Letter to the Editor

To the editor:
For The Bucknellian to compare lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students with members of a fraternity or sorority is misguided. For The Bucknellian to compare Fran’s House (one small building housing just over 10 students and in existence for one academic year) with more than 20 fraternities and sororities (part of campus since 1855 and with membership including 50 percent of sophomores, juniors and seniors) is unfair. To conflate Fran’s House and FLAG&BT, as The Bucknellian appears to do in this editorial, is misleading. If you would like to discuss issues related to coming out, gender identity or other LGBT topics, please consider contacting the Office of LGBT Awareness.
