For so many of our current students and alumni, Emerson represents the beginning of their Pride experience; it’s the place where they found their voices and found themselves. Our College has long been a beacon of pride for those in the LGBTQIA + community, and we think it is time to celebrate that legacy—especially after the year our world has had. So this Pride Month, we’re throwing a party. A big one.
That is why this year, we are launching our inaugural Emerson College Pride Campaign: a month-long campaign that celebrates our LGBTQIA+ folx and raises money for the newly created Emerson Pride Fund. The Pride Fund will aid the people, programs, and organizations that serve our LGBTQIA+ community, fostering a safe, secure, and welcoming environment for all members of the LGBTQIA+ community at Emerson College. And when you make a gift from June 1st to 30th, you’ll receive a limited-edition Emerson Pride pin as a thank you. There is also a full schedule of virtual events throughout the month, including drag bingo, film screenings, a look back on Emerson pride through the years, and so much more. Register for the upcoming events here.
We cannot wait to celebrate Pride with our pride—52,000+ fierce Emersonians, and we hope you’ll join us in supporting and celebrating the next generation of LGBTQIA+ Emersonians.
