Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) students and alumni at Christian colleges are getting their voices heard publicly through a coalition called Safety Net, reports the Daily Beast.

Containing students and alumni from schools such as Biola University, Wheaton College and Fuller Theological Seminary, Safety Net's goals include helping LGBT students at religious colleges and universities, especially those who face discrimination.

According to the Daily Beast, about a third of the Safety Net groups are "underground." Members' identities are kept secret because they fear they might be expelled, lose financial aid or be cut off by their families.

Safety Net is planning to spread to 50 Christian colleges.
