Queer Youth - On Campus and in the Media
+
-
 
+
-
Curated by Sharon Ullman
+
-
 
+
-
The queer youth exhibit focuses on  activism on college and high school campuses as well as representations of queer youth in the media. This exhibit was researched by Bryn Mawr and Haverford students for a class on the History of Sexuality in America. Topics range from GSA’s to GLF to hate crimes perpetrated against at risk youth in the second half of the twentieth century.

==Paragraph and Spacing issues==
+
-
 
+
-
This is a paragraph.
+
-
 
+
-
To create another paragraph, I need to type the Enter (or Return) key twice. This gives a blank line in the source. If I type some text and hit my Return key only once
+
-
and type some
+
-
more
+
-
text,
+
-
it will
+
-
still be
+
-
considered
+
-
one
+
-
paragraph
+
-
(see the source of this paragraph and how it's different from the displayed).
+
-
 
+
-
If I type the Return key three (or more times), I will be creating empty paragraphs on the page (see how there more space right after this paragraph, again check the source).
+
-
 
+
-
 
+
-
There is really no reason for having more than one blank line (two returns) in the source, Since paragraphs are already separated from on another by a bit of space comfortable for extended reading.

William Edward “Billy” Glover was born September 16, 1932, in Shreveport, Louisiana. He grew up in Bossier City and attended Bossier schools, the high school being four blocks from his home on Monroe Street. He played flute in the band, which traveled over the summers to Lion Club meetings. Glover graduated in 1950 and went to Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, where he says he “had more fun than learning.” He had been religious throughout high school and most of college, but by the time he left LSU he sought elsewhere for answers to complex issues such regarding race, gender, and sexuality.
