LAS VEGAS – (10-27-21) – Campus Pride, a nonprofit organization, has released its annual “Worst List” of colleges and universities deemed ‘unsafe’ for LGBTQ+ students in the United States.

Campus Pride works to make college and university campuses safe for the LGBTQ+ community and created their ‘Worst List’ back in 2015. As of 2021, 50 new campuses were added to the Campus Pride ‘Worst list’.

According to Campus Pride, universities on the list are allegedly accused of the following:

• 1 – Received and/or applied for a Title IX exemption to discriminate against LGBTQ youth.

• 2 – Demonstrated past history and track record of anti-LGBTQ actions, programs and practices.

“These aren’t just bad campuses or the worst campuses — these campuses fundamentally are unsafe for LGBTQ students, and, as a result, they’re fundamentally unsafe for all students to go to,” Shane Windmeyer, founder and executive director of Campus Pride, told NBC News. “They promote an environment of hostility, of discrimination, harassment, toward a group of people, and who wants — when you’re trying to be educated — to have that type of negative learning environment?”

Colleges and universities that made the Campus Pride ‘Worst List’ 0f 2021 are religiously-affiliated, including Brigham Young University in Utah and Liberty University in Virginia. They also added Seventeen Texas schools including two from the Bayou City: The College of Biblical Studies and Houston Baptist University.

Campus Pride says that Liberty University reportedly placed students into conversion therapy as well as its never ending affiliation with the anti-LGBTQ+ Liberty Counsel as evidence for making the 2021 ‘Worst List’.
