    misha magdalene moriquendi was found in a mushroom ring at the heart of a forest grove in an age before cellphones, and was raised on a steady diet of smog lollies, boxed macaroni, and yellow-spined paperback novels. xie was initiated into the mysteries of gender-of mutual transgresSion and shameful , shameless ecstasy-around the time most of xir colleagues were dancing in gymnasiums. xie is older now, and has scraped off most of the shame and macaroni. (xie still likes lollies and paperbacks, though. )

    The Social Justice Organizers are a student-staff group that works to educate and hold dialogue with the campus community about topics like social justice, identity, injustice, and liberation.

    Pride Alliance is a UWB stUdent club committed to creating a safe, respectful space for UWB's LGBTQ community and its allies.

    Cascadia Student Life offers events, programs, and services which encourage stUdent involvement in the campus community and enhance the educational aspects of Cascadia.

    The Writing and Communication Center (WaCC) supports students of all abilities, at any stage of the reading, writing, or presentation process.

    Thank you for reading! A Page From Our Books: LGBTQIA+ Zine Workshop was one of a few LGBTQIA+ community-building events this year, along with a pride photo booth, friendship-braceletand button-making hangout. It's my hope that this zine will continue creating community and inspire more people to write, draw, collage, list, and share their stories and themselves.
