[Cal Q&A] Drag Discussion

Hello friends!


What: Drag Discussion

Where: 88 Dwinelle
When: Wednesday, April 16, 2014
Time: 7:30-9:00 p.m.

Want to learn more about drag culture? Ever wondered what your drag persona would be? Want to see part of board in drag? Come celebrate drag culture month with Q&A! This week’s theme is drag and ball culture, just in time for the 7th Annual Berkeley’s Next Top Drag Performer on Saturday!
And now, announcements:
On Saturday, April 19, at 3 p.m. in 263 Dwinelle, we will be having a movie social, where we will be screening the film East is East, a movie about a Pakistani man’s struggle to reconcile his conservative and traditional values with those of his English-born children (one of whom is gay) and British wife. This comedy-drama film deals with struggles and conflicts that many of us who grew up in a multicultural family might relate to, and very importantly, it got good reviews on Rotten Tomatoes! Afterwards, there will be a get-together at Simon’s place, where there will be lots of fun and games, among other things! Hope to see you there!
After the movie social on April 19, of course, is the 7th Annual Berkeley Drag Performer, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. in Krutch Theater (at Clark Kerr), a drag show free to Cal students!  It’s a lot of fun, and we’ll be heading over there after our movie social!
If you have not yet registered for QACON (even though you’ve heard us talk about it for hours on end), the annual free Queer and Asian conference here that happens every year, then you can sign up at this link!
Finally, if you are interested in applying to be a part of Cal Q&A Board next year, the application is at this link!  The deadline is May 2 (the day of QACON)  If you have any questions about being a part of board, please talk to one of us, and we’ll be happy to answer your questions!
Best,

Every year, the Queer & Asian Conference (QACON) brings queer APIs and allies from across the United States to participate in engaging workshops, keynotes from prominent activists, performers, scholars, and politicians, a “Storytime” session in which individuals are invited to share their personal stories with one another in small, intimate groups, performances from our talented community members, and of course, the afterparty!
For our seventh annual QACON, our theme “RefrAction” directs attention to those issues that are not necessarily a priority for mainstream LGBT political agendas. The capitalized “A” signifies how activism can effectively integrate social justice movements into our surroundings through outlets that are not always strictly political, in arenas outside grassroots community organizing.This conference is free of charge and lunch will also be provided on Saturday. You may also request free housing provided by our volunteers.TL;DR?

Paintbrushes, move over. There’s a cooler way to paint in town. Enter water transfer printing, a hydro-coating process that essentially uses liquid images and ink to coat 3-D objects of any material. If only this sorcery could be used for our nails… new venture?

Actually, you can. It’s called water marbling. I’ve done it many times. It’s hella easy and there are a ton of videos on youtube to watch if you need help getting started.

You can do “hydro dipping” yourself! It’s an excellent option for cosplayers, car owners, or anyone who want to add any kind of pattern to an object.

You can buy pre-made patterns here.

OR buy printable (yes, printable) hydro transfer paper here.

The streets of San Francisco are lined with pear, plum and apple trees thanks to ‘guerilla grafters’ secretly grafting fruit-bearing scions onto ornamental, non-fruit bearing trees making fresh fruit free and available to everyone who wishes to pick some.

'All you have to do is make a slit with a knife in a branch on the host tree, insert a branch from a fruit-bearing tree, and secure it with tape.  Once it heals, it connects.” — Tara Hui started the movement and has been grafting fruit branches to city trees for two years now.

How great would it be to see free fruit from guerilla grafters growing in your city?  Want to start a trend?

Trees and people are so fucking amazing
