LGBTQ Center Speakers Bureau Content Package
We are featuring two LGBTQ students that are actively working to make Purdue a more inclusive campus for all. These students serve as a great example of the variety of ways that Boilermakers can get involved in supporting and celebrating the LGBTQ community at Purdue.
This story can be used to highlight the resources and opportunities Purdue offers for students, especially those that identify as LGBTQ+ or allies of LGBTQ+ people. Although originally crafted to celebrate Pride Month, this story can be shared anytime throughout the year to show that Purdue is an inclusive campus for all.
