Pride Month (formerly Pride Week) is our annual celebration of educational, entertaining, and interactive events on LGBTQIA issues, as well as other intersecting identities. During Pride Celebrations, the center hosts events such as Visibility Day, a chance for the queer community to hang out on the quad and participate in a meet and greet; Safe Zone training, a three hour training designed to raise awareness and discuss ways to make the spaces we live and work in more welcoming and safer for LGBTQIA people, and so many more, with programming expanding every year. Every year we have a keynote speaker who talks about current issues and intersecting identities within the LGBTQIA community. —LGBTQIARCWebsite
Pride Celebration is an annual event. The event is organized by interns from the LGBTQIARC, as well as the Pride Month/Week Planning Committee and subcommittees, and is often (but not always, as such in 2011 and 2015) partially funded by grants from the ASUCD Gender and Sexuality Commission and the LGBTRC's own budget, among sources which vary from year to year. More information is available in the Center's archives.
The UC Davis LGBTQIA Resource Center presents: 2014 LGBTQIA PRIDE, May 5th-9th
REDEFINING conventional narrative that all LGBTQIA people are the same. Instead, we celebrate Pride in the diversity and unique experiences that we as a community have.
OPEN-HEARTS is what you will find in the LGBTQIA community. We believe in the power and beauty of building friendships and relationships with one another. Many times these close knit bonds are what help us survive.
ACTIVE and engaged people is what has gotten our community to where we are today. However, we acknowledge that the Trans*, Asexual, Intersex communities amongst many others have been marginalized for too long, and we are actively working to change that.
HISTORY must never be forgotten. It is in our history that we find ourselves and the tools that help us make a movement. Furthermore we want to bring attention to those voices that for too long have been erased from LGBTQIA History.
REVOLUTION might look different to every single one of us, but we hold the main goal of a revolution, and that is to enact change. Whether we are marching in the streets or speaking up in class we have the power and we must use it for change. We also recognize Love in its many forms as a powerful Revolutionary act.
