LGBTQ Events


We're in the middle of LGBTQ pride month at SMCM. We call it "Gaypril" (catchy, right?), but we're celebrating ALL gender identities and sexualities in the LGBTQ, etc. acronym. See below for the list of this year's events!

Film Screening: "My Beautiful Laundrette"

A young man in a Pakistani family living in London tries to balance gaining and holding a promising job with rekindling a relationship with a previous boyfriend. He struggles to fulfill his family's expectations and pressure to marry, while protecting himself and their love from his lover's prejudiced and violent friends.

Time and Place

Previous Gaypril Events

"The Laramie Project", by Moisés Kaufman - a staged reading
dir. Erica Burns 

The Laramie Project chronicles the life of the town of Laramie in the year after the murder of a young gay man named Matthew Shepard, using eight actors to embody more than sixty different people in their own words-from rural ranchers to university professors. The result is a complex portrayal that dispels the simplistic media stereotypes and explores the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable.

Time and Place

Wednesday, April 2, at 8:00 PM AND
Thursday, April 3 at 8:00 PM

in The White Room, Montgomery Hall
