I definitely take the blame for not blogging about this earlier, but the University of Louisville’s Pride Week is this week, with LOTS of great events.

It’s not too late to get involved. A complete schedule is listed, but the keynote event will be an address by transgenders activist Calpernia Adams and Andrea James on Thursday, 7-9 PM in the Humanities building, room 100, with an after party immediately following at Starbase Q.
