Julian Perez ’17, co-president of the Princeton University Latinx Perspectives Organization, said the demonstrators were there to stand against the values that Trump and his supporters prescribe to. He acknowledged that hateful sentiments and hostile actions are not new for marginalized groups, but that the protest was organized to show that these groups are united and will not back down given Trump’s presidential victory. “It’s another reminder that we have a lot of work to do, and that we have to fight.

Pride Alliance is a group that representsthe interests of the LGBT and questioning members of the University community.Andy Cofino, the Center's program coordinator, explainedthe LGBT Center advises, supports and checks in with the program every week, though the group is very student-run. This year’s Pride Month has many more events, as well as considerably larger expenditures and bigger ticket items, according to Freeman. “We want to reach out more to the Princeton campus,” they said. The events include workshops from writer Sinclair Sexsmith on gender, sexuality and trigger warnings, speed-friending and karaoke, film screenings, art exhibits, lectures and cupcake decorating with the Princeton Aces, a group for asexual and questioning students, according to Freeman. For most events, attendance typically ranges from 40 to 70 people, with heavier attendance for the ticketed events like karaoke, Bellamy said. Pride Month events kicked off with the “We Are Here” Queer monologues in Wilson College Blackbox Theater April 1 and 2. “I always think the Queer monologues are very impactful and are able to bring the community together,” Cofino said.

Tiger Inn promises to make reforms following sex photo distribution

Tiger Inn's recent decision to fire two of its officers after they sent emails that were found to be disrespectful to women has reignited concerns about gender equality at the eating club that was once the last bastion of male-only membership. One of the emails included a picture of a female student performing oral sex on a male student, while a second email encouraged the membership to jeer Sally Frank ’80 — whose activism ultimately forced TI to accept women — at a recent lecture on campus. The club's graduate board has pledged to revise bicker and initiations, have more female undergraduate officers, create a co-ed bicker committee and include women in its graduate board. Former vice president Adam Krop ’15 and former treasurer Andrew Hoffenberg ’15 were fired last week, The New York Times reported. They will be moving out of their clubhouse dormitories, said Eric Pedersen ’82, a member of the TI graduate board.

Two TI officers ousted following distribution of sex photo

Tiger Inn has removed two undergraduate officers – its vice president and treasurer – following the distribution of an email containing a sexually explicit photo, and a separate email that seemed to mock activist Sally Frank ’80, whose lawsuit forced TI to accept women as members in the early 1990s. The number of ousted TI officers now totals six this year, after four officers were forced to resign earlier this year due to an unrelated incident in which the club allegedly hosted a party of the semi-secret drinking society known as the 21 Club. The first email, from mid-October, was sent by former vice president Adam Krop ’15, the New York Times reported. The email contained a photo of a woman engaged in a sex act at TI.
