Celebrating Pride Month
UCSF stands firm in our unconditional support of our LGBTQIA+ colleagues, students, patients, and community members. Links to Pride Month events.
Dear UCSF Community,
June is Pride Month, when we celebrate the resiliency, vibrancy, and tenacity of the LGBTQIA+ community. In this year, when state lawmakers have targeted LGBTQIA+ rights and introduced a steady stream of anti-transgender bills, showing up for and celebrating the queer community and its allies is more important than ever.
UCSF stands firm in our unconditional support of our LGBTQIA+ colleagues, students, patients, and community members. We are committed to protecting the fundamental rights — including access to health care — of LGBTQIA+ people, and to creating and maintaining a safe, inclusive, and equitable environment for all.
I invite you to show up and support the LGBTQIA+ community during Pride Month and beyond. Pride Month events include discussion spaces, an end-of-year gathering, the Out in Science panel, a film screening, the UCSF Pride Parade contingent, and more. You can learn how to participate on the LGBT Resource Center’s Pride 2023 website.
