Setting up for the gay pride march on April 30, LGBTQ Resource Center Coordinator Struby Struble passed out numerous homemade banners in preparation for the second to last Gay Pride Month event.
Struble has been directing and coordinating events for the group for two and a half years. She has coordinated 36 events this month with the final one, Lavendar Graduation, taking place Wednesday May 14.
While organizing the troops, Struble appeared stressed but maintained her enthusiasm throughout the preparation for the march. She is excited about the success each event has produced this month, especially the Identity Lunches, which took place April 3.
The lunches were a new addition to the agenda this year and generated a huge turnout. At the lunches, attendees learned about specific identities and issues within the LGBTQ community.
Once every had a sign and some took their seats on the golf cart, the group began its march throughout campus while cheering “MIZ-ZOU,” among others.
