Yale Tight End Beau Palin Loves to Wear Old Glory: VIDEO


The Yale Daily News points out this amusing video family self-portrait by one of its football players:

"Tight end Beau Palin '14 stands at 6'3'' and weighs in at 240lbs. He worked in an Illinois mustard factory one summer and baled hay in Wisconsin during another one. He likes to wear the American flag. This is the story of him and his brothers at their home in Oconomowoc, WI."

Q, Yale University's first LGBTQ magazine is set for release on campus tomorrow, December 3.

Its editor, Jake Conway, and publisher, Alice Song, both class of '11, write:

"Its mission is to serve as a guide to students on campus through the celebration of the queer experience. The feature of the first issue, 'We Are Yale,' is a compilation of personal essays from ten students representing the diversity and vibrancy of queer life at Yale. Other articles include: 'Cruising or: How I learned to stop worrying and love the cock,' an exposé of cruising culture at Yale; 'The Lowdown: Lesbian Sex,' a short essay demystifying lesbian sex with accompanying photo shoot; 'Undressing Jonathan Weinberg,' an interview with nude portraitist and Yale art critic Jonathan Weinberg ’78; and 'Missing Pages: The Diary of Albert Dodd, 1838,' a historical essay discussing bed sharing between Yale men in the nineteenth century."

The magazine is to be published once a semester, in a print run of 2,500 copies for distribution to the entire campus.

Conway says the magazine will have an online component next semester.

Yalies of the Day


Love this photo - by Daniel Carvalho at the Yale Daily News.

Apparently, 25-year-old evangelical preacher Jesse Morrell has been attracting a crowd on campus:

"While Morrell failed to attract much attention from passersby during his first two days on campus, on Thursday afternoon, about 100 Yalies gathered to watch him rail against moral corruption at Yale. Several of those gathered wondered aloud if Morrell actually believed the things he said, and others heckled during his sermon, while others still took photos and videos on their cell phones. 'It seems like he’s really enjoying this, frankly,' Jeremy Poindexter ’11."
