LGBTQ+ PRIDE is the celebration of the lives, self-affirmation, dignity, equality, and increased visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, and many others (such as asexual, nonbinary, pansexual and Two Spirit) people as a social group. PRIDE, as opposed to shame and social stigma, is the predominant outlook that bolsters most LGBTQ+ rights movements.
PRIDE month is currently celebrated each year during the month of June in honor of the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan. Sadly, due to COVID19 many PRIDE events and festivities have been cancelled this year.
But fret not, The PRIDE Center and The Women’s Center invite you to celebrate LGBTQ+ PRIDE with us on Friday, June 26th at 8PM with our very own virtual PRIDE celebration.
Please join us for a one-hour virtual PRIDE party! All members of the LGBTQ+ community and their allies are welcome. Feel free to come with your very best PRIDE outfits and swag to get your dancing, joy and resistance on!
