The Shorthorn is relaunching our weekly To-Do List but with stay-at-home events. Originally, we would compile a list of events happening across North Texas. Our modified list offers innovative ways to stay active, entertained and informed during these uncertain times.

This week includes an international coming together of world-famous celebrities, an intimate local concert series and a how-to baking guide.

Here is this week’s To-Do list.


A decorated float stands idle before the start of the 36th annual Alan Ross Texas Freedom Parade during Dallas Pride 2019 on June 2 at Fair Park. The LGBTQ+ program will be hosting Connexions, a virtual hangout for members and allies to chat and feel safe.


Feeling down? Want someone to talk to or just hang out with? UTA’s LGBTQ+ Program will be hosting Connexions via Zoom on Friday from 12:15 to 1 p.m.

The meeting is used as a safe space for students of all identities and backgrounds to speak candidly, make connections with other students and use the online hangout space for resources and healing practices.
