DUT’S LAUNCHES ITS RAINBOW SOCIETY
By Winston Sibanda
It was a colourful day as the DUT’s LGBTI paraded from ML Sultan campus to Mansfield hall to launch Shadows in the Rainbow society.
The march, which pulled a fair crowd, was the talk of the day last Friday.
Participants chanted slogans and songs which promoted human rights.
The theme of the launch was “Human Rights for All.”
Shadows in the Rainbow Chairperson, Aphiwe Matolweni said, the society was formed in 2011 and it did not get much support from the institution.
She said it was its first launch on Friday after three years of existence.
This year the institution’s Counselling Centre was involved. It vowed to support the society in a bid to combat gender stereotype.
DUT LGBTI Programme Coordinator Melusi Dlamini said, “This shows that as an institution we are adopting our country’s constitution. We are saying equal rights for all.”
