Call for Names: Queer & Trans Solidarity List

In honor of Coming Out Month, the LGBT Resource Center is releasing a Queer & Trans Solidarity List, which will be published in the Daily Orange on Wednesday, October 11th.

To submit your name for inclusion, please email lgbt@syr.edu by5 PM on Friday, October 6th. In the body of the email, please include your name as you would like it to appear in the publication.

“We pledge to support those who identify within lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, intersex, and asexual (LGBTQIA+) communities at SU/ESF. We believe that coming out can be an empowering and rewarding process. We also acknowledge that not everyone has the ability to come out; for some, coming out can pose a threat to emotional and even physical safety. But we believe that you do not have to come out to find support. We acknowledge that your experiences are real and valid, and we list our names here as resources. We will listen to you, work with you, advocate for you, and welcome you. We are committed to dismantling the queer- and transphobia that marginalizes LGBTQIA+ people; we actively strive to build campuses that celebrate LGBTQIA+ identities and communities. The names listed here demonstrate the breadth of solidarity across SU/ESF. We believe that queer and trans existence is beautiful!”

We look forward to receiving your submissions.
