Gay Alumni Gather For Homecoming

 BLOOMINGTON, IN -- The Indiana University Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Alumni Association's Homecoming 2011 will be held this weekend (Jan. 28-30), coinciding with the Bloomington Pride Film Festival for the third consecutive year.


"The GLBT Alumni Association Homecoming events have truly become a much anticipated annual part of our social calendar," said Rob DeCleene, GLBTAA president. "With confirmed attendees from as far away as California, the weekend is a testament to the thriving network of GLBT alumni, friends, faculty, staff and students of Indiana University -- the rainbow spotlight promises to shine brightly on Bloomington that weekend."

In addition to the film festival, weekend highlights include a reception and silent auction at Grazie Italian Eatery; a continuing education seminar, "Rainbow Law and Money: Planning for Your Future," covering domestic partner benefits, adoption and financial planning; and a popular social at the Kinsey Institute Gallery where this year's special exhibit is "As We See Them: Exotic and Erotic Images from Modern Alternative Process Photographers."

"From 2009 to 2010 the GLBTAA Homecoming more than doubled in attendance," says Rachael Jones McAfee, director, alumni programs. "The Kinsey event alone had at least 240 in attendance last year. The Homecoming brings the community back to the IU Bloomington campus."

The IU GLBTAA is an affiliate group of the IU Alumni Association. The IU Alumni Association is dedicated to serving the university and its diverse alumni, students and friends. As one of the nation's largest alumni organizations, serving more than 540,000 graduates worldwide, the IUAA provides many programs and services to its members, nonmember alumni, and the university.
