CHARLOTTE, NC, April 7, 2009 –Today Campus Pride officially launched its national blog, Campus Q&A (http://www.CampusPrideBlog.org). The blog is written and moderated by a team of college student leaders from across the country who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) and ally. As the name Campus Q&A implies, the blog provides a forum to ask questions and get answers.
The only blog of its kind for and by college student leaders, Campus Pride operates the blog through its Campus Q Team. The team consists of nearly a dozen LGBT and ally student leaders chosen from across the country, who serve as active, visible resource persons in variousregions. Any student who is part of the Campus Q Team may be a featured blogger.
“Campus Pride views the Campus Q&A blog as a platform for college activists as well as an organizing tool for LGBT and ally student leaders at colleges and universities. The blog sheds light on important issues to young adults and allows their voice to be heard in a prominent manner in national discourse,” said Christopher Bylone, Campus Q Team Coordinator for Campus Pride. “This blog will be the hub for what’s happening queer on and around college campuses.”
