Pride Week Celebration Kicks Off

May 12th, 2009

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.

    It’s nice to see a school that shows LGBT support. I am surprised that there are only a handul of 5/5 scholls on the west coast, since the west coast seems to be a bit more liberal. Anyways, congrats!

  5. I am also glad to see LGBT support. I dont know why governments have to get into other peoples lives. Even though I am straight I have friends that are not and my philosophy is if your happy then who cares. I am so glad that you guys put on this fundraiser, it shows a lot of class!
