Queerly Beloved September

Join LGBTQ+ folx and allies for social gatherings centered on queer issues and themes. We understand the importance of queer community, and our goal is to provide a safe space where people can find that sense of belonging right here in Corvallis. We meet monthly on the 3rd Sunday in the afternoon. All are welcome! Questions: connect@uucorvallis.org

Movie Night

The next queerly beloved will be September 17th, 4pm-7pm! We will be watching The Prince, written by and starring Abigail Thorn the “trans princess of TERF Island”.

“The Prince is a transformative new play that has everything: sword fighting, lesbianism, Hamlet, and disappointed parents”

The play is 2 hours long, so those who want to stick around after for discussion are welcome to! Content warnings include language, misgendering, and stage fighting. I’d say its ~PG-13 mainly due to language. Feel free to bring snacks to share if that strikes your fancy 🙂

We will meet in Room 7 or on the Social Hall deck depending on weather and equipment logistics.

Hope to see you there! – Lily Hislop

August 2023 Hike Info:

This month, we are going to Fort Hoskins. There is a nice loop walk around the old fort area and another good loop (perhaps a mile) up the hill above the fort.

Jim Wagner won’t be able to lead but James Rodell will fill in for him. The group will gather at 10AM on Saturday, August 26 at UUFC. Everyone should be home by mid-afternoon. This is a family-friendly outing and children are welcome. Bring a lunch and water for yourself.
