Christian college students are taking a stand against antigay bigotry on campus

Here’s something you don’t hear about everyday…

A group of brave students from Hope College, a private Christian university in Holland, Michigan, are doing something pretty cool: They’re using social media to shine a light on the homophobia, racism, and bigotry running rampant on their campus.

#95_stories is a student-run social media campaign that allows minority students to submit anonymous one-sentence stories/remarks/confessions about their experiences dealing with bigotry directed at them by their classmates.

“We want to change the culture and hearts,” Joshua Chun Wah Kam, spokesperson for the group, tells M Live. “I hope as people read these stories they are asking themselves some questions.”

“Am I someone that’s been hurting others? If not reflected in these stories, am I complicit? What can I do to help? How can I be an ally?”

The campaign kicked off on December 1 and will run through the end of the school year.
