My name is Molly, and I am in my second year at NMU. I come from Midland, MI, probably one of the most boring places on earth. However, we do have the only Tridge in the world, so that’s pretty nifty...

MQT comes out for celebrations

MQT comes out for celebrations

A celebration designed for inclusivity, community and acceptance will be hosted at the Ore Dock Brewing Co. on Friday, Oct. 11 from 5 to 8 p.m. in coordination with NMU students, staff and community members.

“There will be an open mic for anyone to share their stories of empowerment or expressing how they worked through adversity in the LGBTQIA+ community,” senior public relations student Sarah Schollmeyer said.

The goal of “Marquette Comes Out” is to encourage people of all ages who are queer, questioning or an ally to come share their truth to a community that is ready to stand behind them, Schollmeyer said. Schollmeyer is helping organize the musical and emotional event through the NMU Allies.

“Any student who considers themselves an ally or who identifies on the LGBTQIA+ spectrum and is involved in any form of leadership on campus is allowed to apply [for this scholarship]. Right now the scholarship is $500. However, it will grow with t-shirt sales and penny wars,” Schollmeyer said.

Everyone is welcome to attend. Information about the scholarship can be found at the Multicultural Education and Resource Center.
