I also recognize and thank the members of our LGBTQA community here at BU – their engagement is equally as important as we aim to become a more diverse, inclusive, supportive, and welcoming community for all. While so many of our activities and events have become virtual due to the COVID-19 virus and our sense of “community” has seemingly been altered of late, we must not lose sight of the importance of community and the richness of diversity that lies within the BU Family.
As we shape the future, let us also celebrate LGBT History this month – and celebrate the achievements of those who have influenced and shaped this important history. For those interested in learning more, check out our LGBTQA resources on campus. I am looking forward to BU’s 13th annual Mid-Atlantic LGBTQA Conference next month (Nov. 7-8). It will be held virtually and free of charge.
