Pride Week

September 24-28

Check out the incredible lineup for UofL Pride Week 2018!!! This longstanding tradition on our campus grows stronger every year thanks to our many campus and community partners. This year we celebrate the Department of Classical and Modern Languages, especially the American Sign Language Interpreting Studies program! We are thrilled that Deaf Awareness Week and Pride Week will be held simultaneously, gifting us with the opportunity to raise awareness about issues impacting multiple communities through an intersectional lens.

It's Christmas Eve in Tinseltown and Sin-Dee (newcomer Kitana Kiki Rodriguez) is back on the block. Upon hearing that her pimp boyfriend (James Ransone, STARLET, “Generation Kill”) hasn't been faithful during the 28 days she was locked up, the sex worker and her best friend, Alexandra (newcomer Mya Taylor), embark on a mission to get to the bottom of the scandalous rumor. Their rip-roaring odyssey leads them through various subcultures of Los Angeles.


Film Screening: Love, Simon 
Friday, Sept. 28, 8:00 PM 
Floyd Theater, 3rd Floor SAC
Sponsored by UofL Student Activities Board 


Everyone deserves a great love story, but for 17-year-old Simon Spier, it's a little more complicated. He hasn't told his family or friends that he's gay, and he doesn't know the identity of the anonymous classmate that he's fallen for online. Resolving both issues proves hilarious, terrifying and life-changing.
