Love is Love is an annual, weeklong campaign for awareness and support for LGBT community both at Darden and in the workplace. The power of its message is its simplicity: Regardless of gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity or religion, all relationships are equal.
This year, Love is Love was sponsored by Johnson & Johnson and Target and included the following events:
- First Coffee: Professor Martin Davidson and leadership from Gays, Lesbians and Allies at Darden shared remarks about the Love is Love campaign, which was followed by community-wide photo of Darden students, faculty and staff wearing the Love is Love t-shirt.
- UVA Safe Space Training: U.Va.’s LGBT Resource Center facilitated a discussion on effective ways allies can help support the LGBT community.
- Photo Exhibit: Throughout the month of February, Darden displayed an exhibit by Jeff Sheng featuring images of military personnel in response to Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and its repeal.
- Life After Don’t Ask Don’t Tell Panel: Jeff Sheng, Military LGBTs and their partners shared their experiences after the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.
- Religion and Same Sex Marriage Panel: The religious-affiliated affinity clubs at Darden hosted a discussion on religion and same sex marriage.
- “Out at Work” Film Screening: Professor Yael Grushka-Cockayne opened her home to members of the Darden community for a screening of the documentary “Out at Work,” which was followed by a discussion about workplace scenarios involving the LGBT community.
