East Lansing Organization Combines Spartan And LGBT Pride

By Shelby Clark

With Michigan State University heading to the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day, all eyes are turning to East Lansing. Former GLBT Spartans can take the chance to see what else the school has to offer them beyond football.

The MSU GLBT Alumni Association is a group for all GLBT Spartans who have graduated. Since 2005, the organization has built its mission around four principles: building and maintaining positive relationships between the school and GLBT alumni, aiding current GLBT students at MSU, providing networking for its members and working with other MSU organizations to promote positive change at the school and in the area.

The alumni group works alone and with other groups to provide resources like scholarships, tutoring and mentoring to both current and former students. Events are held throughout the year, including the annual MSU GLBT Homecoming Party every fall.

Current members of the alumni group have gone on to run for state seats, work on TV news stations, become CEOs and more. Popular YouTube vlogger, Tyler Oakley, has been a well-known GLBT alumni of the school, as well.

To contact the GLBT Alumni of MSU, e-mail glbtalum@msu.edu or send mail to P.O. Box 4505, East Lansing, MI, 48826. The group keeps a confidential list of all members.
