Dartmouth College, an Ivy League institution, will spend millions to create a special housing complex exclusively for gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, and transgender students. The building will also house special programs to encourage students in their sexual “expression.”
Campus Reform reports:
Dartmouth College (Dartmouth) approved a measure last Sunday to spend $3.6 million to create a ‘triangle’ house for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, Intersex,and Allied (LGBTQIA) students.
The ‘triangle’ house is named after the triangle symbol gay men in Nazi concentration camps were forced to wear during World War II, LGBTQIA adviser Reese Kelley told Dartmouth Now, a school publication.
According to Reese, the three points of the triangle also symbolize “community, knowledge, and action.”
The new facility will include eight townhouse style rental units, renovated into a 27 bed facility with a communal kitchen, and space to accommodate academic programs and social activities.
The triangle house will function as a living space and will also host programs on “sex, gender, identity and expression, sexuality, and interpersonal relationships.”
