The Stonewall Center will kick off the new academic year with an open house on Thursday, Sept. 5 from 5 to 7 p.m. in Crampton Hall, 256 Sunset Ave. Vegetarian food will be provided. Stonewall Center director Genny Beemyn says, “This is a great opportunity for LGBT people and allies to meet and find out about the resources offered by the center.”

The center provides support, advocacy and programming for LGBT and allied students, staff and faculty on campus and for the larger Pioneer Valley. It also seeks to educate the campus and local community about heterosexism, genderism and sexual and gender prejudice in order to create a more inclusive and welcoming climate for LGBT individuals and their allies.
