Jennifer Carrasco, Student, Florida International University
"Last night during Straight Answers to Gay Questions-- I looked around and was overcome with the implications of what was happening in that room, a real dialogue about queer issues; it really felt like an intimate group of people, sharing, listening and learning. I don't think there is a way to say thank you for bringing that kind of experience to a campus like ours, but thank you, thank you, thank you!"
Alison Folsom, Co-President, Feminists Reinventing Equality Everywhere, New Mexico State University
“Their energy and charisma were simply infectious.”
Kerry John Poynter, Assistant Director, Office of Multicultural Affairs, Columbia University
“As an ally, I’ve felt pressured to know the answers, rather than ask the questions. This program was an excellent forum for everyone to ask questions anonymously. Dorian and Marshall were so funny that everyone felt quite at ease with an often awkward topic. You rock!”
Katie Rice, student, Hendrix College
“This was a great way to open dialogue about bi issues and interests on a campus that covers the G, L, and T but has trouble remembering the “B.”

Jenn Shaller, President, OSAPE, Organization of Students Actively Pursuing Equality, Stetson University
"Thank you for the two programs that you brought to Vincennes University this week. As you know we had packed houses for both programs, which was outstanding.

Cynthia Beals, Director of Student Activities, Vincennes University

“This program was completely eye-opening and went above and beyond my expectations!

They left it open-ended enough that I, a sort of minority within a minority, felt comfortable sharing my story.”
Rachel Moultan, student, Wheaton College
"The program was informative, lively, and interesting, honored all backgrounds, and was helpful -- but the best thing was that the speaker was such a great listener."
