[Ed. – As the alphabet soup gains letters, the movement grows ever more certifiable. Incidentally, which special class to transvestites belong to? There’s no letter in the acronym for them.]
Rutgers University is hosting an entire “LGBTQIA Welcome Week” for gay and transgender students during the first week of classes.
The LGBTQIA Welcome Week will host numerous events, including a LGBTQIA Fall Reception featuring a performance by Big Freedia—a self-described “gay male” drag queen who uses she/her pronouns—and a Social Justice Open Mic Night, which invites students to sing, rap, and do spoken word performances around the theme of “social justice.”
Gay and queer students are also invited to a “Block Party,” where they’ll enjoy free food, refreshments, and performances from the school’s Asian American Cultural Center and the Center for Latino Arts.
The school will also host a brunch event for LGBTQIA international students, where they’ll help administrators “brainstorm more globally themed programs,” and the week will conclude with a “Big Queer Game Knight,” where students can play “life-size games” and fraternize with classmates.
