LGMPO under fire because of ‘U’ homophobia

Feb. 3, 1993 — Changes is personnel and programming have placed the Lesbian Gay Male Programming Office — a counseling, informational, and support organization for the lesbian, gay male and bisexual community — under fire with its constituents, who wonder if the office still plays a part in their lives.

“Because there is a great deal of homophobia from (University President James) Duderstadt and the regents, LGMPO needs to be more assertive and stand up for our needs,” said Paul Verner, a Business School student and member of the Gay, Lesbian and Bisexual Business School Association.

In an attempt to clear up many of the concerns people have about the office, LGMPO will hold a meeting to address its critics, representatives of the office said.
