Gender Studs Drag Kings
The Gender Studs: They're sexy, they're smooth, they'll talk queer theory to you all night long...
So maybe you are a groupie of the Gender Studies department's sexy drag troupe, the Gender Studs. Maybe you haven't been out for a night of fun in years. Either way, you do not want to miss *THE* DRAG EVENT OF THE YEAR, this coming Thursday, as part of the PRIDE Film Festival. Yep, that's right, the Gender Studs have made the big-time. Names in lights, up on the big stage, it it will be one hot spectacle of pride-lovin' kings and queers. Academics will enjoy an additional special treat playing 'spot the theorist' in the historical multimedia display. Fun for all, and kid-friendly* too!

Congratulations go out to:
Profs. Colin Johnson and Mary Gray (affiliate) for their award for a "Queering the Countryside" workshop. As a department, this grant will contribute to our profile as the epicenter of trans and rural queer studies, and it will provide the IU gender studies community at large with great intellectual opportunities in the coming year.
Prof. Brenda Weber received a CAHI travel grant to the UK for her project, "Reality Gendervision: Decoding Gender on Transatlantic Reality TV." Our gender and media studies is going transatlantic!
Professor Suzanna Walters has been awarded a CAHI for her new book project.
