UT Event Raises Eyebrows of Lawmakers
Tennessee State Senator Stacy Campfield is not a fan of an upcoming event at the University of Tennesee on the topic of sex. Sex Week as is is called is a week long annual event at the University. It's goal is to foster an open dialog among the community while exploring concepts of gender, love, relationships, sex, and sexual orientation. Campfield is not a fan of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender rights and doesn't think public funding should be used to talk about it. He twice authored forms of a “Don't Say Gay” bill that he submitted to the state legislature. Campfield has called for an audit of funding and UT's budget. The University says student fees and grants and that no money is appropriated for the event. The week will include seminars, movies, and other events.
