Hello lovelies! What a great November we had. Last month's events were a great success.

We had the game night @Rose B (our new unofficial nickname for De Roze Beurs), the Queering Up Courses lectures on Linguistics by Eduardo Vieira and on Politics by Martijn Mos, and the totally fab Friendsgiving potluck dinner we organised with Philautia (you made a great variety of amazing dishes). Thanks for helping to make these events happen!

As for the students among us, good luck with your exams! Whether you're staying in Leiden for the holiday break, or you're going home to visit your family, please feel welcome to join us for the last event of the year: Karaoke ♥

Norwegian series SKAM and its international adaptations have become a staple in queer television. In these series, young adults and their peers take on issues of identity, intersectionality, and sexuality. The Spanish version that launched this year focuses, refreshingly, on the female perspective.


'Wide Awake' by David Levithan, written in 2006 is as relevant then as it is now. In a ficulative setting, where the political becomes personal and a gay Jewish man is being challenged as to his fitness to be president of the US, Levithan paints a character who is finding himself through representation in the country's highest political office.

WIRED writes about how one well-intentioned study led to a worrying DNA test for same-sex attraction. The research of big genetic data is in dire need of safeguards against dangers that are currently ignored.
