Stand Up for LGBTQ – Team Trees
What is our purpose?
Our purpose is to focus on our campus’ LGBTQ community and explain why they are mockingbirds. We focus on this community because we believe everyone should have the same rights and should be treated the same. We feel that members of the LGBTQ community are treated unfairly strictly because of their sexual orientation.
What is a mockingbird?
A mockingbird is a metaphor for a person or group of people who are shunned for being themselves.
Interviewing people and their perspective on the LGBTQ community
We interviewed various people to share their points of view on how they feel about the LGBTQ community.
Solution #1: Flyers
One of the solutions we came up with to help spread awareness of the LGBTQ community was to place flyers with messages to bring more attention to LGBTQ.’
Solution #2: Instagram Page
The second solution we thought of was to create an Instagram page from which we could post polls, messages, and posts that inspire people from outside and inside the community.
