Voris’ New Guy Pal to Take on Political Correctness at Penn State

“Pray the Gay Away.” 
Edit: the latest in artificial rage.

 [Daily Collegian] These words, plastered on large posters above the face of British alt-right political commentator Milo Yiannopoulos, greeted visitors at Penn State’s HUB-Robeson Center on Oct. 25 — and again on Thursday. 

 Featured in prominent display cases in the HUB, tacked to poster boards, announcement forums and walls throughout campus buildings, and shared and reshared across students’ social media platforms, the posters advertise the Wednesday event by Uncensored America, one of Penn State’s student-run organizations. 

 When Penn State’s Queer and Trans People of Color Secretary Kyra Gines saw the posters for the first time, she said she thought the event was a performance or a satirical act with theatrically homophobic characters.
