Signature Events


LGBTQ+ History Month

October is LGBTQ+ History Month, a month-long celebration of our queer and trans cultural history. LGBTQ+ History Month is a once-a-year opportunity for sexual and gender minorities and their allies to learn more about important queer and trans leaders, historical events, and moments of pride often times left out of history curricula across the United States. 

Pride Month

April is Pride Month, a month-long celebration of our LGBTQIAP+ community. Pride month is a once-a-year opportunity for LGBTQIAP+ individuals to enjoy visibility and support from a wide community, while celebrating our allies and promoting awareness about issues surrounding the diverse intersections of queer identity. In April, we come together to celebrate pride and advocate for queer and allied college communities (and beyond) with events that range from social, to supportive, to educational, to just plain incredible! Be on the lookout for our Pride Month calendar at the beginning of Spring Quarter!
