donayre to bring
attention to the injustices faced by binational same-sex couples because their
relationships are not recognized for immigration purposes. The stalled Permanent
Partners Immigration Act (PPIA), H.R. 690, would solve the problems of many same-sex
binational couples. The PPIA would add the words "or permanent partner" any time the
word "spouse" is mentioned in the Immigration and Nationality Act. It is estimated that 3
millions of Americans would benefit from the passage of the PPIA. For more information
go to: http://www.loveseesnoborders.org.

Note to editors: Leslie Bulbuk is a woman.

=====================
I. RESOURCE CENTER
SDSU's BRAND NEW LGBT Resource Center is shaping up nicely.... When we
re-open on September 3, 2002 we hope you will be excited about the changes
we are making... This year, instead of just having a "student organization
office" - we will be running that office like a REAL LGBT RESOURCE CENTER...
As part of our plan to get a University funded center, it is important to
have one of our own running to show the need... As the semester and year
progresses you will have opportunities to help us lobby for a
university-funded center, but for now we plan to run an AWESOME center of
our own...
What will you find in there?
*An upgraded, organized library... Over 500 titles, plus numerous
videos/DVDs, CDs, cassettes, current and past periodicals, and our new SDSU
LGBT archives!
*Regular office hours... The center will now be staffed by a volunteer all
day, every day. All volunteers will be trained on office procedures,
resources, our library, and as peer counselors. The volunteers will be able
to better manage the office, so that when people come in to ask questions or
use our resources, they will be given appropriate assistance.
*Computers... We have two computers available. While they belong to the
LGBT Student Organization, and our primarily to be used for student
organization business, you are welcome to use them when they are open. One
has full internet access, and you can print using your SDSUCard.
*Resource materials... We have brochures and information from LGBT
organizations, health information, and coming out info, amongst other
things.
*Upcoming event postings... We will have a newly organized event planner
wall, posting SDSU, LGBTSU, and Community events.
*Counseling services... SDSU's CPS will provide drop-in counseling again
this semester. Times TBA.
*Study space. You are welcome to come in and TRY to study :) .
*LGBTSU Student Organization work space. If you are working on an LGBTSU
related project, this is the place to do it! All the materials and office
supplies are there for your use when working on LGBTSU projects.

There will be many new changes to the Resource Center this fall and we
invite you to utilize our space!

For those returning members we want to remind you that the "office" will no
longer function as it used to. We are going to be running a professional
space and need your support in making this happen. It is imperative that
you get involved, volunteer, and keep the place neat at all times. We have
to portray professionalism so that we can provide top quality services to
our students, and so that we can show the University our need...

We look forward to seeing everyone at our Grand Opening on Wednesday,
September 4...
=========
II. UPCOMING
-Friday, August 30: SDSU's Aztec Life Orientation... Tablers needed from
430-630 PM (returning members only). Please e-mail LGBTSU@rohan.sdsu.edu if

welcome your involvement! Here are some ways you can get involved: (full
descriptions are on our website)
-BOARD POSITIONS (recommended for returning members, but everyone is welcome
to apply)

health of the club by securing large scale donations, and grants... Also

-COMMITTEE POSITIONS (each committee will also have a chair (you are welcome
to apply for chair... open to EVERYONE!)

IV. JIM NEILL UPDATE
Jim has started morning chemo-therapy treatments. These cause him to be
weak in the afternoons/evenings... But he is still charging on keeping his
spirits high - he is a very strong individual! To not make a "media-circus"
out of Jim's condition we will only update from you now on with major
developments of his condition... Thank you again for your cards, and
prayers! Jim appreciates it! :)

QUEER YOUTH SPOTLIGHT - BEN CARTWRIGHT

Our very own Executive Director Ben Cartwright was this month's Queer Youth
Spotlight in "Update" Newspaper... Read the following!

