Day of Silence is a day dedicated to bringing awareness to the bullying of LGBTQ+ students. Students take a vow of silence to represent the effects of harassment towards the LGBTQ+ community. This year, Day of Silence took place on April 21. In honor of Day of Silence, I wanted to highlight one of the largest LGBTQ+ organizations on campus, Bobcat PRIDE.

Bobcat PRIDE stands for People Respecting Individuality, Diversity, and Equality. This organization supports LGBTQ+ students at Texas State by offering mentorship and service. Organizations like Bobcat PRIDE are essential for college campuses because they provide a safe place for LGBTQ+ students to meet other students like them. With events like Day of Silence, members of these organizations can band together to support one another and take part in these events.

I attended one of Bobcat PRIDE’s meetings so that I could meet some of the members of the group and talk with them about Day of Silence. It was such a great experience to meet members such as Lauren Anderson, Levi Leal, and Maddie Duplechin. We got to chat a little before the meeting and they agreed to pose for some photos with the Pride flag for this gallery. Bobcat PRIDE provides them with a close group of people in which they can confide in. This is so important for all college students, especially the LGBTQ+ students, because it’s essential to have a support system if faced with bullying or harassment.

And it’s not just any Wendy’s or McDonald’s -- it’s California’s […]
