Fifty-three years ago, members of the LGBTQ community and its allies participated in demonstrations at the Stonewall Inn in New York City, protesting the infringement of their civil rights and unfair treatment by the police. History views that moment as a turning point in the fight for equality for the LGBTQ community, which is why June is celebrated globally as Pride Month.
The University of Cincinnati and the UC Alumni Association are excited to celebrate Pride Month 2022 after two years in which in-person activities could not be held as usual. With several events happening that offer opportunities to participate, including the Pride Parade and Festival on Saturday, June 26, we look forward to connecting with alumni this month throughout June.
If you are interested in volunteering for the LGBTQ Alumni Network, please reach out to us directly at (513) 556-4312 or firstname.lastname@example.org. In the meantime, like and follow the Facebook page for more regular updates.
