WBC Protest at UChicago
The Westboro Baptist Church brought their show to campus, leading the student body to a myriad of counter-protests and celebrations of pride and diversity. Whatever the WBC's goals are, we'll never know, but the students' voice was heard loud and clear: "Many identities, one community."

During the celebration, students raised over $500 for the Broadway Youth Center, which provides health services for the LGBTQ community and also collected signatures on a petition supporting the overturning of Prop 8.
