National Coming Out Day Informational Email

Hello Everyone!

Be sure to check your email for some information on National Coming Out Day. There you will also find an interesting article to read, and an open invitation to chat with me any time about any LGBTQ+ topic. Please do not hesitate to let me know any of your questions, comments, or concerns.


The Genderbread Person

To help people understand what Coming Out Day on October 11th could mean, Jason and I put up The Genderbread Person. This board, adapted from “It’s Pronounced Metrosexual” explains the difference between gender identity, gender expression, biological sex, and romantic and sexual attraction. The interactive side lets you express your identity, and the comment section lets you help us make this board more inclusive. Make sure to stop by to add your pins and comments!

Question of the Week(ish)


Be sure to check out my white board for a question of the week (or every couple of days)! Hopefully you can see that others on the wing have some of the same interests as you and feel like more of a community! Check back often so you can see what others think, and so that you catch the next question!

4H and FFA Door Decs


No one will be able to forget where they live with their very first door decs (of the year)! On first floor, we decided to let everyone know about the similarities and differences between the two organizations! Check out our wing for the 4H theme and 1E for the FFA theme! Southwest’s opening theme is State Fair, and since 4H and FFA are a huge part of the State Fair, Jason and I thought it would be a great idea to help people learn more about these wonderful organizations.

Letter Scramble


Take a look around the wing to find a message on little clovers. Find all 20 letters and then unscramble the message for a semi-valuable prize! Tell me in person, or send me an email with what you think the message. Please don’t write it on my white board so others have a chance to play too.

FFA vs. 4H


First floor’s theme is 4H and FFA, so Jason and I put together a comparisons board. I knew there were a lot of things that 4H and FFA shared, but I was pretty unsure of the differences. I hope you find this board as helpful as I did! Don’t forget to leave a note about your experience in the organizations so we can make some connections around the floor!

All About Your RA


On the wall next to my room I posted some information about myself! I hope this encourages you to tell me a little about you as well. Let me know if you have any other questions for me so I can answer them at the wing meeting that will be coming up soon!
