Pride Week 2022

pride2022-website_banner.png

Pride Week is a collective celebration of 2SLGBTQ+ individuals and communities at the University of Alberta. The planning and implementation of Pride Week is a collaborative effort by students, staff, faculty members, groups, units, organizations, and individuals across U of A campuses. Everyone is welcome and invited to participate - come and join this year's events and celebrate being 2SLGBTQ+ and support your colleagues and friends! 

Our Pride Week community recognizes and embraces the origins of Pride as a political struggle for the rights, safety, and acceptance of 2SLGBTQ+ people, many of whom live at the intersections of multiple forms of marginalization by not only gender and sexuality, but also race, class, disability, neurological experiences, citizenship, age, religion, place of origin, and more. University of Alberta Pride Week is an opportunity to reflect on our campus and ourselves.

Can I attend Pride Week even if I'm not out?
Yes. Your identity is valid regardless of whether you are out or not, and we welcome all 2SLGBTQ+ individuals, communities, and allies that are part of the University of Alberta to attend. 
How are we fostering a safe virtual environment for Pride?

We are asking all attendees to register beforehand and will only allow those who have registered into the Zoom call. Details to the Discord channel will only be provided to registered attendees. 

To reduce the likelihood of deadnaming or misgendering (both of which are transphobic actions), attendees will be encouraged to change their display name on Zoom and Discord to their preferred/chosen name and to add in their pronouns
