After missing the entirety of Pride weekend, The Tab has decided to use The Lantern’s article about LGBTQ students coming out as a springboard for their own content.
“We like to think of ourselves as the unofficial Lantern, posting stories that are relevant to the students without the need to decorate campus with unnecessary paper that no one will read,” one of the writers for The Tab said.
After following up on many major events with reliable screenshots of tweets and quotes pulled from other news sources, The Tab has decided that Pride is yet another event they probably should have covered.
“Every Friday night, all four of us gather in my moms sun room to talk about our feelings and content for the site,” The Tab writer two said. “We thought what The Lantern did with the Pride article was cool, but they are too sensitive with people borrowing their work so we, as a team, all worked on this one together.”
While none of the writers actually made it out to pride, The Tab said they managed to find quotes for their article from credible sources of straight allies, who knew someone who came out as gay to get their take.
“This is why people love our articles so much, they’re different and relevant to everyone,” The Tab writer three said. “Not everyone is gay, so we must represent the voice for the student body through quotes taken from the average Joe.”
