While there was no Mosaic this past week, we wanted to give a bit of an idea of the faces and facilitators behind Mosaic. . . . Meet Marlon (He/him). Marlon is a Doctoral student at UT studying Counselor Education. Marlon hails from Sumter, SC and very proudly lets others know his deep love of orange stems first from Clemson University. He is a part of the UTK Wesley Foundation and has led several community discussions around queer theology, the intersection of race, queerness, and sexuality, and LGBTQ inclusion in the modern church. . . . When Marlon isn't studying or writing, he's probably singing with the Knoxville Gay men's chorus, watching sports, or playing Ultimate frisbee. . . . Wanna know more about this semester of MosaicKeep your eyes peeled! We meet Tuesdays at 6pm at the Wesley Foundation. #LGBT #FaithfullyLGBT #Inclusion #UTK #VolMeansAll

I've been wearing this lovely shirt from the incredible @utkpridecenter almost every Friday since I got it and have had some interesting conversations with people because of it. One dude tried to argue with me about rainbows being a Christian symbol, not for gays. Another dude was just flabbergasted that I've worked on campus as long as I have. The power of sunscreen? Anyway, so glad to be able to rep the pride center and their/our message of inclusion on this campus. Even with the weird comments I may get. #volmeansall #utkpridecenter

Tomorrow many of us will choose to observe, celebrate, honor, remember, pray for, protest against THIS 4th of July...or maybe not! May we ALL be surrounded by family and friends and may we ALL find comfort in God’s healing GRACEπŸ™πŸΌπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ’œ #stlukesepiscopalchurch #familiesbelongtogether #poorpeoplescampaign #applepie #cubsbaseball #massincarceration #freehealthcare #ourrevolution #stillfeelingthebern #volmeansall #plannedparenthood #chismfamily #glasgowky #opiodcrisis #riddlefamily #wilsonfamily #era #sokno #ifnotberniethenjoe2020 #barrencountyky #lgbtqi #fireworks #fortheanimals #govegan #lindaforknoxcountymayor #en4tn #earlyvoting #fivepoints #momsagainstgunviolence #nomuslimban at Glasgow, Kentucky

"Personally I think choosing between men and women is like choosing between cake and ice cream. You’d be daft not to try both when there are so many different flavors." "Bisexuality is misunderstood; the adage is that you're either straight or gay or lying, but that's not my experience. To call me anything other than bisexual would be inaccurate." Happy Pride, y'all! πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆ #VolMeansAll #BiiiiiTheWay... #pride2018 at Downtown Knoxville

Humbled to win the Division of Student Life Award for Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion! Even more excited and proud of the following: 1) Diversity Educators won Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion for student organizations 2) Nat from DE won 2 awards-career excellence and Unsung Hero and 3) Miranda (Lead Tutor) won the student Leadership Legacy award! They make me a better professional, and I’m lucky to be surrounded by such kind, talented, wonderful students! I also had one of my best friends present the award to me, and my partner and love Tom was there to support! Cheers! #diversitymatters #representationmatters #volmeansall #SApro #HESA #VFL #GBO at University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Caution: I'm not a psychologist nor a therapist I'm sharing the tools of survival to help those that need it and I encourage you to still go see your therapist. To the students and faculty and workers of the University of Tennessee and anyone that is listening download these apps to train your mind to get stronger and more powerful than you can ever imagine on your phone if you are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder anxiety or any forms of severe trauma and if this will help you recognize the signs of gaslighting and how to counter it faster think of it as hardcore occlumency lessons. Also do some basic math and work your way up for here to keep your mind sharp and focused as well as your IQ It's time to rise up and say enough is enough to mental abuse! #dearwhiteutk #dearwhiteut #blackmentalhealthmatters #ptsd #gaslightingawareness #gaslighting #mentalhealthawareness #yougoodman #suicideprevention #anxietydisorders #mentalabuse #utknoxville #notrumpism #notrumpnokkknofascistusa #fuckthetrumpcollective #blkknox #muslim #asian #latin@ #lgbtiqa+ #queerandtransofcolor #volmeansall

