On Friday, April 21, campus will be a little quieter for the annual Day of Silence.
This event, started in Virginia in 1996, is meant to bring awareness to the words we speak (or don’t speak) and how they affect others, especially in the LGBT community.
It is primarily seen in schools and is a student-led, student-hosted activity, though it is sponsored and encouraged by GLSEN (pronounced glisten). This organization founded on the idea that the LGBT community should be treated with respect in their schools just like any other student, without the fear of bullying or harassment.
One of their goals is to empower students to positively change their school or campus environment. This event is an extension of that goal.
Lake Land College’s own club BGLADD encourages members to participate.
BGLADD will also be hosting their own LGBT panel during activity period on Wednesday, April 12.
