In the Dallas Voice a article by By John Wright News Editor

"Dallas Baptist official says LGBT advocates will be allowed on campus, but Fort Worth seminary, Waxahachie school not so welcoming.

Harley, dean of spiritual life at Dallas Baptist University, said school officials have been well aware of Soulforce’s annual Equality Ride, a bus tour that takes young activists to conservative college campuses across the country in an effort to foster dialogue on LGBT issues.

Both Harley and Soulforce representatives confirmed that DBU officials have agreed to allow the Equality Riders on campus Oct. 24 for a full day of dialogue with students and faculty.

DBU is one of three North Texas schools Equality Riders will visit this fall as the three-year-old event makes its debut locally. Equality Ride 2008 also will stop at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth on Oct. 27 and Southwestern Assemblies of God University in Waxahachie on Oct. 29, according to a schedule released by Soulforce on Sept. 9."
