What kind of nightlife or weekend activities do you participate in?
If there’s a festival in Atlanta or something going on on-campus, I usually like to go to those with a few friends and hang out there. In the beginning of the year, there are a lot of things going on, like, we have Black Pride and regular Pride, and there is Dragon-Con and Anime Weekend in Atlanta. So, there are a lot of festivals and conventions going on. Sometimes when I’m feeling a bit lazier, I’ll just stay in and try to get some homework done. Usually, I’m going to a festival or going to an event, party, or something hosted by an AUC person.
How has being LGBTQ+ influenced your nightlife experience? Is there much of an LGBTQ+ nightlife scene at Morehouse or in Atlanta?
There isn’t a Queer nightlife scene on campus but there is one in Atlanta. I have a lot of friends who have participated in it, but I haven’t done so myself. I’m trying to be more involved in it, but I don’t really get involved in the nightlife in Atlanta. There’s definitely a Queer community in the AUC and the clubs and organizations will have events from time to time, but I wouldn’t say there is a Queer nightlife on campus.
How happy are you with the options for weekend activities at Morehouse? Is there anything you would change if you could?
I’m pretty okay with it. If I was able to change something, I would like to have more Queer spaces to go to on the weekends and more Queer safe spaces on campus where we could all get together and eat food and watch movies.
