Reblogged from weirdlulls :

Two openly gay VCU employees may have been fired and demoted based on their sexual orientation.

They are the only two openly non-heterosexual members of their department, to my knowledge. Guys, this is serious—check it out. James Finley, Head Volley Ball Coach at VCU has been terminated. Additionally, Patricia Stauffer has been demoted. John Sternlicht, James’s husband, has posted a request for action (15 hrs ago- with over 50 comments ) on his Facebook page.

John Sternlicht: “OK troops, it’s time to activate! Here’s what you need to know: VCU President Mike Rao, president@vcu.edu and VP of Diversity Dr. Wanda Mitchell, wsmitchell@vcu.edu, 828-8947. Express your concern about discriminatory personnel actions in the Athletic Department against the only 2 out gay members, James Finley (let go after a 25-6 season with no explanation) and Patricia Stauffer (30+ year employee demoted from her position as Senior Women’s Administrator). The AD, Ed McLaughlin, who arrived in August never met with James or his team until he laid this bombshell. It appears he knew since his arrival he was not going to keep an out gay coach around, no matter how great his reputation and performance. He told the team he “needs someone who will represent the university well.” We all know what those “code words” mean. Encourage VCU to stick to what President Rao identifies as a core value: anti-discrimination/diversity.

Wow.
