Morehouse Celebrates Gay Pride in Silence

You won't find this week's activities advertised on the school calendar.

It's Gay Pride Week at Morehouse College, but it seems school officials aren't ready for the festivities to be out and in the open. Apparently, there's no information about the celebration -- a first for the historically black all-male institution -- anywhere on campus or on the college's Website.

Given the taboos and often-caustic perspectives towards LGBT brothers and sisters on HBCU campuses, I find it disgraceful and offensive that the ‘House wouldn’t acknowledge what could be a groundbreaking forum for discussion on improving attitudes and perspectives among the LGBT and non-LGBT populations.
