posted on October 11, 2022

Alejandra Molina of Religion News Service reports that students at religious universities and high schools around the country are staging a walkout on Tuesday to protest LGBTQ discrimination by religious schools. The protest, Strike Out Queer-Phobia, is being organized by the nonprofit Religious Exemptions Accountability Project and a Brigham Young University student group called the Black Menaces. Veronica Bonifacio Penales, a queer student at Baylor University, said, “We shouldn’t have to compromise where we go because they don’t want to accept who we are. Baylor has taught me what I don’t want my religion to be.”
