What to do tonight: Queer Carnival hosted by Queer Alliance

Queer Carnival

Tonight from 7–11 p.m., Brown’s Queer Alliance will be hosting the Queer Carnival on Pembroke Field, and everyone is welcome!

For those of you who don’t know, the QA is awesome and brings us the only Bill O’Reilly-air-time-worthy party of the year: SexPowerGod. For those of you wonderingunfortunately this event will require that you wear clothing… but there are lots of awesome goodies that will make you want to come anyway.

RISD will have a photo booth, Bluestockings Magazine will be present, and Roger Williams Law School is bringing a BOUNCY HOUSE! Looks like Spring Weekend is coming early this year. There will also free cotton candy and popcorn, a variety of carnival games, and a kissing booth (!)

Whether you plan on going hard at the club Friday night or going hard at the SciLi, you should definitely stop by the Queer Carnival. Ethos Nebula (otherwise known as DJ Ben) will be spinning the music. If you win the most games at the carnival, you get a free ticket to SPG (major score)!
