From OSU-OKC SODA: On Friday, October 3rd at the OSU-OKC campus, we have the chance to meet and support those who are making history in the realm of marriage equality. Both Mary Bishop and Sharon Baldwin will be in room SC304 between 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM. This is only a few days before the Supreme Court goes into session Monday, October 6th and may possibly pick this case to make a ruling on. OSU-OKC Student Orientation Diversity Association (SODA/ also the GSA) welcomes the LGBTQA community and any interested individuals to its grounds to share in this important stepping stone to liberty for those who have been fighting hard for our rights. We invite everyone to share in the discussion for equality.

Set a date! Come join us on October 3, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. at the OSU-OKC campus!

LGBTQ YOUTH – SPEAK OUT ABOUT YOUR SCHOOL EXPERIENCES!

Help GLSEN (the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network) inform education policymakers and the public about what’s really going on in our nation’s schools by completing the 2013-National School Climate Survey, GLSEN’s eighth national survey about the experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer youth in school.

If you attended high school or middle school sometime during the last school year (2012-2013) and are at least 13 years old, tell us about your experiences in school. (If you did not complete the entire school year you can still participate in the survey.) The survey is completely anonymous.

This morning, Oklahoma City City Council voted on Councilor Ed Shadid’s resolution, 7 to 2, adding sexual orientation to the protected categories in the city’s non-discrimination policies for its public employees. As Brittany Novotny put it in her blog yesterday -The outcome of this vote is critical for the future of LGBT equality in Oklahoma!

Oklahoma City now protects anyone who might be discriminated against because of their sexual orientation in their hiring, promotion, and retention of public employees.

This is a huge step for equality in Oklahoma.
