Lance Bass Visits Kenyon to Discuss LGBTQIA+ Issues



The thing about this little liberal arts school named Kenyon College is that sometimes things happen on this hill that are so strange, so unprecedented, that you are forced to question the reality of your existence on this plane.

Peirce serves taco pizza. Kittens live in pipes near Caples, surviving off of Cheetos.

Lance Bass, of *NSYNC fame and a strong, currently active presence in most of my ideals of love and success, shows up in the middle of the day with little to no prior advertising to talk about LGBTQIA+ issues in America.

What: LGBTQ+ Campus Tour (including Lance Bass, Raymond Braun, Robbie Kaplan, and Jim Obergefell)

When: Today at 2:45p.m.

Where: Peirce Hall

Uphill/Downhill: Sendoff Fever

This week, it’s all about Sendoff here at The Thrill. Too bad it isn’t for another 71 days … not that I’m counting.

Uphill: Big Boi & Starfucker: The bands this year are solid.  Not that I didn’t appreciate Rebelution for what it was (great 7:00 p.m. hangover music!), but this takes it to a whole new level.  I’m actually excited about the Sendoff bands—to the point that I’ll actually attend now!  Big Boi was one thing, but Starfucker really ties the whole room together.

Downhill: I’m not going to remember it: If I’m lucky, I (as a CA) will not be on duty for the concert part of Sendoff.  Much like the rest of campus, I, hopefully, will be too gone to remember that I even saw Big Boi or Starfucker.  Seems like an awful lot of money to spend when it would be just as effective to play a loud recording of N’Sync and have four random people run on stage.  I would probably be 50% convinced I just saw the fab four … awesome.
