Following his highly publicized harassment by homophobic memes online, Carleton student Arun Smith is taking the fight against discrimination off the screen and onto the streets. He is partnering with the Canadian Federation of Students (CFS) for their Challenge Homophobia and Transphobia campaign. The campaign had its kickoff at Carleton on May 24th. It included an info table, postering, and an outdoor meeting of the Challenge Homophobia and Transphobia Coalition, where we discussed future goals, and tactics to attain them. I basically took pictures of everything that had bright colours on it, and I also got a short interview with Arun about the campaign. It should give you a good idea of how they day went, and what we can be expecting to see from the campaign.
