The Fun Continues!

ACOG runs through midnight tonight, and there is lots going on. Let's look at the highlights for the coming hours...

TRΛNS DΛNS: n̷o̷n̷CONVENTIONa̷l̷

From DJ Xero:

Please join me as I present TRΛNS DΛNS: n̷o̷n̷CONVENTIONa̷l̷

Spinning a mix of pop, edm, retro classics, pan-alternative, nerdy favorites, & so much more!

In honor of everything Arisia and its community does to support, inform, and uplift its LGBTQIAA+ members, TRΛNS DΛNS will be raising funds for Boston Alliance of LGBTQ+ Youth (BAGLY), a youth-led, adult-supported organization committed to social justice, and creating, sustaining and advocating for programs, policies and services for the LGBTQ+ youth community.

Learn more at bagly.org.
A link to make donations for the event will be found during the event at bit.ly/TransDansArisia

The dance will run from 10pm until 2am.  There is also a matching channel for chatting during the dance, #djxero-trλns-dλns-stream-chat under "Streaming".

On the Gaming Front

Cookie Clicker (running from 6 to 7pm this evening) is a game about making an absurd amount of cookies. To help you in this endeavor, you will recruit a wide variety of helpful cookie makers, like friendly Grandmas, Farms, Factories, and otherworldly Portals. You’ll start a new game in our just-for-fun tournament. How many cookies can you make in one hour? We’ll play online at https://orteil.dashnet.org/cookieclicker/ where it’s free. Click here to sign up.

There will be more light Jackbox Games this evening!  Go to jackbox.tv to play along.  There are two separate sessions, each with their own Zoom, one from 7-9pm, and another from 11pm-midnight.

Art Show

Don't forget -- there will be another chance to meet and chat with the Artists of Arisia from 6-7:30pm this evening.  Tonight's guests include I.S. Kallick, Erica Morton, Kendra Tornheim, Julia Burns Lieberman, and Anne Nydam (tentative.)  Come say hi!

The Virtual Club Dance

Saturday January 15th for The Virtual Club Dance and Sunday January 16th for RETRO an 80s and 90s themed dance. While we may not be able to gather in person we can still celebrate the times that have passed and look forward to a brighter future. All streams starting at 9pm EST only at Twitch.tv/DJDIRGE.
