REVIEW: “Love Lies Bleeding” puts queer romance in the limelight—and kills

Kennedy Cole, Contributing Writer April 24, 2024

Queer. Romance. Thriller. On their own, these three genres have powerful connotations and large audiences, each in their personal, private way. It’s not often that these three words are placed in...

OPINION: Dear Campus Community, are we overcoming adversity or enabling it?

Hannah Markov, Editor-in-Chief April 29, 2023
Dear Campus Community, It’s difficult for me to express myself thoroughly sometimes. As Editor-in-Chief, that may be strange to hear, but anger, disbelief and disappointment come easy when spoken or written off-handedly in a journal. However, to emulate those emotions in writing for you all is a whole different matter. Anger, disbelief and disappointment. How else can I describe the feeling of knowing my own university celebrated a bigot?

The National AIDS Memorial Quilt remembers a generation lost to disease and prejudice

Nate Mauldin, Staff Writer February 15, 2023
As students return to class for the spring semester, many may overlook various artworks on display across campus. One such piece is the AIDS Memorial Quilt, which recently left the Cultural Arts Building and Randall Library as part of an annual display from Dec. 1, 2022 to Jan. 31, 2023. Each year the quilts spark local conversation surrounding HIV/AIDS and its impact on history. While only a temporary display, it serves as a reminder of the very real battle so many face against the virus even today.

REVIEW: ‘My Policeman’ is a compelling drama of love and self-exploration

Nate Mauldin, Staff Writer October 25, 2022
A romantic drama set along the English coast, the stylistic setting and poignant performances found in “My Policeman” leave audiences with a beautiful message about finding love and coming to terms with our innermost identity.

OPINION: In honor of Pride Month, schools should create mandatory classes on LGBTQ issues

Michael Friant, Contributing Writer June 28, 2021
This synopsis of my story is not the exception for many queer students, who are often leaving home for the very first time. With this being the case, UNCW should incorporate mandatory training for incoming and current students to both try to educate them on how to interact with and around LGBTQ people and alert them to be conscious of their fellow peers whom they do not necessarily know all that well.
