Volunteers Needed: Study on Homophobia and Transphobia in High School
 Hello,

My name is Rebecca Haskell. I am a graduate student in the School of Criminology at Simon Fraser University. I am conducting a study about homophobic and transphobic bullying in high schools. The study has gone on longer than expected due to some health issues, but I'm back in action and looking to set up a group discussion for the end of February. The research, involving group discussions with former high school students, is designed to inform practice, policy, and research and promote a safer learning environment for high school students in Canada.

 

Interested in being involved? Join a short (1-1.5 hour) one-time discussion group.

 

Do you meet the following criteria?

 

1)      Gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, two-spirited or queer (GLBTTQ) individual who feels that you were bullied in high school because of your sexual orientation or gender identity;

 

2)      19 years of age or older;

 

3)      graduated from or left a Canadian high school in the year 2002 or later.

NOTE: You did NOT have to be 'out' in high school to participate.

 

If you fit these criteria and are interested in discussing your experiences (both positive and negative) with other GLBTTQ people who have also experienced bullying you’re invited to participate! Refreshments will be provided.

 

For more information, or to volunteer, please contact Rebecca at bullystudy@hotmail.com or see www.myspace.com/htpbullystudy

the great orbax in vancity!


Wed. May 16th @ Red Room

The Great Orbax Sideshow is an incredible comedy stunt show featuring jaw dropping feats and hilarious antics presented in a modern day vaudevillian atmosphere!

Drawing equal influences from the travelling carnivals of the 1930's, vaudeville, horror movies and saturday morning cartoons, the Great Orbax Sideshow is a one of a kind roller coaster of shock value entertainment!

You may leave in awe, or leave in disgust, but we guarantee that you'll leave laughing!
