action, Harrison Prado said. In addition
to the political aspect of the rally, speak-
ers focused on how the University can
be a more friendly environment for
transsexuals. "We're trying to get gen-
der-neutral housing on campus - dorm
rooms that aren't specifically female and
male" Severs said.
Harrison Prado agreed that residence
halls on this campus need to be
reformed. "Housing policies are rela-
tively supportive of lesbian, gay and
bisexual people," Harrison Prado said.

"But transgender, transsexual and gen-
der-queer students can have real issues
including those of personal safety when
living in residence halls, and using pub-
lic restrooms and public lockerooms."
Harrison Prado said University offi-
cials have been working to accommo-
date these students, starting with gender
neutral bathrooms in some University
"The 3rd floor bathroom of the
Michigan Union is now Gender inclu-

Kolb said student activism pushed Ann
Arbor to pass the first anti-discrimina-

residents in 1972.
The rally culminated with a ceremo-
nial walk through a door, made of card-
board and streamers, for students and
staff to publicly acknowledge their sexu-

minority sexual-orientation students on
The student-sponsored event was
organized by the Gender MOSAIC

Q&A, a student group dedicated to the
support of transsexual, transgender,
bigender and gender-queer students, and
QWER, a lesbian, gay, bisexual and
transgender campus group. The event
had the support of the Lesbian, Gay,
Bisexual and Transgender Office.
Frederic MacDonald-Dennis, director
of the LGBT office, said he is proud of

Yesterday's Coming Out Day rally
was dedicated to the late Ruth Ellis, the
oldest African American active lesbian
in Detroit, who announced her sexual
orientation in 1914. Psychology prof.
Charles Behling said he attended the
rally to show his support for people of
all sexual orientations. "I'm here as an
ally, because I believe if any of us aren't
free, none of us are free," Behling said.