"...where appropriate, regardless of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, pregnancy, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, physical or mental disability, or covered veteran status." At EMP, we standby the idea that #volmeansall. Recently, a local white supremacy group has sought to divide our community through hateful messages. We, as EMP, do not welcome this group and their messages. We seek to remind our members that they should never feel excluded from our organization. Resources available to our community include: the Pride Center @utkpridecenter, the Engineering Diversity Office in Perkins Hall, the International House, and the UTK Couseling Center. at University of Tennessee, Knoxville

We painted the rock to let everyone know that Vol means All and anyone who stands for white supremacy is not welcome on our campus.....the next day we were pleased to find that our peers had helped extend that message. #utvols are united against #hate #volmeansall #nonazis #greatamericanmeltingpot

#DontComeToUT they changed black cultural center name has changed to appease, pacify sensitive white people's feelings on campus. Boo fucking hoo. #DontComeToUT because it's widely known "the silent campus" a sea full of hypocrites, cowards, voiceless, traitors, and opportunists. #DontCometoUT because it is hell on earth and death for some multiple marginalized identity students. Land w/o smiles & brains. #DontComeToUT Because the hatred between straight and LGBTIQ is so bad that the lgbtiqa students don't want collaborate with other groups that are predominately Straight mostly out of fear that they'll take credit what queer folks have done without giving credit where credit is due. #DontComeToUT black men( preferably athletes) heed this warning don't ride no white horses(women) it's a rape trap. Everytime an accusation happen 50% of the time it's sometimes a black face on the Daily Beacon as the perp. Black men listen to Kilo- White Horse on YouTube. Keep what your momma teach you. #DontComeToUT because once you're on judicial probation by judicial affairs you will have a prisoner"s mindstate. it'll guaranteed to fuck you up until you're reduced to a malfunctioning robot. Just think of yourself as strong as Jean -Luc Picard being assimulated into the borg Collective bits and pieces of identity will be languished. Remember existing instead of living is much worse than death #DontComeToUT because their associate Deans are manipulative by coercing you to signing bullshit behavior agreements even if you have no recollection of memory of doing any Acts . This is tantamount to emotional abuse. #utdiversitymatters #utdm #UniteUT

Asinine Moment No.1- University of Tennessee Offense: UTK band performing for Donald Trump On today December 30th 2016 the University of tennessee-knoxville is forcing the UTK band to perform for Donald Trump. First, Rockettes and now this?! I've seen the lineup for Donald Trump inauguration it's the whitest shit I've ever seen since the Bush Administration. Just for clarification it is not the band fault but rather the people in charge the administration is at fault which is nobody surprised at all after all this campus has a history of pussing out very badly. Frankly, let's take a trip down memory lane on how much the University itself are pussies. 2016 they cut funding from the diversity inclusion programs at utk spend it on some stupid bumper stickers for police just to cater to the heteronormative white and Christian folks on campus. As my pal, Sunn m'cheaux said "don't BS yourself". The real casualties of the battle were sex week and the pride Center they were just using other minority safe spaces as decoys and as a scapegoats for the darkest agenda, so blame can be shifted LGBT folks on campus instead of the administrators and leaders so oppressed minorities can wipe themselves out loud they're laughing at them behind the scenes . This is one of the most homophobic campus in the country of the united States and the lower-ranked school bad decision, Cowardly move. it literally broke the back of the spirit all the people on campus but it's enough to make them throw in the towel for fighting for equality which I wouldn't blame them. let me reassure you volunteers these poor out of touch Misfits can be defeated. There's been an outbreak of hate crimes on campus has been mute during the trumpocalypse. 2016 furthermore utk Pride Center was consistently attack buy some cowardly homophobes using anti-gay slurs and butchering their Flags and the campus police aren't doing shit by not ruling it out as I hate crime. 2013 Sex week was consistently attacked thanks to a legendary homophobe named Stacey Campfield. End result was that asinine idea of opt-in and opt-out thing that's been going on on campus My Grade for this asinine moment is an EF= epic fail
