Support LGBT Students at Tech

April 7, 2011 § 1 Comment

Fellow Yellow Jacket,

“It’s okay to be gay at Georgia Tech. We, the undersigned, support our lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender friends and colleagues at Georgia Tech.”

This statement, followed by hundreds of signatures, appeared in the Technique in 1996, 2002, and 2005. Signatures were gathered from students, faculty, staff, and alumni from the Tech community, all of whom were supportive of the acceptance of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) yellow jackets.

Join us as we once again gather signatures for this effort.

To Participate:

1. Visit: http://afa.pride.gatech.edu/
2. Login: Click ‘Students, Faculty, and Staff’ and use your GT login info to sign in.
3. Sign: Check your name; click ‘Submit’ and you’re done!

Act fast! This link will close on Wednesday, April 15th at 11:59 p.m.

Your name and willingness to support the LGBT community will be published in the final Technique of this semester, alongside many, many other names. You can participate as a straight ally (someone who is accepting and supportive of the LGBT community) or as a member of the LGBT community yourself.

Help us maximize the effect of this effort by forwarding this email to other members of the Georgia Tech community: organizational lists, friends, co-workers, alumni, fraternity brothers, sorority sisters, and any other member of the Tech community that might want to participate.

Thank you for your time and energy, as we work together to make Georgia Tech an even better place.

Yours in Progress and Service,
The Acceptance For All Team

P.S. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email gatech.afa@gmail.com
