F*ck Yeah LGBT

Bringing you the news and stories of the community

My university held its 3rd annual “Gay? Fine by me” parade this past weekend. I’m the one holding the sign “We are the Aggies, the Aggies are we.” - a line from our Alma Mater. Texas A&M is deeply rooted in many many traditions (Reveille our mascot, the Century Tree, the Aggie Ring, “Whoop!” - the list is endless) and we have 6 core values including “Respect.” Hate is not an Aggie Value, but it sure feels like tradition sometimes. With 50,000 students on campus, most of whom are straight Christians, the LGBT community often gets pushed aside. Spit on. We recently fought a bill that would allow people to opt out of funding the GLBT Resource Center - one of the only safe spaces we have on campus. The bill was evenutally vetoed, but the sting of “we don’t want you here” still stays. This march was a truly memorable event for me. It was our way of saying “We’re here, we’re queer, and we are a part of the Aggie Family and you cannot deny us.”
