What are these people trying to accom
plish? Are they trying to prevent CGLA
from having these dances? Or are they
trying to erase all trace of homosexuality
from campus?
Sorry, guys, but we're still gay with
out the posters and the banner, and we'll
continue to have our dances (successful
ones at that) without them, too.
But the issue is much larger than just
a sheet, some paint, and a clothesline.
Anti-gay attitudes and anti-gay violence
are very real on this campus and elsewhere
in this country. Ask our member who's
being harrassed in his dorm daily; ask our
member who was fired from her job for
being a lesbian; ask our members who spent
about thirty hours last semester fighting
the Campus Governing Council for a mere
nine hundred dollars in student fees.

I would like to think that there are
people out there who really do support
human rights for all people everywhere.
Now is the time to say that enough is
enough and end all this hatred! About
sixty dollars of student fees were spent
on three banners. The CGC is certainly
not going to replace them, either. If
you, gay or straight, or anywhere in
between, want to do something, come by
CGLA office and join. Your two dollar
dues are not even as important as your
support.
