Syracuse University Plans Over 30 Events for ‘LGBT History Month’

“provides an opportunity for the campus community to learn more about and celebrate the history, culture and contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex and asexual (LGBTQIA+) communities”

Do you think Syracuse plans this many events about American history around July 4th? I’m betting no.

Campus Reform reports:

University plans over 30 events for ‘LGBTQ+ History Month’

Syracuse University (SU) will celebrate LGBTQ+ History Month this October.

“LGBTQ+ History Month provides an opportunity for the campus community to learn more about and celebrate the history, culture and contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex and asexual (LGBTQIA+) communities through a host of educational events, social events and discussions,” the description reads.

The LGBTQ+ Resource Center planned over 30 events in partnership with “students and campus partners.”

Jacob Tobia, author of “Sissy: A Coming-of-Gender Story,” spoke on Oct. 11, which is National Coming Out Day.

Tobia’s book is “[a] heart-wrenching, eye-opening, and giggle-inducing memoir about what it’s like to grow up not sure if you’re (a) a boy, (b) a girl, (c) something in between, or (d) all of the above,” the description reads.

MSNBC contributor Paola Ramos will keynote an LGBTQ+ History Month event at Syracuse University on Oct. 13.

“Ramos uses… multimedia platforms… to uplift the voices of marginalized communities, break down stereotypes and mobilize people towards civic engagement,” the description reads.

The “Latinx Hispanic Heritage Month and Fourth Annual LGBTQ+ History Month Potash Keynote” is co-hosted by Multicultural Affairs and the LGBTQ Resource Center.

Ramos is also “an author, Emmy award-winning journalist and Latinx advocate,” according to the event page. It highlights her work at MSNBC and Telemundo News, and references her previous role as “former deputy director for Hispanic media for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.”

Other events include “Queer Trivia Night” on Oct. 12 and a “HalloQueen Ball” on Oct. 22

Comments

I suppose it’s fitting they picked October, the month children have a holiday where they dress up as something they aren’t.

“LGBTQ+ History Month provides an opportunity for the campus community to learn more about and celebrate the history, culture and contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual… over 30 events…”

Roughly one a day, like a big bottle of Vitamin D-viant.

Because heaven forbid a day go by without normal people being forced to celebrate the glory of gay and BIPOC people. Did you know that Karen Kennedy, who created the first crocheted COVID mask, was a lesbian? No, I didn’t and now my life is so much richer.

Will Aids be at the top of the list, and not just because of the alphabet?

What’s the cost for these events? Using student fee money?

You know Ramos doesn’t represent any Latino groups by calling her(?)self “la tinks.”

like “black history month” but even more irrelavant

It is still possible to slide thru the month skipping all that stuff, right?
