Rice University Gay and Lesbian Support Group yearbook page
Rice University Gay and Lesbian Support Group yearbook page, taken from page 89 of the 1983 Rice Campanile. Beneath the group’s name is a photograph of twenty some students, along with a dog, standing or sitting at the base of Willy’s statue in the Academic Quad, with a portion of the Architecture building visible in the background. The majority of the students have paper grocery bags over their heads, and they are identified humorously in the caption as: Harry J. Spooner, I.Q. Public, Rin Tin Tin, Wilhelmina Marcks Rice, Wonder Woman, Valley Girl with bagged face, Braniac V.S. Anacin II, “Eggs” Ackley, Bruce Wayne, Dick Grayson, Lamont Cranston, The Shadow, Typical Rice Guy, Typical Rice Girl, Clark Kent, Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm, Sappho, Plato, Damon, Pythias, DaVinci, Alexander the Great, Go Down Willy we got something to tell ya, and The Advocate. Below the caption is a Rice Logo featuring the group’s name, along with a two-paragraph statement of purpose. Original resource is a photocopy.
This is the first image of the support group, which officially formed in 1980. In 1979, Annise Parker gave Dr. Chandler Davidson a note with a phone number on it. He then called and heard a man say: "the gay students on campus want to form an officially recognized student group." Davidson agreed and sponsored the group.
