Abstract/ Summary

This week our university is celebrating "Pride Week" in an attempt to educate and honor gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered issues. There are a number of programs planned throughout the week. This time provides us with an opportunity for education, as well as reflection and discussion. In his writing, "Homophobia on the College Campus," Brian McNaught (author of "On Being Gay," "Gay Issues in the Workplace," and "Now That I'm Out, What Do I Do?") provides us with a list of questions to prompt such a discussion. A sampling of these questions are listed below. As you read each one, please take the time to reflect on our own university. Do we really live in a "Safe Zone?"
