For Kaj Baker... LOVE WINS

Kaj Baker, my girlfriend of a year and a half, was recently pulled into a meeting at her dorm, Scottish Rite Dormitory (SRD). SRD is a private all-girls dorm just feet away from the University of Texas at Austin campus. 

They told her that residents are uncomfortable with her sexual orientation, and that from now on she is not allowed to have any guests over whatsoever. Kaj recorded this half hour long meeting, and as admitted by SRD staff, this ban was based on no rule broken in the dorm contract, simply residents' complaints and homophobia. Her sexual orientation should never have been brought up to her in a meeting with the administration of her dorm, and their words and reasoning were unfair.

This meeting, and harassing comments from other residents in her dormitory have made her feel unsafe in her own home. She has been staying with me because of this, only going back to SRD to retrieve her belongings.

I am making this GoFundMe for my girlfriend because she doesn't deserve to feel ridiculed or isolated for simply existing and being who she is. Donations will go towards searching for new housing for Kaj and possible legal services. Please help support my amazing girlfriend through this stressful situation. Seeing her feeling this way breaks my heart, as this is not how we imagined our first year at college together would be. Kaj is the sun, and she should be shining right now- not being punished for being who she is.
