Openly Gay Economics Junior To Take Over As The 74th Student Body President On April 21 At Texas A&M University
COLLEGE STATION — The students at Texas A&M University have elected their first openly gay student body president. A move that has made history and setting a hallmark for the Southern university. A move that students believe is a step in the right direction.
“To those of you who spoke poorly about me based upon my sexual orientation. I forgive you. I really do.”
A man that knew he was an Aggie before he knew he was gay, made the choice to attend the Texas university after a year studying abroad in Paris. Bobby Brooks, an economics junior enrolled at Texas A& M University in College Station will be the first to serve in the position’s seventy-four year history.
“I can’t express enough wholehearted thanks to my family who encouraged my dreams, to my campaign team who sacrificed countless hours of free time, to every friend who smiled and hugged me when I shared this seemingly ridiculous idea,” Brooks posted to social media after his victory.
“To those of you who spoke poorly about me based upon my sexual orientation,” Brooks pointed out, “I forgive you. I really do.”
