KGU Continues its Push for LGBT Awareness and Acceptance with 7th Annual KG Rainbow Week
Held for the seventh time this past May and timed to coincide with IDAHOT (The International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia), the goal of KG Rainbow Week is to celebrate diversity, deepen understanding of the issues facing sexual minorities, and foster an environment on campus where all members of the community can mutually accept each other for who they are, regardless of gender, age, sexuality, or religion, and are able to exhibit their talents to the fullest. This year, the guest speaker at the opening event was model and actress Kate Asakura.
During KG Rainbow Week, which has grown larger and larger each year, the university hosts LGBT-related book exhibits, movie screenings, fellowship gatherings, panel discussions, guest lectures and other events across all of its campuses.
