I think that when people at Wheelock talk about diversity, they are simply discussing racial diversity. While it is true that with recent events such as Ferguson, racial injustice has been at the forefront of the national headlines. However, one aspect of identity that is typically not a part of diversirty conversations on our campus is that of sexual orientation. For those that have limited knowledge of diversity within the queer community, a great opportunity to learn would be to reach out to someone who is on the e board of GSA! I went to the LGBTQ trivia night and learned so much about the queer community through a social event. While I believe that all marginalized groups do indeed deserve respect and attention, not only in Wheelocks culture, but the culture of our country, we need to take a look at clubs like GSA and listen to what they have to say as well.
