DAASV & DGALA Event with Author Armistead Maupin

Tales of the City author Armistead Maupin
Date: Wednesday, January 28th
Time: 7:30pm – 9:30pm
Place: Kepler’s Books, 1010 El Camino Real, Menlo Park

It’s a rare thing for a book to capture a time and place as beautifully as Armistead Maupin’s original Tales of the City series did for 1970’s San Francisco. In the era of mood rings and discos, Maupin created a cast of characters he lovingly calls the “Logical Family” (as opposed to the biological family). Originally a newspaper serial in the San Francisco Chronicle, Maupin’s series started in 1976 and ends in 2013 with his final book, The Days of Anna Madrigal. DGALA is proud to co-sponsor this unique event with the DAASV.
To aid in the planning of this event, RSVP by January 25th. Please include the first and last name, and Dartmouth class (if applicable), of each attendee. Event costs $25 (includes signed copy of Maupin’s latest book).

Friendfactor, Dartmouth Run Non-Profit for LGBTQ Allies, Launches Fundraising Competition

Joanne Sprague ’04 and Chris Pearson Smith T’13 lead the non-profit Friendfactor to activate LGBT allies in business schools and workplaces across the country. Last week they launched a fundraising competition for alumni and Dartmouth is in the lead! Learn more about the program and become a supporter today:



Help us make business schools a great place to be for all students!

Friendfactor’s 3rd annual MBA Ally Challenge is in full swing, with 23 top US business schools competing to engage as many students as possible as allies to make their MBA programs great environments for their LGBT classmates.

To support the sustainability of the MBA Ally Challenge in 2015 and beyond, we’re inviting students, alumni, and friends to get in on the fun. Between now and Dec 31, 2014, you can contribute to Friendfactor on behalf of the school you love (or another group you feel close to), and have the chance to win prizes and props in addition to supporting your school’s commitment to equality. Details are below. Thank you for your commitment to activating allies for LGBT equality and creating spaces where every person can be proud of who they are!


There are two ways you can get involved:

  1. Donate on behalf of the school you love by clicking “Donate to a fundraiser” above and choosing your school from the Team dropdown list. You can also choose the “Unaffiliated” team.
  2. Set up your own group fundraising page by clicking “Set up your fundraiser”, and see if you and your friends or colleagues can beat out the best MBA programs in the country.

You can also invite your fellow alums and friends to join you in contributing to support your school or group. Just send them the direct URL link to your fundraising group page and that group will get credit for the donations you bring in!


To thank you and your friends for helping support the sustainability of this program, we’re giving out a number of perks for individual and group contributors:
