This did not happen right?!

This did in fact happen. And Marc Lamont Hill came right back, without skipping a beat, with a wide grin, “And you look like a cocaine user!”

Woooooowww…. this cannot be life

Anonymous asked: Funny how he takes all the credit when he didn't really do all the work and wasn't his idea. Power trips.

No idea what you are talking about, doll, but this blog really is not the place to vent frustrations like these at people within Fordham or Rainbow or any other organization. If you have a problem with someone or a group of people, I advise you to talk to them directly, love.

The Queer Campaign

LGBTQ News: Queer at Fordham, Marriage Equality, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis by Thomas Welch

"The policy on the use of the word queer for programming in Lincoln Center clubs has reversed, meaning that student organizations are now able to use the word in their advertisements, names, missions and constitutions. While this is a celebrated and important step that was even noticed in prominent Catholic publications, the real victory comes from the fact that a small group of dedicated, goal-oriented students were able to change a bit of policy that they didn’t agree with. So props to Fordham for making that change successful!”

We are Queer. We are Here. And We Finally Did It!

**This message is brought to you by a collaboration between the executive boards of both Pride and Rainbow Alliances at Fordham University.

We are proud to announce the inclusion of the term “queer” in its programming. After a long period of dialogue with the Dean of Students and the Office of Student Leadership and Community Development, the word “queer” may now be used on both the Lincoln Center and Rose Hill campuses of Fordham University, like any other word, by ANY club—as long as it is not derogatory. This represents a culmination of efforts enacted by the Queer Campaign, the Queer Task Force, United Student Government, Students for Solidarity, Women’s Studies, Rainbow and Pride Alliances, and many other communities at large. We are deeply humbled by and grateful for all of the support we have gotten for this endeavor, and we hope to continue fostering dialogue to aid in creating men and women for and with others.

A Quote

Bullying builds character like nuclear waste creates superheroes. It’s a rare occurrence and often does much more damage than endowment.
