LVC Hosts Freedom Week March 11-16
03.07.13 |
Lebanon Valley College student organization Freedom Rings will sponsor Freedom Week on campus from March 11-16. The week is filled with activities that will promote lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) awareness.

On Monday, colored ribbons and sidewalk chalk will color the campus in rainbow colors to signify the start of Freedom Week. The dining hall will feature GBLT's, BLTs on rainbow bread.

On Tuesday, Freedom Week will draw attention to suicide among the LGBT community. Outlines of bodies and statistics will be written on sidewalks throughout the campus.

On Thursday, a color walk simulation will occur; students are encouraged to buy a white t-shirt and stop at stations throughout campus to have their shirt sponge-painted with rainbow colors. Thursday also serves as a NOH8 campaign day; NOH8 is a photographic silent protest in response to the passage of Proposition 8 in California, amending the state Constitution to ban same-sex marriage. LVC students will wear tape over their mouths and NOH8 written on their cheeks to mimic the national campaign. A poetry slam is scheduled for that evening.

Friday will serve as a day of happiness. Students will wear smiley face stickers on their cheeks. A drag show is planned that evening as a preface to the midnight showing of "Rocky Horror Picture Show" at the Allen Theatre, Annville.

Freedom Rings alumni are invited to a luncheon with current members on Saturday, March 16.

Erin Davies (pictured, at right) will speak about her experience as a hate crime victim in a presentation on March 21 at 11 a.m. in Leedy Theater. After her VW bug was vandalized with the word "fag," she toured the United States with her car to raise awareness of hate crimes. Her bug will be on display on campus and Davies will answer questions from attendees at that time. Davies' presentation is sponsored by Freedom Rings and the Office of Multicultural Affairs.

Freedom Rings is a student organization committed to fostering understanding about issues affecting the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender individual. Membership is open to all people committed to this mission, including heterosexual allies.
