Texas Christian University Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender !QStudents Rally!
"Due to the recent news media coverage regarding the DiversCityQ Living Learning Community, opening in the Fall at TCU, there is a need to show support for LGBT students, not just at TCU but nationwide. As expected, there has been a lot of negative comments regarding LGBT support at TCU from Christian individuals, in addition to some LGBT students, seeing this move as segregation. I know during lunch on a Friday, but if you can, please come out & show your support to the community so those that may not be out, can know that there is a support system. ".

"'Come out' as an ally and supporter!"
Host: Iris Reaction
Start Time: Friday, April 17 at 11:45am
End Time: Friday, April 17 at 12:30pm

Rally Iris Reaction
Join us for a march across campus in an effort to publicly show support for the LGBTQ community and the efforts to establish a resource center.
The march will be silent, and we'll walk from the Bass Building to Sadler, where we'll place irises on the steps to symbolize the TCU administration working with us eye-to-eye on this issue. Then we'll make our way to the University Commons where we'll place rainbow flags in the ground to 'claim our stake.'
So bring your rainbow flags and your pride and join us in an effort to promote awareness, inclusiveness, and support.
