A recent edition of the “MTSU On the Record” radio program previews the university’s inaugural LGBT+ College Conference.
Rigsby and Villasana are members of MT Lambda, the student organization hosting the first statewide collegiate conference in Tennessee to focus on the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.
The gathering is slated for April 10-12 with the theme of “The Advocate in You.”
Student organizations from more than 30 colleges and universities, along with corporate and community leaders, are slated to be in attendance.
“Our overall goal, with all of our sessions and all of the speakers that we have lined up, is to equip students across the state with the tools they need to go back and create a positive change on their individual campuses,” said Rigsby, who is president of MT Lambda.
The conference will be the culmination of this year’s SpringOut Pride Week at MTSU, an LGBT+ celebration with various events scheduled for April 7-9.
MT Lambda has supported the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community at MTSU since its founding in 1988. It is the oldest collegiate student organization of its kind in Tennessee.
