The Rainbow Continuum is proud to present the 2009 Queer Pride Celebration, happening this week, Sunday May 10th through Friday May 15th. There are a lot of events going on this week including a freedom of expression wall, an LGBT Family Night, a BBQ, and a drag show. You can find complete details and descriptions about the activities on The Rainbow Continuum website.
The Rainbow Continuum is a student-fee funded organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, questioning, and intersex (LGBTQQI) students, and our allies at Oregon State University. As a social and educational group the Rainbow Continuum strives to create a welcoming and safe space for diverse communities to interact with and relate to one another; educate OSU about the experiences of the LGBTQQIA community; and refer students to the network of support structures and resources available to the LGBTQQIA community at OSU.
I know that Oregon State University prides itself in the fact it is rated 5/5 stars on the LGBT-Friendly Campus Climate Index. What I thought was interesting was that on their list of 171 schools, there are only twelve colleges/universities in the nation and one of only four institutions on the west coast that received the top honor.
Additionally, be sure to take a minute to review the OSU Pride Center website.