Have A Nice Weekend - Jim Neill, LGBTSU QCOPE Director


Queer Youth Spotlight — Ben Cartwright
By Ren Petty
Assistant Editor

An ongoing Update feature is the Queer Youth Spotlight, which nods the
work, talent, and community presence of some of San Diego‘s outstanding
local heroes. An important note to add is that all of the featured community
leaders that are under the age of 24. Previous spotlight occupants include
volunteers, peer advisors, musicians, as well as youth who are in the front
lines of fighting for equal rights for the GLBTQ community. The August 2002
recipient is no exception, as Ben Cartwright is among the most notable names
in the local community.
Ben is a 22-year-old powerhouse of action, creativity, and personality.
He has continuously involved himself in all realms of the GLBTQ community
including his work as the second-year reigning Executive Director of the San
Diego State University LGBT Student Union and his active role as the Boy
Coordinator of the 2002 Day of the Dyke festivities. ―While I had hoped for
more males to show their support for the Dykes, I feel that we really got
the word out. In talking to men in the community I often encountered
hesitation, and even some hostility. I was just flabbergasted at some men‘s
reluctance towards supporting our sisters.‖
Ben came out at the age of 17 upon entering SDSU as a freshman. ―When I
started at SDSU in 1998, I decided I would be ‗out‘ from then on. It is
important to me to help my fellow queer youth in their coming out process.‖
In addition to his endless work with local youth, Ben also works as
Washington Mutual Bank as well as the Del Cerro Park and Tennis Club. Busy
would be an understatement when speaking of this young man.
His work has not gone unnoticed as he has been honored on several
occasions within the past three years by aiding his student organization in
receiving the Friend of the Vets Awards from the American Veterans for
Equality, the Most Outstanding Student Organization at SDSU 2001-2002, and
the Spirit of Stonewall Service Award at San Diego Pride 2001. Individual
accomplishments include Kiwanis scholarships, membership in the 1999 SDSU
Freshmen Honor Society, and recognition as Outstanding Youth Volunteer by
United Way in 2000.
Update‘s own The Lady Ajax, commented, ―Ben generally impressed me with
the way he has led LGBTSU since I was a member. His rapport with everyone
who is there helps to increase the membership as well as the working
relationship with the university and the student body. He does not think
just in terms of SDSU, he also thinks outside of that by working with
Bourbon Street, Dyke March, and the gay veterans. It is really impressive
how he can think outside of the box and still maintain his singular mission
of helping out his community.‖
When asked what he would like to see for the future of the San Diego
GLBTQ community, Ben replied, ―It is so important to me to see LGBT youth
and college students get involved in the community. Not only because we are
the future, but because of the opportunities the youth will gain. Any youth,
no matter what their background is, can get involved. Just show up at a
meeting, no group I have been a part of would ever turn anyone away. I know
a lot of youth hate how things are run now in the community. Let‘s get
involved, and create our own change.‖

weeks the Center will be FULLY operational, with trained volunteers, and
programs. As of now, the center is still undergoing some touch-ups, and we
are currently working on getting the volunteers trained - but the Center
will be open starting tomorrow, offering a limited amount of services, and
as a "SAFE ZONE" to hang out or study. Please stop by and say hello.
If you are interested in volunteering in the Center please email
LGBTSU@rohan.sdsu.edu. All volunteers will receive training on how to run
the center, and peer counseling training provided by SDSU's Counseling &
Psychological Services.
==============
*RESOURCE CENTER SPOTLIGHTS

person who has had an impact on the LGBT community, and a movie in our
library... More information will be released soon, but here are September's
selections:

BOOK: "The Front Runner"... by Patricia Nell Warren
============
*FUN?!?!?
Yes LGBTSU loves to have fun, and we realize the importance of providing
social events for our members. All next week (Sept 9-13) LGBTSU presents
our semesterly "WELCOME WEEK" - with a whole of week of events like coffee
nites, dinners, and a Saturday BBQ/pool party... Keep your eyes out for
another email with all the details... And the rest of the semester? Our

parties, dinners, Hedwig, and other events... Please keep checking our
website for details...
==============

