"Hi everyone!I hope you’re all doing great! Just an update on our events this week:Our Gaymes night is taking place as usual in JHT2 on Tuesday, from 6.30 to 9pm. We’ll be taking a break from Jackbox for the week to play UNO and Cards Against Humanity together. We’ll have a few different groups set up in the room with different games ?Our coffee morning as usual will take place in the Info Centre in the SU from 10-12. However, during our coffee morning this week we will be collaborating with Arts and Crafts soc to have a poster making session for the Trans and Intersex protest that takes place on this Saturday 19th November. (Just a note about the protest itself- our Trans and Nonbinary officer Lee wants to arrange a meeting point for those going on Saturday in case anyone feels cautious about attending alone. This will probably be arranged in the WhatsApp group closer to the date, so keep an eye on that if you’re interested!)On Thursday we will be continuing with our Queer Book Club. We’re in SE009 this week, instead of TSI. We had a ready great turnout last week and we hope to see as many there this week! For anyone who is unaware, we are reading Loveless by Alice Oseman.Also, a note on something important:The Open Closet, which is a pop-up charity shop organised by MSU and Pride Society is being held on the 23rd and 24th of November. This isn’t until next week, but we are taking donations up until Tuesday next week, so if you have some clothes that you don’t wear and think could have a better home with some one else, drop it in to us at the Info Centre!We’ve also finally set up our Discord server! Link is attached below. I’ll be hoping to start up the weekly Gaybates on there sometime this week, so keep an eye on that! That’s all for this week, hope to see you around! "

"Hi everyone! I hope you’re all doing well! I hope everyone’s Halloween was fab and you had a good rest over reading week. As we’re back on campus this week our events will be resuming, so just a quick note about those: GAYMES and Coffee Morning Today (Tuesday), we will be continuing on with our collab with Games Soc on “Gaymes Night.” There will be a slight change to the times from now on: we will be starting at 6:30pm instead of 6pm and will finish up around 9pm. It will take place in JHT2, same as last time, however there was some confusion about where exactly that is in John Hume (its actually not signposted at all which is really weird but anyway.) When you go up the main stairs in JH and get to the top, follow the hallway around the right, go past the entrance to JH1 and around the corner, and it’s the first door on the left. Much like last week, there is no pressure to stay with us all evening, you can pop in and out of the other Games Soc rooms ? On Wednesday, as per, we’ll be having our coffee morning in the info center in the SU from 10am to 12pm. Reminder again for anyone who has a reusable coffee cup to bring it if you can. Pride Book Club For some exciting news, we’re happy to announce the launch of our book club this Thursday! Over reading week, you all voted on Instagram to have your say in what book you wanted to read and discuss with us. The winning book was Loveless by Alice Oseman. Loveless has great asexual and aromantic rep, so be sure to come along! The way we’re running this book club is we will get together and read, rather than expecting you to read by yourself like other book clubs. Loveless is available in the Maynooth University bookshop in John Hume, who are kindly giving members a discount when buying. We are yet to get confirmation on a venue for this event, but I will follow up in another email whenever I get news on that. Pink Training In other news, we also have an announcement about “Pink Training”. “Pink Training” is Europe’s largest LGBT+ Conference, which sees over 300 delegates attend a weekend of residential training. With talks, workshops and plenary sessions, Pink Training is about all things LGBT+, as well as activism, mental health, campaigning, leadership, and the diversity of our community. “Pink Training” takes place in NUIG on the weekend of the 18th to the 20th of November, and costs 100 euro to attend. This covers your accommodation in Galway, your meals and the workshops and entertainment taking place for the weekend. This is a wonderful event for anyone interested in learning more about these topics. We have an expression of interest form, so let us know if you’d like to attend: https://forms.gle/YCAZpC4m5dBtneAU8That’s all for this week, I hope to see you around at our events this week. Best of luck for everyone with assignments due this week and next! (Apologies on the delay for the email everyone.) "
