Student Speaks Out in Favor of Improved Protection for LGBTQ Rattlers

February 21, 2012

Hats off to FAMU student Ciara Taylor for recording this video eloquently speaking in favor of better protection for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer members of the FAMU community.

Ciara is urging her classmates to vote in favor of a referendum on the ballot in student elections Tuesday to add language protecting the LGBTQ community under FAMU’s non-discrimination policies. (This has been a hot topic on campus since the tragic death of Robert Champion, who was gay.) Ciara has also urged university-level trustees to take action on this issue.

Good luck, Ciara! You’re absolutely right. This group deserves protection at FAMU as much as any other.

[UPDATE: The ballot measure passed! Congrats to Ciara and the other students who supported this effort to stick up for one another!]
