NYC: DGALA Volunteers with Callen-Lorde

Join DGALA for Dartmouth Alumni Day of Service!

Date: Saturday, May 2nd
Time: 11:00 AM – 3:oo PM
Place: Callen-Lorde Community Health Center, 356 W 18th St, NYC

DGALA will be volunteering with Callen-Lorde as part of the Alumni Council’s Dartmouth Alumni Day of Service, a day designed to provide opportunities for Dartmouth alumni to give back to their local communities.

DGALA has been asked to help Callen-Lorde organize a community photo-shoot at the health center on Saturday, May 2nd from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. They need help checking people in to the shoot, passing out and collecting waivers, supervising the snack area and helping out with props during the shoot. Also, if you are interested they would love to take your picture too! If you are able to attend this event please sign up below for a two hour shift.

Callen-Lorde Community Health Center provides sensitive, quality health care and related services targeted to New York’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities — in all their diversity — regardless of ability to pay.

San Francisco: From Putin to Pussy Riot and Beyond

Masha Gessen: From Putin to Pussy Riot and Beyond

Date: Wednesday, April 29th
Time: 6:15pm – 8:00pm
Place: Kanbar Hall, 3200 California Street, San Francisco
Cost: $40 for Member, $55 for Non-Member, $35 for Young Alum Member (Includes premium ticket, VIP reception, hors d’oeuvres, and beer/wine.)

Dartmouth Silicon Valley & DGALA, in concert with Arts & Ideas at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco, invites alumni and their guests to a special VIP evening with journalist Masha Gessen, in conversation with Peter Finn, National Security Editor, Washington Post.

Masha Gessen is a fearless Russian-American journalist noted for her opposition to Russian President Vladimir Putin, an LBGT activist who says that for many years she was “probably the only publicly out gay person” in Russia, and the author of The Man Without a Face: The Unlikely Rise of Vladimir Putin and Words Will Break Cement: The Passion of Pussy Riot. Her latest book, about the Tsarnaevs, the Chechen brothers suspected of perpetrating the Boston Marathon bombings, explores the struggle between assimilation and alienation that fueled their apparent metamorphosis into a new breed of homegrown terrorist.

In addition to Ms Gessen’s discussion, alumni and guests will meet in the “Green Room” for a private, Dartmouth VIP reception before the show.

Brooklyn Museum Event, Co-Sponsored by DCNY & BADA

This DGALA event, co-sponsored by the Dartmouth Club of New York and BADA, is not to be missed!
Co-hosted by Amanda Rosenblum ’07 and Lizzy Hennessey ’09

First, we will visit the Brooklyn Museum to view the new Kehinde Wiley exhibit. Kehinde is a gay black NYC-based artist who paints portraits of people of color in heroic poses. The NY Times has called the exhibit “mind-teasing,” “eye-catching,” and “hard to ignore“; “His paintings reflect some of the problems and pleasures of being alive right now, in times fraught with corrosive bigotry and inequality.” (Smith, 2015). While there, you can also view the Chitra Ganesh: Eyes of Time exhibit on female power and, of course, the permanent collections.

We will then after-party next door beginning at 4pm at Bar Sepia (234 Underhill Avenue). Light appetizers will be provided! Drinks are on you; full bar available for very reasonable prices. If it’s nice out, we can hang out in the backyard. Kids are welcome at Bar Sepia until sundown and encouraged to attend this event!

Note on Pricing: Youth (19 and under) are free at the museum, Student and Senior admission is $10, and you can get in for no charge with a new NYC Municipal ID card. All others are $16.

Event Details: April 19th, 2pm to 6pm
