Because of tan lines.
So we just told them to shut up and sit down.
Ethnically disqualified from ever receiving free money minority scholarships to Sewanee.
Somebody’s getting the message.

Subject: /Classifieds/ Rainbow Buttons for the Sewanee Conference on Human Equality
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
In conjunction with the Sewanee Conference on Human Equality (March 22-25, 2010), Mountain Lambda and the Office of Multicultural Affairs are sponsoring buttons as a way to show support. Each button displays the rainbow flag with the letters “EQB.” They are simple way to express the united support that the Sewanee community holds for each person regardless of race, sex, creed, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, or any other difference that makes each one of us unique.
The buttons are completely free and will be available at lunch on Monday, March 22. They will also be available at each event during the conference. Wear them on your gown, wear them on your lapel, wear them on your hat, wear them where ever you want! Wear them to show your support for human equality!

Ecce quam bonum et quam iucundum habitare fratres in unum.
Hard to argue with the new name “Sewanee: The National Gay Episcopal University” that appears in Virtueonline’s news coverage of the Episcopal Church and its Episcopal University here in Sewanee.
For the third year in a row, we’ve got a full Lesbian, Gay, Transgendered, Bisexual sodom festival here on the Mountain. Today through Thursday will be a good time to pack up the kids and flee our local Sewanee Gomorrah for safer havens in the valley.
Did the greedy fundraisers in the Development Office send invitations to the conservative Christian alumni and donors? Did the Admissions Office send invitations to all prospectives, including the heteronormatives who confessed on their Sewanee applications that the Bible is the most influential book in their lives?
Annual Conference on Human Equality March 22-25
Sewanee’s third annual Conference on Human Equality will be held March 22–25, with a variety of events scheduled across campus and open to the public.
The conference opens on Monday, March 22, with a screening of “For the Bible Tells Me So,” at 7:30 p.m. in Carnegie Hall room 306. This award-winning documentary is about the intersection of religion and homosexuality in the U.S.
On Tuesday, March 23, Daniel Karslake, the filmmaker of “For the Bible Tells Me So,” will give the conference’s keynote presentation at 7 p.m. in the Bishop’s Common Hearth Room, followed by a light reception.
On Wednesday, March 24, Nashville Cares Health Outreach will be providing free HIV screenings from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., with the location to be announced. There will also be a panel discussion on “LGBT Life in the South” at 4 p.m. in the Women’s Center living room.
On Thursday, March 25, musician Chaz Hill will perform at 6:30 p.m. in St. Luke’s Chapel. The closing event of the conference will be an alter ego costume party held at 8 p.m. in the Mary Sue Cushman Room of the Women’s Center.
The conference is sponsored by the Gay-Straight Alliance, the Peace Coalition, Sewanee AIDS Awareness and the Women’s Center.
We have seven fewer than Monteagle, five fewer Tracy City, two fewer than Cowan, twenty-two fewer than Winchester, eight fewer than Decherd, thirteen fewer than Estill Springs.
“Rabot in Sewanee” posted a list of interesting links full of Sewanee news in the comments section of the Pearigen interview. We haven’t read them all, but most appear to be from an Orthodox Anglican blog. We know from experience that “Anglican” is a bad word with the Sewanee Episcopalians these days. Please send us news.
