This evening, Unity House published an open letter to allstu and on Facebook noting the positive support the group has received from the community after rainbow flags were stole from their North Campus Apartment this past weekend. For our readers who do not receive allemp or allstu or do not follow Unity House on Facebook, the full letter appears after the jump with details of the group’s next plan of action.
Unity House has sent out an open letter regarding the rainbow flags that were torn from their door this past weekend. For those of our readers who do not receive allemp or allstu, the full letter appears after the jump. The authors of the letter allude to The Thrill‘s recent post “Deb Ball is for Faggots.”
If you’re a girl who likes girls, a boy who likes boys, a girl who likes boys, a boy who likes girls, a person who likes puppies or just someone who’s ever felt kind of weird about how hard it is to deal with the existence of other people, Dannielle Owens-Reid and Kristin Russo are here for you. If you’re not actually gay, don’t worry: Everyone is Gay seeks to dispense advice and humor to all those who need it, no matter the particulars of identity. As their website puts it, the duo “strives to encourage a deeper understanding of LGBTQ issues, to constantly examine how those issues intersect with other communities, to promote peer advocacy and to provide outreach and resources to all.”
Sound good to you? It should, because Dannielle and Kristin are awesome. Even better, they’re going to be here, on this campus, in less than12 hours. Unity House (obviously) is sponsoring the event, which takes place tonight at 7:30 p.m. in Peirce Pub. It’ll be short, enlightening and hilarious. And did I mention it’s National Coming Out Day? You have no excuse not to attend. (Except seminar, depending on the subject matter of your seminar.)
