LGBTQ Students File Discrimination Complaint Against Yeshiva University

Seven LGBTQ students from Yeshiva University have filed a discrimination complaint against the college, saying it has refused to authorize a gay-rights organization.

The “YU Alliance” — a newly created group of straight and LGBTQ undergraduates — filed “an initial report” with the city Human Rights Commission on Feb. 14, it said in an email to The Post.

The complaint “comes after several years of YU refusing to allow an LGBTQ+ club and suppressing LGBTQ-themed events,” the group charged.
