Alan Cumming Is Coming To Penn This Week!

QPenn 2012 will be celebrating LGBT life on campus with a bunch of neato events this week, but the event’s keynote speaker is particularly noteworthy. Actor Alan Cumming will be speaking at Meyerson Hall on Saturday at 6 p.m. on LGBT issues and taking audience questions.

In addition to his groundbreaking performance as Floop in Spy Kids, Cumming won a Tony for his role as the Emcee in Cabaret and was Emmy-nominated for his current role in CBS’ The Good Wife. Our favorite? Piers Cuthberson-Smyth from Spice World, duh.

Get your tickets now and start cumming up with your questions about what it was like to work with Baby Spice and the rest of the gang.

If St. Patrick’s Day is an indicator of Flings to come, then we feel safe saying that the rest of this semester will be something of a marathon for our livers. But let’s put the past behind us and look forward to all the très chic stuff happening on campus this week:

QPenn 2012: Do Ask , Do Tell
Who: Multiple groups; see above link
When and where:
March 18th-25th; see above link
Why: Penn is pretty gay (really!), and it’s because of awesome things like QPenn that the Penn community is seen to be one of the most socially progressive schools in the nation. From lectures to rainbow hamentaschen baking to drag makeup workshops, you’ll find plenty to do.
