U of L Pride

Last year, thanks to the generosity of our campus and community partners, "Pride Week" allowed us to reach more than 2,600 students, faculty, staff and community members! Pride 2019 has already promised continued growth! This year we have received a more robust response from campus groups hosting programs and events than ever before, allowing Pride "Week" to span across the entire month of October! We can't wait to see you OUT and about again this year. 

Check out the official UofL Pride 2019 poster! 

Special thanks to our sponsors!
