LGBTQ-rights protest at Seattle Pacific graduation targets president

The Pride-flag protest at Seattle Pacific’s graduation went viral, but the demonstration is part of a nationwide effort to fight a federal Title IX exemption by religious universities.

Dozens of students at a private Christian university in Washington have drawn nationwide attention to their school and its policies on gay and lesbian employees after a protest during their graduation went viral.

A group of graduating seniors at Seattle Pacific University handed Pride flags to interim President Pete Menjares during Sunday’s graduation ceremony. Others simply declined to shake his hand and some told him that he should resign.
