Title: GLBT Discrimination at ISU
Author(s): ANTH285 07-13
Subject(s): LGBT Gay Lesbian Homosexual Hate Crime ANTH285 F07 ISU
Abstract: In this paper, I discuss the results of an ethnographic project about discrimination against GLBT students at Illinois State University. Using participant observation of PRIDE meetings, interviews with two PRIDE board members, and statistics from the ISU crime reports, I was able find out the prevalence and specifics of hate crimes against GLBT students on campus. Based on these preliminary findings, I argue that discrimination against gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgender individuals does occur at ISU, and I recommend that the administration of the university be aware of this issue, and make help (in the form of counseling) more available and accessible to students who have been victims of hate crimes due to their sexual orientation.
