Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Ally. Terms I hope everyone understands, Ohio University is known for its liberal concepts and acceptance of all people. So, it’s natural that the LGBT scene is hopping, and this week is Pride Week.
I had hoped to blog about the Casa dance I went to on Saturday, a monthly event sponsored by one of the LGBT groups, Open Doors.
Despite having gone here since fall of 2009 I’ve never gone to one of these dances despite protest from my friends. Went to this past one, and somewhere between the drunken groping and the puke of someone else on my shoulder I realized it might be better to pick a different topic.
Tonight I attended a panel discussion on transsexual people and how to better educate yourself regarding those. I don’t mean to tread on any toes or disrespect any beliefs, but I think it’s imperative to be kind to everyone and try to understand everyone’s’ viewpoints. We were told about Gender Neutral Housing a program that’s going up next year and was spearheaded by a good friend of mine.
So yeah, no new information on my end, but it was a good night and I am very tired, see you tomorrow morning.
