Riders and community members are standing outside of Oklahoma Baptist University. It was the 2nd year the Equality Ride visited the school. The direct action involved holding pieces of a tapestry honoring the names of LGBTQ. For the direct action, riders sewed the pieces together and carried the tapestry onto campus as a dedication to the school. Riders were arrested before they reached the Student Center where the tapestry was to be laid. However, OBU students continued taking it into the building.
