If this discussion is needed anywhere, it is in the black church and at HBCU. Unfortunately, the church has too many closeted gay men and that mentality is a black colleges, too.

It's about damn time. and I totally agree churches and colleges have been far too absent for far too long. When is Morehouse doing it?

"The (dress) code was endorsed by the campus' sole gay student group."

It sure was!! And that is very telling in just how progressive some of the homosexual students on Morehouse's campus are in terms of THEIR OWN rights. Spelman continues to be in the lead when it comes to moving into the modern era and I'm glad it is.

“In addition to Spelman, the other participating colleges included Bennett College of Women, Clark Atlanta University, Howard University, Morehouse College, Morgan State University, North Carolina Central University, Philander Smith College, and Southern University.”

There sure are some colleges missing from that list.

Wouldn't be surprised if it had anything to do with being perceived as effeminate, which seems to still have negative connotations for many, including gay men of color.

When Guy-Sheftall gives as one of the reasons black historical colleges and universities have been slow to discuss gay issues that "Some schools were founded with religious affiliation," her comment supports the position that religions, the religious leaders who are responsible for the lies and distortions about gay people, and the followers who have been "infected" by these lies and distortions are the fundamental sources of homophobia.

Where may we find additional information/website on this specific initiative?
