Before: Semesters kicked off with Rainbow Welcome and the Speed-Friending event. Over the summer, PSU is holding meetings every Thursday at 6 p.m. at the LGBTQ+ resource center, which is located in the Oglesby Union, RM A211.


Help for a certain future is here, Florida State University’s Pride Student Union takes a lead to provide social-oriented services and programs to tend to the needs of special cases. PSU puts on events that cater towards providing a theater for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, asexual, intersex and questioning student to interact regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. According to sources, PSU meetings involve discussing a variety of topics, which are held weekly–called the Queer and Trans People of Color (QTPOC).


By having this particular event geared solely towards ‘Blacks’ isn’t on the front page. In relation, the ‘Black’ community has not necessarily responded to the finger pointing that relates to mental maturity and sexual preference. However, this event and project is specifically geared towards the safety and exposure to colored people (students) having compromised lifestyle preferences.


Frankly. this type of movement is necessary to Florida State University, in relation to Houston’s Heights project. Moreover, surely by sharing this idea of involvement and togetherness, provides an outlet for certain groups, as well as individuals. Hopefully, this type of endeavor can go smoothly. Practically, this type of event encourages to create a safe space for the queer and trans people of color within the Tallahassee area. However, there are open floor sessions to speak about often times intersections of race, gender, sexuality, ability, etc., mentions Pride Secretary, Lucas Gauna.
