gay morehouse students react to vibe article

October 18, 2010
When VIBE magazine published an article called "Mean Girls of Morehouse" this month, it was undoubtably instigating debate and conversation regarding the gay community at the all male school in Atlanta, GA. The article profiles a 20-year-old former Morehouse student named Diamond, who left the school because he felt it did not support his openly gay lifestyle and overtly female wardrobe, especially after Morehouse passed a dress code last fall, banning students from cross dressing on campus grounds. But did VIBE take into consideration how the men at Morehouse would respond to the article? Did VIBE care? Students at Morehouse got together and had a heated debate on campus grounds and someone recorded and posted bits to youtube. Check out the video here. What do you think of the article and video response?
