“work to create safe spaces for people of all sexualities”
I wonder how many organizations there are for conservative students. I’m guessing it’s not twelve.
The College Fix reports:
Virginia Tech features 12 separate LGBTQ organizations
A large southern university hosts a total of 12 different LGBTQ organizations as well as an LGBTQ resource center, an arrangement that has led it to receive high marks by a national gay campus watchdog group.
Campus officials, however, remain silent on how much of the school’s budget goes to fund these groups, and not a single one of the groups responded to repeated inquiries from The College Fix.
Virginia Tech’s various LGBTQ groups include HokiePRIDE, TransSpace, Queer and Trans People of Color, Prism Society, and Out in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, according to the website of the school’s LGBTQ+ Resource Center.
The groups promote a diverse assortment of missions and causes. HokiePRIDE, according to its Facebook page, was originally founded in 1971 as the Gay Student Alliance.
“We, the diverse gender and sexuality and allied population of Virginia Tech, will work to create safe spaces for people of all sexualities, gender identities and expressions,” reads its mission statement, in part.
TransSpace is “a place where trans individuals can share resources with each other in a conversational manner.” According to its Facebook page, the organization hopes to “provide a safe space for Virginia Tech students (undergrad and graduate), faculty, and alumni under the trans umbrella to meet each other, form community, and discuss issues relevant to their identities and to their lives in general.”
