  • Roger Life: Grayson Scanlon is Here and Proud

    “Growing up, a lot of my queer identity was founded in an online community. To go to college and be able to celebrate my queer and trans friendships in-person means so much to me," says Junior Grayson Scanlon, Sexuality and Gender Alliance's Outreach Chair. "When we had to be remote in the spring of 2020, it felt like I had to regress to having that identity only be online. Being able to go back on campus is a big deal because we are still here and proud, despite everything that is going on.”
