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 Corvallisâ€™ 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 â€œstraightâ€? or â€œgayâ€?, but rather as a place where we can remember that we are each othersâ€™ 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!
