Stephen Lovegrove, CSU student removed from work-study position for being gay, speaks to MTV

Stephen Lovegrove, a junior at Charleston Southern University in South Carolina with a 3.8 GPA who was informed this August 5th that he had lost his federally funded work-study position a resident advisor (RA) at his school, recently spoke to MTV's Act Blog.

Brian Martin

Brian Martin lives in Atlanta Georgia and has spent the last 20 years working in the telecommunications field as a management consultant and contact center manager. He was hired at a software company and was successful at his work. He was subject to several derogatory comments about his sexual orientation, age, and race by his supervisor. The more successful Brian was, the more inappropriate his supervisor got. He was told that he should “flame out” or that he should wear a tutu to an executive lunch.

Stephen Lovegrove

Stephen Lovegrove was a rising junior at Charleston Southern University in South Carolina when he shared on the internet about how he identified as gay and Christian, and the administration took notice. The administration brought the situation to Lovegrove's attention, expressing a fear that if parents typed his name into Google, they would find his posts about being gay and feel uncomfortable with having him as their child's resident advisor. He was then informed this past Monday that he had lost his federally funded work-study position a resident advisor at his school.