2002 Election season, Halloween festivities, and so much more... It'll be an
awesome semester.
==============
*Want more out of your LGBTSU experience?
We realize that not everyone is ready to jump up and wave the rainbow flag
on Centennial Walkway. Please know that it's ok if you just want to attend
meetings/events and not become a super-activist. We love everyone! But if
you do want to get involved, we have so many opportunities for you...
Committee chairs, resource volunteers, External Affairs Activists, so much
is going on... I'd be happy to talk to you about how you could best get
involved, or just come to the meetings...
==============
*MONDAY MEETINGS DON'T WORK FOR YOU?
LGBTSU introduces an alternative weekly meeting for those who can't make the
Monday meeting... Thursday evenings will feature informal coffee nites at
local coffee houses... These "meetings" will give a VERY brief re-cap of the
week's Monday meeting, and mostly just be a "Coffee hour" to chat and
connect with other LGBT students and allies.
==============

Still excited? We hope so, because your 2002-2003 LGBTSU Leadership is very
excited to offer you an outstanding year of programs that we hope will be
worth your while, and fun. Please e-mail me with any concerns, or
questions, and we hope to see you on MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 9 at 5 PM for our
first meeting...

Press Release: Transgender Veterans Asked To Share Their Stories


                                             For Immediate Release: Dated September 2, 2002
                                    From: The National Transgender Advocacy Coalition (NTAC)
                                     Contact Person: Vanessa Edwards Foster; Houston, Texas
                                                           Contact Email: ntacmedia@aol.com
                                                                              media@ntac.org
                                                                Contact Phone: 832-483-9901
                                                                 Website: http://www.ntac.org


Transgender Veterans Asked To Share Their Stories

The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) recently unveiled a new area on their website dedicated to
LGBT veterans. In collaboration with the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network (SLDN) and
the American Veterans for Equal Rights (AVER), HRC is collecting stories of gay, lesbian,
bisexual and transgender veterans, some of which will be posted on their web site at www.hrc.org
in honor of Veterans Day, November 11, 2002.

The project, "Documenting Courage: Veterans Speak Out," is part of a continuing effort to better
inform the public, Congress and the administration about the many contributions made by LGBT
service members.

"It is time to recognize the contributions of LGBT men and women who have given their time,
talent and, in some cases, their lives in service to their country," said HRC Senior Policy
Advocate John Vezina, who specializes in military issues. "The 'Documenting Courage' project is
a way for us to preserve the stories of LGBT American vets for future generations and to
demonstrate the undeniable contribution the LGBT community has made in service to the
country."

The National Transgender Advocacy Coalition supports this project and urges transgender
veterans all over the country to submit their stories to ensure that the transgender community is
well represented in this project. Stories can be submitted via the form located at
https://www.hrc.org/documentingcourage/sharestory.asp.

NTAC asks participating veterans to also paste a copy of the completed form in an E-mail sent to
NTAC's Veterans Affairs Committee at veterans.affairs@ntac.org. Stories that cover all aspects
of military service, regardless of whether they are good stories or tragic, are encouraged.

In addition to military stories, NTAC would also like to hear from transgender veterans --
particularly pre- and post-operative transsexuals -- regarding treatment by the Department of
Veteran Affairs health system. Of specific interest are responses to quality of health care
afforded veterans once out of the military and living in the new gender role, such as:

Have local facilities, offices, and VA personnel treated the veteran with respect?

Has the veteran been denied any medical services because of transgender status?

If denied services, has this impacted the veteran's health, financial situation, or ability to
transition?

These are as important as the stories of how one fared while serving in the military, knowing that
one was "gender different."

