Spring, QSU Meeting #2



Loved Silvergreens

Would had been better to split what needs to be picked up. Too much for 1 driver.

Awards were really cute, adorable.

Definitely needed utensils, liquid soap,

Ask MCC about our number

$500 for Banquet and BBQueer


Delicious food

Seemed like QAPI disappointed with SCORE bc of the mixer

Brandon’s fault?

QAPI worked hard for mixer, SCORE was having an event, Brandon decided to collab everything together, he didn’t tell them beforehand, seemed like SCORE was taking over, 3 debriefings (intense), collaborating with orgs ends up being just adding names onto events but it should be about more.

We rely too much on Facebook . We should try other ways

Contacting every org to update Queer Calendar. Will be Evan’s job.

Collaborating was the main topic.

Talked about Beyond the Basics

It was supposed to have been QYLC

Talked about making a Queer Conference for UCSB only.

Meetings at QLC are a lot of talk but not a lot of action. This was talked about at the meeting. We should hold each other accountable for what we decide to do at these meetings.

Reaching out to FT!

Tabling, pool party at FT.

Talked about retention.

Let’s make our meetings more approachable



Steven ordered at Super Cucas. Will get price soon. Use BFSJ money to front. Talked to Tony about it.

Officer Check-ins

How is your week going?


Reflecting TED Talk Video: “Simon Sinek: How great leaders inspire action.” WHY DO WE DO QSU?

Morgan: Education


Tony: I didn’t come out til college. When coming out we can feel lonely. QSU allowed me to meet other people and to understand who I am as a person. I want to be a leader so I can help other people who feel like I did.


Tim: Where I’m from I never saw a queer community. I want to increase visibility. I’ve lived in places where to be gay is illegal. The fact that I can use my voice I want to utilize my voice for those who can’t use theirs.


Nick: I suppressed a lot of my identity til I came to UCSB.  It was amazing to find other people who are gay. My mom doesn’t get how there is still a lot of other struggles that people go through. As publicity chair I want to reach.


Alvaro: To surround myself around people who think critically about our social norms and celebrate their unique identities, and allow for others to reach the point where they are fully comfortable with their own identity.

Steven: Same as everyone. I see the problems in High School and the problems in college.


Melba: Community has been my number one thing.  I like surrounding myself with critical queers and people who challenge them and each other. I like giving back because so much has been given to me. Someone had to do something so we could be sitting here today. If someone can benefit from the work I’ve done, that would be awesome. I want to make sure that our campus is more friendly and open, and also spread that around for others.

Evan: This is still very new to me, I can connect with many other people who are still new to the community and provide an outside prospective.


In the future let’s remind ourselves why are we trying to host our meetings and why we are hosting events.  Tell our members why we are here for them.


Officer Contracts

Stuff that came up during discussion:

Our mental, physical, health comes before QSU.

Give constructive criticism that people can use as advice to develop personal strengths.

Respecting our meetings as a safe, closed space.

We are at a different position than our members where we should lead with example.

Drinking and Drugs only with responsibility and remembering accountability.

They want us to pay through PayPal, but that is too shady. Our A.S. system is way different.

From drag show: $400 for registration fees;  $250 for hotel; $$$ for advanced gas money.

We have allotted $110 per car for gas.

Check-in is at 3pm. Morgan, call hotel to make sure Melba can check in.
