"Kiah McConnell, a senior in sociology, presented her research project regarding the LGBTQ+ community at OSU. McConnell completed her project, the OSU LGBTQ+ Community Film, a 38 minute video to address the LGBTQ+ history at OSU as well as the disparity in records at OSU for queer and trans students of color. The video was made in collaboration with OSU Queer Archives and features interviews with student leaders from the LGBTQ+ community at OSU. "I want this to be a beginning, not an end," McConnell said. "Something to be continued and added upon to promote the LGBTQ+ community at OSU." McConnell got help from the LGBTQ+ programs on campus such as the Pride Center, Rainbow Continuum and SOL, and hopes to have her film added into the archives and promoted through these programs."
