BGSU-- "It Gets Better!"

Last Wednesday found the campus of Bowling Green State University blanketed in purple.  Pourquoi?  To demonstrate visual and emotional solidarity, supportive of the LGBT community.

Emotion surged as Cherno Biko spoke of his own struggles with suicide, hoping to lessen the stigma and give it a face.  He explained “just because BG has not lost a member of the community, nothing says that it won’t happen to us.”

The bittersweet event ended with an uplifting bang and left everyone feeling things really could get better.
