The Marshall University Lambda Society gave the community the opportunity to tie-dye t-shirts Tuesday as part of Pride Week.

Participants brought their own shirts and tie-dyed them for $3 or bought a shirt for $5.

Luminary bags were sold for $1 symbolic of those lost for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered rights.

There is a luminary ceremony 9 p.m. Thursday at the Memorial Student Center in remembrance of anyone who has been bullied or suffered for LGBT rights.

Raffle tickets are on sale the rest of the week for $1.

Prizes include two tickets to FEST and a Bob Evan’s gift basket.

Half of the funds raised will go to the Huntington Cabell Wayne Animal Shelter.

Jada Williams, member of the Lambda Society, said this year has had a better outcome than previous years.

The members of the society helping with the event collectively agreed people are becoming more involved with the society and the events on campus.

“Most people won’t come to our events because they don’t want to be outed yet,” Williams said. “Most people don’t want to be outed before they are ready to be outed, and the worst placed to be outed is school.”

The Lambda Society meets 7 p.m. Mondays in the basement of the Memorial Student Center.
