It Gets Better at Unity House

This evening, Stephen and I hosted two overlapping meetings: the first for the Diversity and Equality Club, and the second for a group of folks putting together a video here for the It Gets Better project, which was "created to show young LGBT people the levels of happiness, potential and positivity their lives will reach -- if they can just get through their teen years."

The D & E Club worked on the details of their ambitious agenda for the next few weeks: presentations at this Saturday's Open House event and our April 22nd Earth Day celebration, as well as activism for this year's Day of Silence on April 20th  -- the largest student-led day of action in America. Stephen and Keeper helped by closely overseeing the proceedings. 

The tone of both meetings was warm and positive -- with a little humor, cheese and crackers thrown in. We had enough serious focus, though -- as you can see from this photo of Katie, Jessie, and Mark -- to make important decisions and set dates for filming our own It Gets Better video here on campus.

Look for a campus wide email soon, inviting you to be a part of the filming on April 9 and April 13.  And maybe we'll send another message, inviting you to participate in a study to determine whether or not Stephen and Keeper are actually twins.
