Allegheny College march responds to homosexual slur on doors

MEADVILLE, Pa. (AP) — Hundreds of students and faculty have marched across the Allegheny College campus to call attention to an anti-homosexual slur written on dormitory doors twice in recent weeks.

Officials at the college in Meadville say they’re still investigating the incidents which occurred in mid-February and again earlier this month.

Wednesday night’s march was organized by a campus group called Queers ’n Allies in cooperation with several other campus groups.

College president James Mullen says the investigation is ongoing.

The Meadville Tribune says students whose doors were targeted with the word aren’t commenting publicly because they want to maintain their privacy.
