The History of the HU Queer Press
The original HU Queer Press created a zine called State of the Gay in 2011. It started with a journey to visit an old friend in Chicago, then morphed into the dream of starting a movement. Once the anonymous zine was completed and released, it was blocked from Harding servers, which sparked the interest of the media.
Now it is being reborn.
Though we are a new group of students with new ideas, we still have the same goal: the acceptance of the LGBTQ+ community. We want this publication to spark honest and intelligent conversations that will hopefully lead to change, not only in attitude, but in policy. We want to be a safe haven for queer students to make their voices heard.
We want to say that we are here. We are queer. We are Harding.
