The University of South Carolina Upstate will host Butchy McDyke, an LGBT activist and performer, whose explicit goal is to teach students how to be lesbians, or at least better lesbians.
Her talk is appropriately titled “How to Be a Lesbian in 10 Days or Less.”
“Butchy McDyke” is the performance name of Leigh Hendrix. Her talk is funded by USCU’s Center for Women’s & Gender Studies, as well as outside groups, according to Campus Reform.
“How many of you want a lot more lady in your life?” she asks in her opening monologue. “How many of you want to be lady with a lot more lady in your life? How many of you are here tonight because you want to learn how to be a lesbian? How many of you are here because your daughter wants to learn how to be a lesbian? How many of you are here because your wife wants to learn how to be a lesbian? How many of you are here because you are a frat boy wanting to see some hot lesbian action? Well, you have all come to the right place.”
The performance is intended to kick off the Bodies of Knowledge Symposium, which focuses on gay culture.
Dr. Lisa Johnson, director of the center, declined to tell Campus Reform how much money the university was spending on the symposium.
“Until you call and ask how much money has been spent on heterosexual literature, I’m not going to answer that question,” she said in a statement.
