    Posted: 08/21/2012 8:37 am

    Stanford University, Minnesota’s Carleton College and Georgia’s Emory University may all be vastly different institutions in terms of size of their student body and variety of degree programs offered. Yet all three have been named to Campus Pride’s list of the top 25 most LGBT-friendly colleges and universities in the U.S.

    Onlookers line the sidewalks at the Pride Parade, part of the Stonewall Columbus Pride Festival, June 22 on High Street. OSU was recently named one of the top 25 LGBT-friendly US colleges. Though Ohio State was recently named one of the top 25 Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender-friendly colleges and universities of 2013, some at OSU feel there is still room for improvement.

    This calls to mind how promoting ‘gay’ rights benefits our country and the world in general. If sexuality and gender issues cause less stress for queer students, they can, all else being equal, better focus on their academic and extracurricular activities.

    My guess is governments and businesses are increasingly seeing how heterosexism detracts from human resource development. Consider how much talent the military lost during Don’t Ask Don’t Tell in fields such as linguistics.

    Similarly sexism, racism, and classism and other prejudices such as those against folk who are blind, deaf, or wheelchair-bound, detract from our nation’s and the world’s development of its human capital.

    Ohio State Pride Night aims to raise awareness, advocacy for LGBT Community
    January 12, 2014
    Taylor Cameron

    “You can play,” was the message some fans sported on their shirts during the Ohio State men’s hockey team’s second annual Pride Night.

    Executive Director of the You Can Play Project and former NFL player, Wade Davis, spoke Saturday at the Schottenstein Center before the Ohio State men’s hockey team (11-6-1, 1-2-1) took on Michigan State (6-10-3, 0-2-2).

    You Can Play is an organization that seeks to bring equality, respect and safety to all athletes regardless of their sexual orientation. Before the game, which ended in a 1-1 tie with Michigan State winning the shootout, Davis spoke about the challenges he faced as a gay athlete.
