Weekly EmpowerMENt # 4

Trigger warning. There are some LGBTIQ-related hate-slurs below that may spark uncomfortable feelings.

[background] You and your close friend just completed pledging a fraternity. You’ve known that your friend is gay and that you are the only brother in the fraternity to know. He has expressed desperately wanting to come out but he hasn’t felt safe to do so to your other brothers.

You’re fraternity is hosting a party and you overhear two senior brothers yelling at a small group of men dancing close together. They stop the music and shout “get out of here you faggots, no queers are allowed in this house”. After the men are forced to leave, your brothers continue, “Glad there aren’t any homos in our chapter”. You and your friend are uncomfortable with this.