"Hi everyone! I hope you're all enjoying the time off from college this week, and everyone has a good Halloween tonight (or Samhain if you celebrate!) Brief note to stay safe tonight, I know we're old enough, but accidents still happen so please be responsible tonight if you're celebrating- that goes for alcohol, drugs, fireworks, anything that could be a hazard tonight. Thanks Quick note to say thank you for everyone who supported our Halloween event "Gay Christmas". With your help we've raised over 300 euro to go towards Purple Training, so a big thank you is owed. Book Club Obviously as we're on reading week, we don't have any events planned, but I'm coming to you with an update on the book club: One of Pride Soc's initiatives this year is to establish a queer book club to offer members a chance to engage with queer literature, both fiction and non-fiction in an inclusive and accessible way. You're not an avid reader? You have too much reading to do for college and don't feel like you can commit to reading another book? Well, this book club is designed to be for you. Instead of expecting you to read beforehand, we plan on convening once a week and reading together so that nobody feels left out. We're planning to host our first meeting on Thursday November 10th in conjunction with the Literary and Debating Society and to meet every Thursday thereafter. However, in advance of our launch we need to decide on the first book! We've put together a short list of 8 books which we are asking you our pride soc members to vote on. The list is as follows: Queer Sex - Juno Roche; In this frank, funny and poignant book, transgender activist Juno Roche discusses sex, desire and dating with leading figures from the trans and non-binary community. Calling out prejudices and inspiring readers to explore their own concepts of intimacy and sexuality, the first-hand accounts celebrate the wonder and potential of trans bodies and push at the boundaries of how society views gender, sexuality and relationships. Empowering and necessary, this collection shows all trans people deserve to feel brave, beautiful and sexy. Bad Gays - Huw Lemy & Ben Miller; Part revisionist history, part historical biography and based on the hugely popular podcast series, Bad Gays subverts the notion of gay icons and queer heroes and asks what we can learn about LGBTQ history, sexuality and identity through its villains and baddies. From the Emperor Hadrian to notorious gangster Ronnie Kray, the authors excavate the buried history of queer lives. This includes fascist thugs, famous artists, austere puritans and debauched bon viveurs, imperialists, G-men and architects. The Gender Games - Juno Dawson; Featuring insights from well-known gender, feminist and trans activists including Rebecca Root, Laura Bates, Gemma Cairney, Anthony Anaxagorou, Hannah Witton, Alaska Thunderfuck and many more, The Gender Games is a frank, witty and powerful manifesto for a world in which everyone can truly be themselves. Gender: A Graphic Guide - Meg-John Barker; The book looks at how gender has been ‘done’ differently – from patriarchal societies to trans communities – and how it has been viewed differently – from biological arguments for sex difference to cultural arguments about received gender norms. It dives into complex and shifting ideas about masculinity and femininity, look at non-binary, trans and fluid genders, and examines the intersection of experiences of gender with people’s race, sexuality, class, disability and more. Black Flamingo- Dean Atta; A boy comes to terms with his identity as a mixed-race gay teen - then at university he finds his wings as a drag artist, The Black Flamingo. A bold story about the power of embracing your uniqueness. Sometimes, we need to take charge, to stand up wearing pink feathers - to show ourselves to the world in bold colour. Loveless - Alice Oseman; This wise, warm and witty story of identity and self-acceptance sees Alice Oseman on towering form as Georgia and her friends discover that true love isn’t limited to romance. Everyone on the Moon is Essential Personnel - Julian K. Jarboe; In this debut collection of body-horror fairy tales and mid-apocalyptic Catholic cyberpunk, memory and myth, loss and age, these are the tools of storyteller Jarboe, a talent in the field of queer fabulism. Bodily autonomy and transformation, the importance of negative emotions, unhealthy relationships, and bad situations amidst the staggering and urgent question of how build and nurture meaning, love, and safety in a larger world/society that might not be "fixable." Finna - Nino cipri; Nino Cipri's Finna is a rambunctious, touching story that blends all the horrors the multiverse has to offer with the everyday awfulness of low-wage work. It explores queer relationships and queer feelings, capitalism and accountability, labor and love, all with a bouncing sense of humor and a commitment to the strange. Voting will be taking place over the next 3 days on our Instagram story so head on over there to have your say. The first 4 are non-fiction, and the latter 4 are fiction. Head on over to instagram (link below) if you're interested in reading any of these! Enjoy the rest of your week, and we'll see you all back next week!"

