“to address physio-psychosocial needs that can arise in individuals as they journey along their gender and sexual selves”
Why does student debt need to be cancelled when schools have this kind of cash to spend on LGBT programs?

‘Binding for Beginners’: University spends over $200k on LGBTQ+ initiatives
Indiana University’s (IU) Indiana University Foundation (IUF) is allocating $208,700 towards 10 LGBTQ+ initiatives at five IU campuses through its Queer Philanthropy Circle Grants.
Funded projects include a ‘gender-affirming closet,’ hormone therapy, ‘sexual holistic’ healthcare, an LGBTQ+ Studies speaker series, and a queer media program.
IU’s Office of the Vice President for Diversity, Equity, and Multicultural Affairs tweeted on July 6 that the grant funding would “support diversity and inclusion efforts across Indiana University.”
The gender-affirming closet at IU Bloomington provides LGBTQ+ students with free clothes that match their perceived gender identity, including dresses, tops, bottoms, bras, shoes, outerwear, and accessories like headbands and bracelets.
IU Bloomington’s LGBTQ+ Culture Center, another funding recipient, offers trans video tutorials, such as ‘Binding for Beginners,’ ‘period advice for trans guys,’ ‘Queer Polyamory’ and ‘Asexuality & Aromanticism.’
Medical care initiatives funded by IU include “access to gender-affirming hormone therapy.” They are intended to create “a holistic therapeutic environment to address physio-psychosocial needs that can arise in individuals as they journey along their gender and sexual selves.”
