2011 Day of the Dead Celebration at MSU Dedicated to Victims of Homophobia November 1st, 2011. 4-9:30 PM In the United States Mexican communities have turned the Day of the Dead into a public celebration of Mexican/Chicano cultures, a venue to create art reflecting on collective experiences, an opportunity to bring the community together and a way to raise awareness of the issues affecting the lives of people in current times. In that spirit Michigan State University is presenting an exhilarating program of cultural, educational and artistic events centered on the Day of the Dead, and dedicated on this occasion to raise awareness on homophobia, prejudice against sexual orientation and hate crimes in the United States. The Michigan State University Museum, the Residential College in the Arts and the Humanities, the LBGT Resource Center, the Center for Gender in a Global Context, the History Department, the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, the LBGT Resource Center and the Office for Cultural and Academic Transitions, Mexa and CRU are hosting a Day of the Dead celebration on November 1st at Michigan State University. At the Museum there will be an ofrenda-installation, opening November 1st at 5 PM, dedicated to the victims of homophobia, prejudice and hate crimes, along with a program of diverse cultural activities (Aztec traditional dance, film, performance, presentations, vigil). The LBGT Resource Center will coordinate different activities by student organizations that address homophobic violence and prejudice in contemporary society.
