Harvard University predictably hired its first permanent director of bisexual, gay, lesbian, transgender, and queer student life. The only surprise I had was that this was the first one.
Van Bailey, the assistant director for education at the University of California, San Diego, will assume the position on July 16.
The article in the Crimson is predictable in every way but then comes the correction which is just too perfect. Here it is:
CORRECTION: July 3
An earlier version of this article used the pronoun “she” to refer to Vanidy “Van” Bailey, the newly appointed director of bisexual, gay, lesbian, transgender, and queer student life. In fact, Bailey prefers not to be referred to by any gendered pronoun.
How awesome is that?
