LGBTQIA+ Equity Forum

Keweenaw Pride is hosting two forums for students to share their experiences at Michigan Tech as members of or allies to the LGBTQIA+ community. We encourage students to share both positive and negative experiences and there will be a designated time for students to offer suggestions on what could be done to improve the LGBTQIA+ experience on campus. The forums will be held on Thursday, April 7, and Friday, April 8, both starting at 7pm. Students are welcome to attend one or both events. If you plan to attend, please fill out the RSVP form so we know how many people to expect. Any students who would prefer to submit written responses or are unable to attend the forums are invited to share their experiences via a survey. We look forward to seeing you or reading your responses!

The Thanksgiving Play

How hard can it be to celebrate Thanksgiving and Native American Heritage Month at the same time? Good intentions collide with absurd assumptions in FastHorse’s wickedly funny satire, as a troupe of teaching artists scrambles to create a show that somehow manages to celebrate both while avoiding any cultural missteps.

Each evening, dinner is served at 6:45 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m. Following the show, there will be a brief panel discussion. 
Shows will be performed over two weekends from Thursday, March 31 to Saturday, April 9

Tickets are reserved by table and must be purchased in advance. Prices include your dinner, ticket to the performance and after-show discussion.
Student Half Table (two tickets): $20 with Experience Tech Fee
Full Table (four tickets): $120 | Half Table (two tickets): $60 for the general public
