This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots. Since then, there have been a lot of milestones for the LGBTQ+ community, but there are still many things that make it scary and dangerous for people to come out.

Pride is not a party for you to crash.
College students are not OK.
Started in early 2018, March For Our Lives is an activist organization led by students and survivors of the Parkland, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting who advocate for gun reform in America. Last year, the march was one for the history books, but the same cannot be said for 2019.
Charlie Kirk founded the nonprofit Turning Point USA on June 5, 2012. Its mission statement, as defined by its official website, is to “identify, educate, train, and organize students to promote the principles of freedom, free markets, and limited government."
I don’t think I ever understood what catcalling was until I came to USC.
I always think about the movie moments in my life. Little blips of time covered in a vignette stored in my mind based on silly clichés and terrible teen dramas.
In the era of new-age witchcraft and manic pixie dream girls, horoscopes are making a comeback.
Self care — defined by PsychCentral as “any activity that we do deliberately in order to take care of our mental, emotional, and physical health” — has become quite the trend over the past few years. While many Tumblr blogs would like to convince you that face masks and bubble baths will fix all your problems, they are pretty far off.
In the strange, cynical world we live in, it is easy to get lost in the angst surrounding Valentine’s Day. However, even if it is just a holiday made to exploit human relationships for corporate gain, it also can be pretty beautiful, and people really want to share with the world how beautiful their relationships are.
The idea of pain should not be considered poetic, period. However, there is always a need for three-dimensional characters and emotions, even if the mere subject of agony should not come with a pillow of romance. In the same sense, though, the idea that artists have to be sad in order to make quality content has always frustrated me. I hate that when you tell someone that you are an artist they immediately stereotype you as struggling.
I am scared to hold my girlfriend’s hand in public. For years, I have seen people pull off multi-colored pins and rainbow bracelets after pride in order to stay safe on their rides home, and while the world has become much more friendly towards the LGBTQ+ community, a lot of us still live in fear.
In today’s society it is easy to claim someone is being “too sensitive” or a “special snowflake” in response to them calling out your blatant discrimination that you have disguised as “jokes.” However, when it comes down to it, some folks just don't have a good sense of humor.
It is strange what can change in just ten years.
One of the main questions many students are asking in college is, “How will this get me a job?” And a lot of people will respond with a (somewhat condescending and redundant) response that it’s not for a job, but for a career.
The question of privacy has been under scrutiny since gossip news and mass media have become increasingly popular social media formats. Until recent years, only celebrities were under the steady eye of shady entertainment in the guise of journalism, but now it seems there are more and more accounts springing up on social media that treat college students as if their lives are equal to D-list celebrity drama.
Thanksgiving has come and gone, and the holiday season is upon us. Retail stores are displaying Christmas trees and festive decorations, and storefronts are starting to resemble the inside of a snow globe that relays a warm and happy time of year. Cliche holiday movies are going for a more lucrative approach.
The saying: “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime,” has encompassed how people have viewed success for years. But what if the man does not have the tools to cast a line? What if he does not have access to a body of water? And what if he is taxed every time he goes to use the lake? In order to preach about the path to success, we must first agree where we are starting.
When you Google, “queer places in Columbia SC,” the first, and only, thing on the page is a list of clubs or bars: PT’s 1109, The Capital Club and Art Bar being the most prominent. All of these, however, do not open until 5 p.m. and are either exclusive to members or 18 plus. On top of that, most of the restaurants or coffee houses mentioned in the “South Carolina Gay Nightlife Guide” are not LGBTQ+ exclusive, but only “gay-friendly,” and while it is good to know where the gay allies take solace, there is still a major need for queer-only spaces that do not serve alcohol.
As of 2015, an average of 67 percent of all students enrolled full-time get financial support for their education. However, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) does not account for transgender students, or anyone whose sex does not align with the one they were assigned at birth. There are still many queer students who do get financial aid or scholarships, but only by often erasing a major part of their identity.
