This event, a new tradition, is an evening of information sharing, networking, fellowship and dessert. The Rainbow Reception is an opportunity for UNI students, faculty and staff to welcome lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and ally students back to campus for the new academic year.

We’ve got nothing to hide. 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. Sponsored by UNI Proud, the Queer Monologues is a production created and maintained by a community of individuals who want to raise awareness about lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans* and queer issues on campus and in society. Be prepared for a night of joy, sorrow and perhaps a little hilarity! Free admission.
Evan Ross, Nia Long, Danny Glover, Roger Guenveur Smith, Summer Bishil and Dorian Missick star in a groundbreaking new film about a Muslim boy who comes of age while in college against a politically charged 9/11 backdrop, with deep personal and familial traumas to overcome, and a search for identity that must reconcile his own difficult history with his new changed reality. The film's writer/director, Qasim "Q" Basir, will lead a discussion following the showing. Hosted in part by the Northern Iowa Student Government, Campus Activities Board, and the Center for Multicultural Education.
