Straight for Equality, a national initiative to empower straight people to support and advocate for LGBT equality, will launch in Springfield at a special event at 5:30 pm, Nov. 1, at Drury University’s Findlay Student Center.
Dr. Teresa Hornsby, co-chair of the Religion and Philosophy Department at Drury University, will deliver a keynote address, “Who Locked the Door? Paul and the Keys to the Kingdom,” followed by three break-out panels to discuss faith, healthcare and workplace issues of importance to LGBT persons.
This event is co-sponsored by the Center for Diversity and Reconciliation and PFLAG-Springfield with support from Spectrum; Lambda, a group of LGBT and ally faculty and staff at MSU; and Drury Allies.
This event is free and open to the public.
