We are Youngstown State University’s LGBT+ organization. But due to recent realizations that the lettering of LGBT+ can accidentally exclude orientations or identities, we have decided to move forward as a group. We did not want a long abundance of lettering; however, we still wanted to be inclusive to ALL. So we have decided to open up the new chapter of SOGIE.
SOGIE stands for Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity and Expression.
With this new chapter upon us, we truly feel that we stand by our original motto of, “where everyone can be themselves.”
With these 5 letters, we aim to showcase that literally everyone and anyone can come to our group and be accepted.
