GUPride hosting post-Inauguration 'self-care' event

A Georgetown University student group is encouraging its members to “embrace the inner child” after a stressful Inauguration week with stuffed animals, juice boxes, and Legos.

The "Post-inauguration self-care" event will be held on January 23, just as many students will be returning from protesting Donald Trump's inauguration.

A Georgetown University student group is encouraging its members to “embrace the inner child” after a stressful Inauguration week with stuffed animals, juice boxes, and Legos.

GUPride, a university-recognized student group for LGBTQ students and their allies, will be hosting a “Self-Care Night” on January 23 for members who spent too much time or energy on Inaugural activities.

The club invited its members to the event in a Welcome Back email, which was obtained by Campus Reform and included a section on “Post-inauguration self-care,” where GUPride urged its members to “embrace the inner child.”

“Join GUPride for a night of relaxation, recovery, and rest after a long week,” the email states. “There will be legos and stuffed animals and coloring books—come to embrace the inner child and hang out with people :)”

In addition to the Legos, stuffed animals, and coloring books, the Facebook event for the self-care night promises juice boxes, as well.

GUPride does not appear to have any Inauguration events scheduled, although the GU College Democrats will be making posters for and sending a group to Saturday’s Women’s March on Washington.
