Show your support for campus community members who identify within lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, intersex and asexual (LGBTQIA+) communities at Syracuse University and SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry by signing the 2022-23 Queer and Trans Solidarity List.
The LGBTQ Resource Center will be collecting names throughout the 2022-23 academic year for online publication; those who would like to have their name included in the print version of the list in the Daily Orange must submit their name by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 5.
By signing, you are agreeing for your name to appear in print and online as a signatory to the following statement:
“We pledge to support those who identify within lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, intersex and asexual (LGBTQIA+) communities at Syracuse University and SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF). We believe that coming out can be an empowering and rewarding process. We also acknowledge that not everyone has the desire or ability to come out; for some, coming out can pose a threat to emotional and even physical safety. But we believe that you do not have to come out to find support and community. We acknowledge that your experiences are real and valid, and we list our names here to remind you of that community. We will listen to you, work with you, advocate for you, and welcome you. We are committed to working against queer and trans antagonism that marginalizes LGBTQIA+ people and their many intersecting identities; we actively strive to build campuses that celebrate queer and trans identities and communities. The names listed here demonstrate the breadth of solidarity across Syracuse University and SUNY-ESF. We believe that queer and trans existence is beautiful!”