"Hi all, It's that time of the week again! There is an update to our events this week:On Tuesday we will not be having a Movie night like the previous two weeks, but instead we will be doing a collab with Games Society called "Gaymes Night," that at 6pm. As there is a huge crossover of Pride Soc and Games Soc members, we thought it would be nice to combine the two, as our events were on the same evening and people were conflicted on which to go to... but now you can do both at the same time!! Our "Gaymes" room will be JHT2, but you can pop in and out of other rooms. :)On Wednesday we have our coffee morning in the SU info centre at 10-12 as usual. Reminder to bring a reusable coffee cup if you have one. And finally, on Thursday (27th) we have our Halloween event "Gay Christmas". I've already sent an email about this last week, but for a reminder, it takes place in The Venue in the Students Union and doors open at 7. There will be a prize for the best dressed so come in costume! All proceeds go towards our annual event "Purple Training." Tickets are on sale on Eventbrite for 3 euro: https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/444604222197 I hope you all come along to the events this week as next week is reading week and we won't see you!!! xoxox"
"Hi everyone,Hope you all had a great weekend! Just an update on this week’s events;Unfortunately, we’ve had a delay with organising the book club, so we probably won’t get to start until after reading week. Keep an eye on the socials where we’ll be having a poll to see what books we’ll read, and hopefully get that launched for the first week back.Instead of that, we’ll be running another movie night this Tuesday in IONTAS. We’ll be meeting at 6 to watch “Carol” but we won’t start the movie until about 6.45 or so. We won’t be providing pizza this time, but we’ll have popcorn and you’re encouraged to bring your own snacks!Our coffee morning will be Wednesday from 10-12 in the SU Info Centre (same as last week.) We’ll be providing the coffee, but if you have a reusable coffee cup, please bring it! (Also feel free to bring snacks.)Hope to see you all soon! ------- Wren Brennan (they/them), Secretary. "
"Hi all,I'm happy to be sending my first weekly email as secretary. I hope by now you’ve all settled in if you’re in first year, or settled back in if you’re not!This week will be the start of our weekly events (finally!)Tomorrow (Tuesday 11th) we will be hosting our first regular evening meeting. We’ll be watching “Pride”, which personally is one of my favourite movies ever. It will be taking place at 6.30pm in JH1 and we’ll be ordering pizza. On Wednesday, we’ll be holding our coffee morning in the Student Union Info Centre (Your Space- this is where we held our AGM) from 10 till 12.

"Haigh a chairde/Hello friends! Happy Monday! I mean Mondays suck in general however this Marks the start of SHAG week so there will be many wonderful and queer/sex positive events taking place in the SU throughout the week. Although Pride Soc aren't organising these events, we highly recommend going. Info on the events will be shared on the MSU intagram @maynooth_su. If you're worried about going by yourself or not knowing anybody there, drop a message into our WhatsApp chat and I'm sure you'll find a queer buddy to join you <3 Pride Soc AGMI emailed about this last week, however for all of the wonderful new people who joined during the recruitment drive last week, our AGM will be taking place tomorrow Tuesday October 4th at 6.30pm in the MSU Info Centre (aka Your Space). For those who don't know, the AGM is where we elect committee members and also decide the direction of the society for the year. Unfilled committee positions include treasurer, secretary, vice president and first year Rep. Even if you don't feel like putting yourself forward for a committee position, come along anyway as it will be a great chance to meet our members. We're hoping also to have pizza and snacks so there is that. Queer MoviesThis Wednesday October 5th at 7pm, there will be a screening of a queer movie taking place in the MSU venue as part of SHAG week. The movie we have chosen to screen is The Rocky Horror Picture Show - I know, classic! So I hope to see a few of you there repping the queers :) #WheresMyLevyAs a final note I'd like to draw everyone's attention to MSU's #WheresMyLevy campaign. Again for those who don't know, since 2015 the university has been collecting a student levy, essentially a tax that you pay directly to the university on top of your fees, which was supposed to be used to deliver a new state of the art student centre. On Monday last week the University announced that the construction of that project, which was supposed to be delivered by 2019, has been cancelled, despite the university having collected somewhere between 15m and 20m euro over the last 7 years. The Student's Union (of which we are all members) is planning to take action in light of this decision. This Thursday October 6th at 11.11am Students are being encouraged to walk out of their lectures and congregate at the Tent outside the John Hume Building for a rally. MSU is asking for your support. Remember, this is your money which the university has stolen. With your support and the support of the whole student body we will find out where that money went and we will see the university commit to a new student centre. So tell your friends, tell your classmates. We're not outnumbered, we're out organised! That conclude's this weekly update! It's a pretty jam packed one so I hope it's not too overwhelming. I hope to see some of out out at the events this week,Le bród/With Pride, Steph Collins (They/Them) President. "

"Congratulations on your CAO results! Whether Maynooth was your first choice or not, I can assure you that you will love it here. On behalf of the Drama society I would like to welcome you to the college, as well as our society. We have lots of things going on for first-years, including our annual Debutantes Festival, which is a collection of short plays solely starring first-year actors. This is the perfect opportunity to dip your toe into acting and make new friends right of the bat. If you're not into acting, we will also have lots of opportunities to help out with all areas of theatre production (directing, costume, props, set, tech etc).We will be outside John Hume on Tuesday the 20th, and Thursday the 22nd of September from 1-4pm, and you can also find our stand at the Fairs Day the following week. Come and say hello, we'd love to get to know you! :)xx Jule"
