LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender) students at VSU say they organized a protest after the two men started shouting anti-gay slurs in front of Nevins Hall. After disrupting classes, the men were moved to the expression platform in front of Langdale Hall. We were told the religious group was on the campus from 11 a.m.-3:50 p.m.
