    Hello MAGIRT members,

    You are invited to an upcoming event that MAGIRT is putting on with a few other ALA round tables, GameRT's Queertacular. This event is open to the public, so please feel free to share with your networks. Read on for our call for volunteers and all the details on the big event!

    If you plan to attend, please save this event to your calendars now. The save-the-date calendar invite for Outlook is attached. The Google Calendar link is below.


    MAGIRT Volunteers are needed to help plan MAGIRT's contribution to the program. MAGIRT will be sharing our love of maps through a presentation on maps relating to queer culture and queer geography. We will also be contributing an interactive queer culture-themed game in the style of Worldle. 

    We are in need of:

    1. Suggestions of maps from your or other collections that portray queer geography and queer culture.

    2. Help with the logistics of our Queertacular-themed map game riffing on Worldle.

    If you are interested in helping, please fill out the Google form:
