7.30pm – Gender Neutral Ceilidh @ Emmanuel UCR (opposite Pembroke)

Event page HERE

Cambridge University Amnesty International is hosting an exciting gender neutral ceilidh, throwing away gendered calling in order to open this fantastically fun, traditional folk dance to those who don’t identify within the gender binary! Tickets £7 at or £8 on the door. Click here to get them before they’re gone!

“If you have never been to a ceilidh before, there are two things that you need to know. Firstly, it’s pronounced ‘kaylee’ and secondly they are very fun! Similar to country or barn dances, there will be live music played by the wonderful Cambridge University Ceilidh Band. Instructions are shouted out by a ‘caller’ and walked through a couple of times, then the band joins in and you follow what eveyone else does. You need no dancing skills whatsoever and if you have a poor concept of right and left this only makes the night more amusing!

Since the ceilidh is gender neutral there will be no gendered calling, and we have a ‘caller’ who has experience hosting gender neutral ceilidhs. All profits made will be donated to Amnesty International which works to protect the rights of LGBT+ identifying people across the world.

Monday 16/02

7pm (TBC) – “What is love?” DISCUSSION NIGHT (Venue TBC – Follow the Facebook Page for more details.)

This is a discussion about that weird elusive thing called love. Why is everyone chasing after it? What’s the big deal? Think about Valentines Day from an aromantic perspective. Can asexuals ever find love? What about asexual-sexual partnerships? Again precise details to be confirmed.

16/02-22/02 – Non-romantic “secret valentines” in celebration of aromantic awareness week

If people could email als94@cam.ac.uk, their name and college to get involved. Idea is to get silliest/funniest present for under £5 and send via UMS by 16th Feb. Extra points if its aro-related. Open to all, but with a focus on raising aromantic awareness.
