LGBT characters finally 3-D

A recent GLAAD study found that there are more gay, lesbian and bisexual characters portrayed on television today than ever before, meaning eyes are finally opening in TV land. As a society, our entertainment has always been seen as a reflection of ourselves: accentuating our deepest dreams and biggest fears all in the name of relatability.

Asylum seekers face harassment

The UK Home Office has been accused of interrogating LGBT asylum seekers to prove their sexuality with humiliating questions regarding their sex lives in order to gain entrance to the UK. Despite the Home Office Committee being advised to determine an individual’s sexual orientation as sensitively as possible and are forbidden to ask intrusive or inappropriate questions, the committee continued... 

Sam should be judged on talent

When NBA center Jason Collins openly came out as gay in April 2013, it was only a matter of time until more professional athletes would follow his example. Michael Sam, defensive lineman for the Missouri Tigers, came out in a recent interview with the New York Times. If he is picked during the draft, he will become the first openly gay player in the NFL. With the NFL combines and draft slowly approaching,... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I just wanted to thank the Campus Times, especially Christian Orozco, for the article last Friday (“Kennan fights for justice,” Oct. 11). I only hope that some people will read it and become involved in one or more of the many causes we need to fight for right now: Veteran’s benefits, LGBT rights, women’s rights, voting rights, raising the minimum wage, supporting organizations...

Now in 2013 Americans...

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, As a 51-year activist in the civil rights movement, I am becoming frustrated at seeing people in this country repeat the same mistakes of the past. In the 1960s I regularly heard “It’s against the Bible” when I was confronted for the “sin” of attempting to gain equal rights for African-Americans. Leaders of several churches would quote the Bible to me, explaining that not...
