Alpha Delta Chapter Joins in on ‘Big Gay Barbecue’

April 25, 2012

The brothers of Alpha Delta Chapter made their presence known at San Diego State University’s second biannual ‘Big Gay Barbecue’ event, aimed to promote awareness, equality, and resources to the local LGBT communities.

Several booths offered their resources to the event’s attendees. San Diego Pride, Safe Zones and the queer-friendly Greek houses Gamma Rho Lambda and Delta Lambda Phi tabled in order to reach out to students.

Safe Zones at SDSU works to ensure a campus atmosphere that is welcoming, informative and safe for all lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, queer, intersex and allies. The organization provided numerous pamphlets at the event.

“I hope people approach the booths,” University of California San Diego communications sophomore Anderson Yu said. “I go to UCSD and we don’t have something like this so I think it’s very important to have an LGBT campus presence.”

The barbecue’s theme “We are the 10 percent” is a play on the Occupy movement and it is based on the research that claims 10 percent of people are gay or lesbian, according to Butler.
