Each month PRIDE offers at least two in-person gatherings and will offer more virtual experiences next year.
The PRIDE organization is a group of open-minded and accepting students that may be going through similar, or different experiences that you are going through. Students share, listen and learn from each other and from the group leader. Topics of discussion have included: different identities, the pride flags, LGBTQ+ history and current issues, art, media, self-esteem, body-image, acceptance, coming out, and more.
