Cal Poly students demonstrate to raise awareness for gay rights and same-sex marriage.
The Western Regional Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, Asexual, Ally College Conference will be hosted at Cal Poly for the first time in the event’s 20-year history.
Activities are designed to facilitate understanding of common LGBTQ and ally experiences, tackling, through group discussion, issues like terminology and homophobia.
Society looks at a person as a man or a woman, but in reality, there is a spectrum of genders, said Pride Center program assistant Bryn Smith.
Cal Poly’s Pride Center recently moved to the University Union in an effort to allow more students access to the facilities in a more central, familiar location. The center is now located in one big room, as opposed to the old location where two trailers were combined creating a barrier and limited space.
