  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]
  • A Theatrical Rivalry with Love and Despair
    By Jay Grummel If We Were Villains has a way of making the horrifics acts of rivals and the blurry line of morals poetic. At first glance I didn’t think I’d enjoy this book as much as I did, especially with the amount of times it quoted Shakespeare. However, after diving into this dark academic […]

Rainbow Days to celebrate LGBT community

Next week marks the beginning of “Rainbow Days 2014,” a week of events put on by the LGBT Resource center at the University.

The Lesbian, Gay, Transgender and Bisexual community, as well as their allies, can enjoy a week of different activities and events that are designed to spread awareness of the LGBT community at the University.

Assistant Director for LGBT programs Tobias Spears is enthusiastic and excited about the upcoming events.

“Rainbow Days is great because it makes students see that people of the LGBT [community] are everywhere,” Spears said. “It gives them an awareness and a consciousness of the diversity that is not only on campus but everywhere.”

While the week’s events are specifically created for those within the LGBT community, friends, supporters and allies are welcome to attend as well.

Each day, a different event that explores some part of life for the LGBT community will be featured. These events will range from general meeting, to performances featuring the College of Musical Arts to a drag show.

“I’m really excited for the kickoff of the Safe Zone Training at the Firelands campus,” Spears said. “The Mas-Queer-ade prom should be really fun too. It’ll give people who didn’t get to have a prom the opportunity for them to have one they feel comfortable at.

In addition to the LGBT resource center, the College of Musical Arts and the Women’s Center were also very involved in the creation of Rainbow Days.

Both Wednesday and Thursday will feature events put on by “Women Who Love Women,” while the College of Musical Arts will host a performance by Simon De Voil at 7 p.m. on Monday evening as well as an art show.

“I’m really excited for the art show because we’ve never had one before,” said junior Luke Grabski, president of VISION, an LGBT student organization. “The show will feature art by queer people or about queer people, anything that breaks the mold.”

VISION member Victoria Johnson seemed most excited about the Queer Prom.

“I think it’s so cool that even though this is labeled as a queer event, a lot of non-queer people are going,” Johnson said. “I’m glad people can go and be comfortable in that environment even if they aren’t in the LGBT community.”

For more information on next week’s events contact the LGBT Resource center located in 318B Math Sciences Building.
