OSU alums kick off inaugural PRIDE Corvallis events

June 26th, 2009

Kudos to Tristen Shay and Chelsea Whitlow, OSU alumni, for their efforts on the inaugural PRIDE Corvallis events this weekend.

From the PRIDE Corvallis web site:

PRIDE Corvallis is a group of community members dedicated to supporting the LGBTQ community of Corvallis and surrounding areas. We are excited to be hosting Corvallis’ first ever PRIDE event this June. We see PRIDE in Corvallis as an important step in moving away from seeing each other in terms of “straight� or “gay�, but rather as a place where we can remember that we are each others’ friends, neighbors, family, and loved ones.

PRIDE Corvallis is a non-profit supported by PFLAG (Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) of Corvallis and Albany.

You can see the weekend’s events on their web site including parade information. There is a nice article in the G-T about the dynamic duo.

The Admissions office supports the efforts of these alums in reaching out to the greater community!

    Great post and great story! One quick correction though…the “T” in LGBT is short for transgender, not “transsexual” as it appears in the post tags.

    PS: Chelsea and Tristen are OSU alums as well as employees :-)

    The Admissions Blog always appreciates accuracy.

  3. I wanted to go to pride in Corvallis this year but ended up in Seattle instead. I hope to make it next year but will be in Corvallis for a football game during my favorite time of year
