'Ask Me': What LGBTQ students want their professors to know.

Twelve LGBTQ students are interviewed in this video by the Chronicle of Higher Education and discuss everyday challenges they face on campus.

The video offers insight as to how simple everyday actions that most people take for granted (like a professor taking roll on the first day of class or finding a safe bathroom to use) can invoke much anxiety and fear for those in the LGBTQ community. Hear their stories and listen to their message: Ask Me. Ask me how I identify myself, which pronouns I use, what I prefer to be called.
