Every week, we collect anonymous entries sent in using the link on our sidebar and post them all on Monday. We post anything as long as it doesn't contain personal attacks or hate speech. Feel free to submit your thoughts and questions :)

Being back on campus is, like, totally great. The LGBT Center student staff (Michelle, Megan, Jack, Justin, and I) and Janie went on a retreat this weekend to discuss fall programming and responsibilities and such. As you can imagine, it was more or less (more) The Most Awesome Time. In addition to the standard events (Chocolate Fountain Social, Welcome Reception, Fab Fridays, The NC Parade, Coming Out Day, etc.) we've got a couple other things up our sleeve which are obviously going to be tons of fun and interesting and insightful and tons of fun. I'm in charge of Transgender Day of Remembrance this November, which I'm excited about. I'm looking to mix it up a bit this year and, you know, just make Duke the most PROGRESSIVE school ever.

The NC Parade (which Justin Harris is in charge of) and Coming Out Day (which Megan Weinand is organizing) are going to need a lot of help, so let them know if when you're free.

First-years move in tomorrow! Supercool. If we extrapolate the trend we've seen with incoming classes over the past four or so years, the Class of 2014 is 97% LGBT.


And by boat, he means HUGS.

You're a beautiful man. You're so talented; your soul runs deep. And you ain't hard on the eyes either. I'm glad I knew you.

Love,

PS-Come out, come out wherever you are and get happy!

  2. Yo. #1. Thanks a lot. This sort of feedback makes me (and I'm sure the other writers) feel all fuzzy inside. Thanks for reading, and thanks for signing up to write for us next semester :)

  3. #1. This is making me reflect a lot on the (re)start to the blog and what we were aiming for. We redefined goals and had a mission. I'm just really grateful I was able to be a part of it from the beginning, and I hope that if more folks feel comfy sharing their stories, that I can keep writing.

    And big props to Chris, and all the writers, for keeping this thing strong.
