Emmanuel’s LGBTQ Group, OUTspoken collaborated with HUELLAS for the International Day of Love Celebration on April 20th in the quad. OUTspoken emulated the “No H8” campaign made famous by Hollywood celebrities who posed for photos with duct tape over their mouth, expressing their silence for the LGTBQ community. On the quad, student were able to take their picture with duct tape silencing them and write on note cards why they were silent. From being silent for loved ones to silent for inequalities as whole, over 100 Emmanuel students participated!
