The Office of Inclusion and Diversity partnered with student organizations and campus departments to celebrate Pride Week during April 25-29.
Spectrum: The Gay Straight-Alliance at Auburn University, or Spectrum, is a student organization with the mission of fostering an environment that is safe and inviting for LGBTQ+ people at Auburn University through education, outreach and community.
Events held throughout the week included Bottled Up with Pride, the showing of “Rent,” Lesbian Visibility Day, Drag Camp and Pride in the Dining Hall.
“It’s important to let people know that they can celebrate pride and they are able to celebrate pride here,” Spectrum member Jordan Merriweather said.
The Office of Inclusion and Diversity works to provide education, programming and campus-wide initiatives that fosters community and equity for gender, sexual and romantic minority communities in support of an inclusive campus community.
