The Queer Monologues

The Queer Monologues, inspired by the Vagina Monologues, is a production aimed at inspiring collaboration, conspiring for equal rights and sending the message that it’s okay to be who you are, even if society thinks you’re a little queer. 

Film Screening: "(A)sexual"

"(A)sexual" follows the growth of a community that experiences no sexual attraction. In a society obsessed with sex, how do you deal with life as an outsider? Combining intimate interviews, vérité footage and animation with humor and pop culture imagery, the film attempts to answer this question.

Poetry Slam and Open Mic Night

Do you enjoy listening to poetry? Are you looking for an opportunity to showcase some of your original work? If you answered yes to either of these questions, come to the CME for an exciting poetry event. The night’s program gives audience members a chance to hear some seasoned poets recite their original poetry, along with the opportunity to participate in an open mic session. Refreshments will be served.

CME Lecture: Lela Lee

Cartoonist Lela Lee will be presenting and discussing her cartoon “Angry Little Asian Girl,” and her books Angry Little Girls.  Characters experience and express anger in various ways. The strips are often both humorous and thought-provoking. Come listen to how Lela Lee overcame the odds, as many told her “there is just no market for Asians” and her characters. She not only beat this insulting stereotype, but has published several books, comics, and has her own website. This is the 20th anniversary of Angry Little Asian Girls.
