BOOM! Info blast. ~via MythBusters

 

BOOM! It’s ▲Queer 101▲ again, back with some info about queer life at Kenyon! Here you’ll find a guide to all the student-run LGBTQIA+ organizations on campus. I’m sure many of you already learned about these clubs at the activities fair, but for those of you who didn’t (or were too overwhelmed by the insanity of a thousand booths and a giant walking puppet to take in any real information), here’s a comprehensive list of said clubs and instructions on how to join them. Enjoy!

Unity House

  • What: Unity House is Kenyon’s main source for all things LGBTQ+. It has club meetings and events but the location itself is also a safe space for all humans to enjoy! There are couches, a kitchen, a TV (with cable!!!), and also a puppy (his name is Eddie!!!). In addition, there’s a queer library that you can browse at any time, and they have free condoms/dental dams/lube. Unity’s doors are always open, so stop by any time!
