This Gay Lip Sync Rocked A Christian University

One Oregon student is making the rounds online after he came out to his Christian University through an extravagant performance.

Reid Arthur gathered together a group of his friends to help him leave a lasting impression on their school, George Fox University. The group danced to a combination of Taylor Swift’s “…Ready For It” and “You Need To Calm Down.”

During the second song, Arthur stood in the middle of the group. The two lines of friends on opposite sides of him then pulled on his sleeves to reveal rainbow ribbons hanging from his shirt.

Coming out is always a daring process. A process, which, most LGBTQ people have to continue doing throughout their lives. But Reid Arthur’s decision to come out to a large crowd of George Fox University students, faculty, staff, and more was an even more daring decision. The reason being that the Christian University holds “the historic Christian position on [the] topic” of marriage. Meaning, they see it as between a man and a woman.

But that’s not the only heroic thing done by Reid Arthur and his friends. The group won the lip-sync competition and its cash prize. They then promised to donate the $500 winnings to LGBTQ charities GLAAD and The Trevor Project.

  1. We have come so far to see a gay student be embraced by his Christian school , I could never even imagine that happening 10 years ago when I was at my Christian school.
