Gay group to host wedding reception at UGA

Add this share

Those queer Bulldogs in Athens are staying quite busy this summer.

imageOn Friday, the group Equal Love Allies hosts a joint wedding reception for a lesbian couple and a heterosexual couple under the Arch on the University of Georgia campus. An organizer of the group, Jonas Hopkins, offered some details to Gay in Athens:

We will be holding a joint wedding reception for a lesbian couple and a heterosexual couple at the University of Georgia Arch on July 31st (that’s this Friday), at 6pm. It is our belief that showing these two couples adjacent to one another will close the social space between college heterosexual and lesbian women on campus and possibly lead to a change of stereotypes and our main goal acceptance on the basis of orientation in our state and our community. Faculty and students from UGA’s Speech Communication Department as well as members of the LGBTQ community from all over Athens will be in attendance!

Also, students in a gender and sexuality class recently created projects that visualize gay life in Athens. One of the projects is a video (above) of the transformation “from ‘man’ to ‘woman,'” while the other staged a rendition of Charles Ebbet’s world-famous “Lunch Atop A Skyscraper” photograph.
