The State of Duke Divinity School According to LGBTQIA+ Students

Protest is not meant to be non-confrontational. In higher education, students continue to lead the way in pushing institutions to make their actions consistent with their words when it comes to inclusion and equity.

I’m sharing this recorded action by LGBTQIA+ students at Duke Divinity School.

This is the State of the School address brought to you by LGBTQIA+ Duke Divinity students and allies. We’re tired of making the Divinity School’s image look good, while no one has cut us a check for advertisement. We’re tired of all of the marginalized identities publicized on the websites but minimized in the school hallways.”

A transcript of the address, as well as follow-up posts from the group’s action can be found on their site, Making The House of Love.
