Center For Sexual & Gender Diversity To Host ‘Love Is Louder’ Event November 3

Penn State’s Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity will host a “Love is Louder” event next week in opposition to an event featuring provocative political speaker Milo Yiannopoulos.

The event will take place from 6 to 10 p.m. on Wednesday, November 3, in the HUB’s Heritage Hall. According to the center’s Instagram post, it will feature music, food, and activities to “inspire love and community within the Penn State student body.”

“The Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity is aware of the Milo Yiannopoulos event on campus next week and are working to support students who have been impacted by the advertisements and hateful rhetoric,” the center said.

Advertising for Yiannopoulos’s speech around campus has caught flak for the use of its tagline, “Pray The Gay Away.” The CSGD is encouraging students to come out to the event in order to support concerned students and “spread the message that hate has no home at Penn State.”

By Tuesday night, a Change.org petition urging Penn State to uninvite Yiannopoulos from campus has gained nearly 7,000 signatures.
