National Coming Out Day

“Why Can’t You Just Be Normal”

In honor of national coming out day. Only creative fun post today!!! This is a picture from a campaign I worked on during school. There had been hate crimes on campus against gay men. In support of a campaign for increased campus resources and safety on campus, we held a rally called “Stop the Hate.”

At first this banner was only black letters saying “Why Can’t You Just Be Normal.” We then made paint filled balloons and encouraged campaign supporters to throw them at the banner. IT WAS GREAT and tons of fun! The campaign was successful in achieving 2 full time administrator position to run the first LGBTQ center on campus.
