Host a Pride Month Program
This can be a lecture, dialogue, film, etc., that is specific to your unit/department or has broader reach for the UofL campus community (due to the Governor’s COVID-19 guidelines regarding group gatherings, we encourage Pride Month programming to take place virtually this year). The LGBT Center will aid in promotion and will include your program in Pride Month marketing efforts. If you have questions or would like to brainstorm potential events, respond to this email, and we can discuss further.
