(TheProudRepublic.com) – As if they aren’t receiving plenty of privileges already in a nation held captive by the far left’s insinuations, LGBT individuals can now get free haircuts just for being “queer” and “transgender” – as has become the case under a program of California State University San Bernardino.
Cal State University San Bernardino has offered over 100 complimentary haircuts to students through its “gender-affirming” Queer Cuts initiative since its inception last year.
This endeavor, a collaboration between the university’s Queer and Transgender Resource Center and Pan African Student Success Center, aims to provide haircuts and braiding services in a supportive and inclusive setting, as shared on the center’s Instagram page, The College Fix reports.
Lee Stovall, who oversees the Queer and Transgender Resource Center, initiated this program to assist students in achieving a personal look that reflects their identity, as reported by The San Bernardino Sun.
“It’s a scary time to be queer and trans right now,” Stovall stated.
The program has collaborated with local hair stylists to offer cost-free hair services to a diverse student body, including those who are transgender, nonbinary, or gender-nonconforming.
Stovall has emphasized that students who identify as “cisgender” are also encouraged to utilize the program.
The latest Queer Cuts event was held on October 18 at the university. Stovall expressed a commitment to the well-being of queer and transgender students.
“I’m just trying to make the lives of queer and transgender students easier and safer, and that’s why I’m here, and that’s why I’m in higher ed and Student Affairs,” the pro-transgenderism activist said.
Bec Farrell, a stylist participating this year, commented on the intimidating and sometimes toxic atmosphere that queer individuals can face in traditional hairstyling venues.
“Hair holds trauma, in my opinion,” Farrell told The Sun.
“I wanted to really break the binary in hair, because hair doesn’t have a gender,” the stylist added.
A student named Ariz Martinez recounted her positive experience with Queer Cuts, noting that the service alleviated some of her stress from work and school.
“I feel so much better. I feel happy I brought myself today,” she said.
The Fix points out universities increasingly provide programs and events tailored to LGBTQ students.
Villanova University, for instance, held a “Queer Spin Class” during its “Inclusion Week”.
Additionally, Canada’s Humber College Arboretum hosted a “Queering Nature” event on the manifestations of queerness in the natural world.
