We love it when you give us art to post.

One of our very talented Teen space regulars shared this work on a manga-inspired comic he created. Thanks to Adebo for allowing us to post his work here.

SAGDA Meeting Minutes - 12/15/07

I'm proud to announce that the David Levithan afterparty is ON! David Levithan is speaking on Thursday, February 21st @ 7:00 PM. Our party will kick off around 8:00 PM and continue to 10:00 PM. Please plan on coming to both, and inviting all of your friends! Here's what we have in store so far (message me with additional info):

* LOTS OF ICE CREAM, both dairy and soy
* karaoke, via Singstar POP edition
* "gender deconstruction" crafts
* music, maybe?

What are your thoughts? What can we do to make this a night to remember?

We had our last meeting last Saturday, December 15th. In addition to playing an intense game of Apples to Apples, we met with representatives from Closing the Gap, a new initiative from the Persad Center. Closing the Gap is a peer counseling program that is looking for paid counselors between the ages of 14-18. If you want more information, or to obtain an application, you can download all the files here

We hope to see you at the next meeting (first of 2008), on Saturday, January 5th. As always, it will be at 2:00 PM and on the second floor of Kiva Han (420 S. Craig St.). Have a great day, and a wonderful 2008!

Best wishes,
