Pride Month

 

This Pride Month, we are getting back to digital roots and acknowledging the history of queer folks in internet spaces. Long before quarantine, the internet and social media have served as important places of information and community for LGBTQ folx, as safe spaces, archives, and sites of self-discovery. Check out this year's Pride Month programs below:

        • We seek to create a world and a university community that is fully equitable, and which empowers agents of social justice for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people, and all those who face structural and interpersonal marginalization because of their gender identity and expression or their sexual orientation. We also believe in solidarity and collaboration, and in intersectional approaches to social justice that affirm the whole person and all things that can lead to liberated and flourishing communities. We are a diverse community of leaders who value inclusion, genuineness, and kindness as core leadership values. We seek to build communities and networks, to support our communities, to foster an environment that creates spaces for many and diverse leaders and voices, to educate others, and to advocate for equity.
