One year ago today, scientist from our Museum of Natural History announced the discovery of a new mammal species—the olinguito. Looking like a cross between a cat and a teddy bear, it was destined to become a media sensation. In fact, its widespread publicity has helped scientists learn even more about this species in the past year.

Now I’ve also seen banners hanging from the building in the U-Dist promoting different sermon series throughout the year. I’m not certain but wouldn’t be surprised to learn these are from the main church as well.

LGBTQ* Film History You Should Know

WINGS (1927, Academy Award Winning Film)

What is it about?

Two young men, one rich, one middle class, who are in love with the same woman become fighter pilots in World War I.

Why is it important?

This film is the oldest surviving footage of a same-sex onscreen kiss and often believed to be the FIRST same-sex kiss on film. WINGS is an important addition to film and queer history with its honest portrayal of the bond and interaction between two men as watched by an audience via celluloid prior to the “macho - men are men” attitude which would go on to flood mentality and film a decade later.
