Hey everyone I’m wondering if you might help me today to send a message to a brand new LGBT organization at the University of Oklahoma – Tulsa.

Hey everyone I’m wondering if you might help me today to send a message to a brand new LGBT organization at the University of Oklahoma – Tulsa.

My friend and one of the founding editors of Velvetpark, Kent Martin, is now an administrator and a founding member of this new organization at OU. Kent emailed me earlier in the week letting me know that today is the very first meeting of “LGBT Association at OU-Tulsa,” its the very first queer campus organization, ever. So he asked if Velvetpark might like to cheer them on.

For all of us who live in big metropolises like New York, San Fransisco, or Chicago we forget how privileged we are being out. We have tons of resources and orgs to turn to for support, and we benefit from millions of cultural events our cities host nightly.

But its really all of you who are in places where basic rights and acceptance is still a huge struggle and having the courage to organize and be out is an incredible feat. I couldn’t help but quote Sarah Schulman again, because what she had to say still applies to our struggle now. Regular people can change the world!
