The Harvard Gender & Sexuality Caucus (HGSC) cordially invites you to our 2020 Virtual Holiday Celebration Cocktail Party.

Since we can't be together in person this year, we're looking forward to celebrating the season with you virtually! It has been a very hard year for many of our Members and we want to try to provide some fun before the close of 2020. The evening's festivities will include a brief chat with Professor Evelynn Hammonds on the 2020-2021 HGSC theme of Intersectionality: Race and LGBTQ+ Rights, a signature cocktail making demonstration presented by Harvard Student Agencies, a celebratory toast with your beverage of choice, member spotlights, and plenty of small group networking – fellowship opportunities. 


When: Sunday, December 20, 2020  8 p.m. - 9 p.m. EST

Where: Wherever YOU are! Hosted virtually via Zoom.




2020 Guest of Honor

Dr. Evelynn Hammonds

Intersectionality: Race and LGBTQ+ Rights


We have two special requests to celebrate the end of an extremely challenging year and to celebrate the optimism that 2021 brings. We want and need to hear from you!


  1. Take a fun selfie with something that represents you and your city in the background. Feel free to include your partner, pets, and/or kids in the selfie. Send us the photo to be included in a slideshow to be shown as part of the event. (Include your name, city, Harvard school, and Harvard class with your submissions.)
  2. Let us know if you would be willing to speak for 15-30 seconds to the group at the cocktail party. We would like you to introduce yourself, your partner, your pets, kids, etc. Tell us from where you're currently "zooming in", Harvard Class, AND the answer to this question : “Name one thing you were grateful for this year."

          Please don’t be shy! We are counting on you to bring a little bit of the party!

          To express interest in making a brief introduction and/or to submit your selfies, please email no later than December 19, 2020.


Fun Fact: Did you know that the classic "Cosmopolitan" cocktail has links to the Gay Rights Movement?

This classic cosmo will serve as our signature drink of the evening. Feel free to make your own or simply follow along with the Harvard Student Agencies demonstration. If "mocktails" are more your style, simply replace the vodka with gingerale and the triple sec with simple syrup.
















We look forward to seeing you on Sunday, December 20!
