Do I have to be gay to be in the ALLYance?
NO! The ALLYance is a student organization at Morehead State. Members include LGBT individuals and their allies. Our goal is to promote equality and acceptance and everyone's support is welcome!
Although it is difficult to to give an exact percentage of those who identify as LGBT, the accepted average is currently estimated at 5-10%. However, many feel that this number is inaccurate as many people do not report their orientation in census data.Morehead State University has a current enrollment of over 10,000 students. Based on the estimate that at least 10% of our students identify as LGBT, there are 900 students, not including allies, who benefit from the ALLYance's presence on campus. Similarly, MSU employs over 1,100 people, suggesting that we are home to at least 110 LGBT faculty and staff. (Source: Gallup)
