FRIEDMAN Contributing Writer After some students were offended by Jada Pinkett Smith's comments at Saturdayís Cultural Rhythms show, the Bisexual, Gay, Lesbian, Transgender, and Supporters Alliance (BGLTSA) and the Harvard Foundation for Intercultural and Race Relations have begun working together to increase sensitivity toward issues of sexuality at Harvard. Students said that some of Pinkett Smithís remarks concerning appropriate gender roles were specific to heterosexual relationships. In a press release circulated yesterday by the BGLTSA and developed in coordination with the Foundationóthe BGLTSA called for an apology from the Foundation and encouraged future discussion of the issue. According to the Foundationís Student Advisory Committee (SAC) Co-Chair Yannis M. Paulus , the two groups have already planned concrete ways to address the concerns that Pinkett Smithís speech rose. The BGLTSA release acknowledged that the Foundation was not responsible for Pinkett Smithís comments. But the Foundation has pledged to take responsibility to inform future speakers that they will be speaking to an audience diverse in race, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, gender and class,according to the release. Pinkett Smith was honored as the Foundationís Artist of the Year at its 20th annual Cultural Rhythms show, which she also hosted. BGLTSA Co-Chair Jordan B. Woods í06 said that, while many BGLTSA members thought Pinkett Smith's speech was motivational, some were insulted because they thought she narrowly defined the roles of men and women in relationships. Some of the content was extremely heteronormative, and made BGLTSA members feel uncomfortable, he said. Calling the comments heteronormative, according to Woods, means they implied that standard sexual relationships are only between males and females.