Monica Helms, Chair of NTAC's Veterans Affairs Committee states, "The American people and
Congress need to see that LGBT people have served with honor and have been there for their
country in every war this great nation has fought. Many have given the ultimate sacrifice for their
country, even though their country did not want them to serve."

"Always remember this one important phrase," Helms says to America's transgendered veterans,
"We served proudly, too. And, we will again."

                                                 - 30 -


Founded in 1999, NTAC - the National Transgender Advocacy Coalition - is a §501(c)(4) civil
rights organization working to establish and maintain the right of all transgendered, intersexed,
and gender-variant people to live and work without fear of violence or discrimination.

"QUEERBUCKS"?? "SASS-TEC CENTER"???

Hi LGBTSU!
I need all of your help! We're working on a really fun project for the
upcoming QUEERIENTATION. I won't give all the details now, but I need your
help in "re-naming" SDSU. Basically we just want to assign "LGBT" names to
landmarks on campus... Huh?
For example...
Starbucks, we could call it "Queerbucks"
Aztec Center, could be called "Sass-Tec" Center
Louie's Suds and Sun (campus bar), renamed "Louie's STUDS and Sun"

get my drift?

This is totally just a FUN project, but we think what we have planned will
be a fun way for new students to get acquainted with LGBT life at SDSU. Of
course we are not officially renaming these landmarks, and will not be using
these names publicly, we also won't use your name... Please send me your
"SDSU Re-name" Suggestions by this SATURDAY so we can compile it for our
activity... You may send suggestions to re-name ANY building, landmark, or
spot on campus... If you need help, here are some important places on
campus...
Aztec Center
Adams Humanities
ARC
Art Bldg
Athletics Hall of Fame
BAM Building
SDSU Bookstore
Centennial Hall
Centennial Walkway
Residence Halls (Zura, Chappy, Olmeca, etc etc)
Chem-Geology
College Avenue
Cox Arena
East Commons
ENS
Gateway Center
Hepner Hall
Love Library
"The Dome" (library addition)
Little Theater
Storm Hall
Nasatir Hall
Scripps Cottage
Don Powell Theater.....
and the list goes on

Thanks in advance for your help!

Go to sdsu.edu and check out campus maps for more landmarks...

The ―NEW‖ resource center is working well, and is providing a space for many
LGBT students. My thanks go out to all of the students who have given their

program… Read on and contact Maisa Beasley if you want more information…
Hello,

The Leadership Programs of the Office of Student Life and Development has a
program called the "Leadership Certificate Program", which is designed to
help college students enhance leadership skills for both professional and
personal growth. To complete the program, students must successfully attend
4 interactive leadership development workshops over the semester, become
actively in involved in an on campus organization, complete 15 hours of
community service, and participate in a leadership and professional
development activity (ie. the SDSU Leadership Institute Conference). The
program is flexible and you can complete the requirements at your own pace.

There is no deadline to register for the Leadership Certificate Program, but
I encourage you to register before the first workshop so you will have
plenty of time to complete the program. The first workshop is on September
25, 2002, titled "Motivating and Leading When the Heat is On", at 5:00pm in
the Lipinsky Hospitality Center (Student Services West Building, Room
1602D).
You can sign up for the program by visiting the Office of Student Life and
Development, Student Services West Room 1602. There is a $20 fee to
participate in this program, which includes a t-shirt, a certificate of
completion, and an awards ceremony honoring their accomplishments
This program is a great resume builder, a key activity to highlight in
interviews, and demonstrates that you have maximized your time and
diversified your experience here at SDSU. I would encourage all of you to
mention this program in your club or organizations weekly meeting. If you
have members that are interested, please let me know via email and I will
send the registration materials to you. My email is
mbeasley@projects.sdsu.edu and my phone number is (619) 594-1041.
Thank you for you assistance in making our programs available to your
students.

Sincerely,

Maisha Beasley
Program Assistant for Leadership Programs
Office of Student Life and Development
