Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - A father of a transgender son is spreading the message of equality to students at NDSU.

Allen Keiswetter from Washington D.C. talked about the struggles that go along with "coming out". Students and faculty did exercises that showed them what it might be like to be gay. Keiswetter says it's important for parents to know they at some point need to come out too.

Allen Keiswetter, Guest Speaker: “For those who are gay, the message is it's alright to be gay and for those who are not gay, it's alright to accept the students who are gay.”

The talk was put on by the Northern Plains Ethics Institute.
