Title

Announcement "Awareness Week events set to run"

Description

This Collegian announcement shows details for the 1993 Lambda Coalition sponsored Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual Awareness week, which is an attempt to educate students about what homosexuality is, due to the lack of awareness of LGBTQ individuals at the University of Richmond. There will be a screening of a film, information tables, a panel discussion and a rally on the Boatwright Lawn. The Campaign for Military Service, a group of LGBTQ+ military veterans will also rally to raise awareness about veterans who are banned from service because of their sexual orientation. The panel discussion will be centered around the question, "What to do when a friend or relative comes out to you?" The film that will be shown is "Torch Song Trilogy" a film about a gay man. In preparation to raise awareness about the events, the Lambda Coalition has hung "pink triangles with the number 350 inside of them all over campus." This number is intended to represent the ten percent of the student body estimated to belong to the LGBTQ+ community.
