“Religion-based bigotry is careless and life-threatening,” said Shane Windmeyer, Executive Director of Campus Pride. “LGBTQ young people face high rates of harassment and violence, especially our trans youth and LGBTQ youth of color. The schools on this list openly discriminate against LGBTQ youth and many of these schools have requested or received Title IX exemptions for no other purpose than to discriminate, expel and ban LGBTQ youth from campus. It is shameful and wrong.”
Campus Pride & Soulforce have partnered to support LGBTQ and ally communities at religious campuses with anti-LGBTQ policies, programs and practices. This also includes those campuses that have applied for, or received Title IX exemptions to discriminate openly against LGBTQ youth.
