Pride/LGBTQIA+ History Months

Join us monthly as we celebrate a different community on campus. UWL Celebration Months amplifies voices from the many vibrant cultures and communities on campus. Join us throughout the year as we celebrate our friends and neighbors and gain a deeper understanding of our community.

The purpose of this project is to give others on our campus, in the surrounding community, and anyone that visits the UWL website a chance to learn more about different experiences and perspectives of the community that we are celebrating on any given month.

Allies and advocates are invited to share their stories.

UWL Celebrates

Pride / LGBTQIA+ History Months

About Pride / LGBTQIA+ History Months

UWL chose to celebrate and recognize two important celebrations in June; Pride Month and LGBTQIA+ History Month.  
For Pride Month, UWL would like to recognize and celebrate our Pride Center. Our Pride center has made many steps forward over the years to create an inclusive safe space for our LQBTQIA+ Community. 
LGBTQ+ Pride Month: "Commemorates the anniversary of the June 28, 1969, Stonewall riot in New York City, the incident that initiated the modern gay rights movement in the United States." 
LGBT History Month: Officially observed in October, UWL chooses to celebrate in both June and October. LGBT History Month, "celebrates the lives and achievements of lesbian, gay bisexual and transgender people in the United States."
