On Friday, members of the Murray State Alliance performed live homosexual acts on campus in the Free Speech Zone. Many students were shocked, but not necessarily as the name the event implies. Students performed acts such as reading, studying and hanging out to raise awareness about the lifestyle of gay members of the Murray State campus.
…Anthony Jones, senior from Union City, Tenn., and Murray State Alliance president, said he was happy with how Friday’s event turned out. “We had a fairly good amount of people that stopped and talked with us for a while,” Jones said. Jones said he thinks students came away with a very important message. “Gay people are just as ordinary as anyone else out there,” Jones said. “Gay and lesbian folk do the same thing as anyone else and I think (the event) illustrated that in a very clear way.”
Murray State Alliance plans on holding more Live Homosexual Acts next year.
