Faculty, Staff, Administrators Invited to July LGBTQA Monthly Happy Hour
All University of Arkansas faculty, staff and administrators are invited to join the monthly Queer Beers LGBTQA Happy Hour.
The next event will be at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 12, at Bordinos on Dickson Street. "In past years these happy hours have been held during the academic year, but this year we decided to keep them going during the more flexible summer months. This has allowed attendees to take turns planning events at their favorite local spots" said Alex Dopp, one of the event organizors and an assistant professor in the Department of Psychological Science within the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences.
Attendees do not need to identify as LGBTQ to participate — all queer folk, partners, friends and allies are welcome. The goal of the happy hour is to build a more visible community and network among faculty, staff and administration as well as provide social support.
"We want to bring people together from all across the university and surrounding Northwest Arkansas community that might not otherwise meet or might not have the space to meet," said Justin Barnum, another event organizor and an instructor in the Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice.
