Our trusty Facebook friend “Haddox Peter,” whose real name is Peter Haddox, recently shared this photo of the school’s “spirit rock,” as painted by members of Pride at UT Dallas last week. Haddox, who serves as president, said this of the group:
Our biggest meeting had about 65 people, though we get about 40 students at our meetings on average. The group has only been established for one school year (making Fall 2010-Spring 2011 our second year).
UTD is actually pretty LGBT-friendly. We get tons of help from the faculty and staff, as well as SafeZone, which is sort of an LGBT advocacy training program aimed at school employees.
We do paint the spirit rock pretty often, mostly when we have upcoming events to promote!
