First, a big welcome to our new readers. We had quite a spike in traffic yesterday. If you’d like to learn more about Queer PHC, please check out the About, Contributor, and FAQ tabs at the top of the page.
Welcome to the QPHC WordPress blog. If you’re wondering and haven’t guessed yet, QPHC stands for Queer Patrick Henry College.
This is a collaborative blog produced by several Patrick Henry College (PHC) students, current and former. We, being a group of people, do have varying opinions and beliefs, but one thing we do share in common is our desire to help and encourage other Patrick Henry College students, current and former, in any way that we can.
As of the start of this blog we are all anonymous contributors to this community, some for personal reasons, some for family/friend reasons, some for professional reasons, and some for multiple of those.
Patrick Henry College maintains a requirement of non-advocacy for enrolled students in regards to LGBTQ issues, but those issues are near and dear to many of us. Thus, this blog has been created as a way for us to express our opinions and thoughts on LGBTQ related topics.
Over time we hope to have posts ranging from general social commentary to specific news related commentary to book reviews to personal testimony and encouragement.
Patrick Henry College does not offer courses in Queer Studies, Sex Ed, or Gender Equality. However, these are issues that are of pressing importance in our culture today and are of importance to us personally. We hope to use this blog to provide information on those topics that are taboo at PHC.
