Big Picture photo event
Friday, September 28, 2012
Join The Big Picture, St. Cloud State's photo event to highlight support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) students, employees and allies.
Participants will gather noon Oct. 8 on Atwood Mall for a 12:15 p.m. shoot. The photo will be published in campus and community publications, according to Brandon Johnson, LGBT Resource Center director.

The event will visually represent January 2012 St. Cloud State survey data that suggests 65 percent of self-identified heterosexual students see themselves as allies of LGBT communities.
Organizers at the LGBT Resource Center challenge students and employees to bring to the photo shoot at least one other ally or "out" person.
The Big Picture is part of St. Cloud State's October observance of LGBT History Month. View a calendar of events (PDF).
Organizers expect The Big Picture to become an annual event.
