Campus holds fourth annual NOISE event
Two Penn State Berks student groups, the Rainbow Alliance and Campus Activities Board, have organized the fourth annual NOISE event, which serves to raise awareness of contemporary issues surrounding the LGBTA community at Penn State Berks and beyond. The event will be held on Thursday, April 19, 2012, in the Perkins Student Center Multipurpose Room.
Prior to the main celebration, there will be a Trans Identity and Ally Workshop, which will be held at 4:30 p.m. in the Multipurpose Room. This workshop is being facilitated by two of the night's performers, and it is meant to establish a sense of unity among allies and members of the LGBTA community.
The actual NOISE event will begin at 9 p.m. The event includes comedian Thomas Dale, the Athens Boys Choir, musician Katastrophe, and various Penn State Berks student performers.
This year’s NOISE event will be held the day before the National Day of Silence, a day the members and allies of the LGBTA community choose to silence themselves to take a stand on oppression in society.
