Kent State Gets Gay Boost

Kent State’s most remembered for the May 4th massacre, but Harry Jackson’s hoping to change that.

The Ohio businessman just gave the Akron-area university $2 million to boost students’ gay rights activism.

The money, the school’s largest LGBT donation ever, will be spent on scholarships, booking pro-gay speakers and offering other lavender-hued programs. Said Jackson: “I’m hoping they’ll get politically active and educated. By educating them, they’ll become part of the process.”

      Great! I always like to hear about money going to the good cause of gay rights activism.
