Students came together to break the silence on GLBTQ issues at the University of Richmond by recounting true stories of students, faculty and alumni who questioned their sexuality or lived as members of the GLBTQ community during the Live Homosexual Acts at the Pier Sunday night. Sophomore Jon Henry, president of the Student Alliance for Sexual Diversity (SASD), told the 100 people in attendance that he hoped the collection of stories and monologues would help promote more discussion about GLBTQ ? Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer/Questioning ? issues on campus. The performance opened with a reading of the "Letter from the Closet," an anonymous letter submitted to The Collegian in January 2009 by a member of the GLBTQ community who had not yet come out. Henry said the letter and its author had prompted discussion about GLBTQ issues, and that the Live Homosexual Acts intended to further that dialogue. "Tonight we gather to acknowledge the power of communication," Henry said.
