The announcement was shared as a statement in Bluestockings Magazine, a feminist-minded student publication that writes frequently about issues of gender and sexuality. Queer Alliance is a student group that supports gay students and serves as a hub for organizing related activities, and Sex Power God, also known as SPG, was meant to celebrate the diversity of sexuality and bodies at Brown, according to the statement.
