SHAWNEE, Oklahoma -

Activists pushing for the safety and acceptance of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students at conservative universities have met with students and officials at Oklahoma Baptist University.

Six members of Soulforce's Equality Ride demonstrated on campus Wednesday near a university chapel before an official asked them to move. They joined the rest of the group on public property and spoke with students about the Bible and sexuality.

Three activists met with administration officials to encourage the organization of a campus group for such students and their allies.

OBU junior Sara Quesenbury talked with members of Equality Ride. She said she grew up in a very conservative background but her studies have broadened her perspectives about humanity.

She hopes conversations can continue and divisions rooted in fear can be reconciled.
