|Members of Alliance|
I never thought this would happen, but my alma mater is moving forward in a great way. The MSU President stated his support of a LGBT Resource Center at the university.
President Randy Dunn announced Wednesday an LGBT Resource Center is a University priority, but acquiring funds to provide it could prove challenging.President Dunn kept it real with the audience about raising money for the center:
Dunn held a reception Wednesday night for Murray State’s Alliance and allies, or friends of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.
This reception was the second of its kind for Alliance and was held at Oakhurst, the president’s home.
“Right now we’re trying to figure out a way to get the LGBT Center. Right now money is the biggest concern. Challenging times are ahead for the University.”I hope former alums reach out and help them. Murray State was a struggle, but with the love and support from the LGBT community, I came out and had a successful experience. I also served as co-chair of Alliance, so to see how far they have come does my heart some good.
I'm so proud of the students, staff and faculty that supports the LGBT student community at Murray State.
You guys are awesome!
