Not that any of this matters, because the Captain is just going to select classical pieces to play from those stacks using the golden ratio.

Very few did. Some of those GSA alumni have come together to partner with current LGBTQ+ campus organizations and the University Libraries to commemorate the 40th Anniversary of the event. We will speak with several alumni about the commemoration, the 1979 event, that time in Blacksburg and on VT campus, as well as the reason why the event has been considered successful despite wide-spread resistance and a general lack of participation. We will also play songs from 1979 to support this look back at a very different time in Virginia Tech history and in the history of American society.
