WELCOME TO GAY BAYLOR
So you’re back for a Baylor football game, Homecoming or one of the other hundreds of events Baylor alumni get invited to as a former student at Baylor University in Waco or Mary Hardin Baylor in Belton.
Or you’re just a Baylor student who thinks or knows he or she is gay or lesbian or bisexual. Or maybe you’re just questioning your sexuality and want to find some friends to talk over the issues.
Could be that you’re part of the gay Baylor team. You may be a Baylor Bear or you may be a Mary-Hardin Baylor Crusader. Either way you’re a part of the Baylor family just like everyone else with Baylor connections. And we want you to know you aren’t alone. There are thousands of us across the country – many still in the closet, and others who have come to terms with our Southern Baptist roots and our sexual identity.
We’re a website for gay Baylor alumni and students who need to know what’s going on in the area while they are at school or visiting for one of the many Baylor activities. Or maybe you’re looking for a gay or gay friendly therapist, or place to go, or groups to get involved with.
We’re here to help. Take a look at the history of Baylor and gay students, check out what’s happening at the local LGBT bars and nightspots, or get to know some of our more famous Baylor alumni who are out and proud … and ready to walk that path many of us will one day take.
STORIES TO READ
The New York Times did a story in 2013 about the Griner effect for the LGBT community at Baylor. There’s still a long ways to go but judge for yourself the effect of the basketball star’s “coming out” on how Baylor handles gay and lesbian students. Story mentions several out Baylor alumni.
Groove Music Magazine featured Baylor’s Prodigal Son Del Shores on its cover for its September 2016 issue. In it Del talks about life at Baylor and why he still uses his time at the school in his hit movies and plays.
