He said, “We wanted to bring it to Oxford because there was a need for it, there were some conversations about marriage equality and being prepared [for the changes in the community] that were coming. We felt it would be beneficial to all who were interested.”
The local community has been incredibly welcoming, reports The Miami Student, and that's great...because the chapter has big plans! Among them? To create partnerships with local businesses, and to start a program called "Reading Rainbow" in local public schools, which would help offer a students more diverse literature in their school libraries, including books that are inclusive of LGBTQ subject matter.
Revalee is excited and ready for the challenges ahead. “We wanted to be ready to have those conversations with our community and to act as an advocate for our community. We want to educate people and inform them that there are LGBTQ people in the Oxford community and that we were here to provide information.”
