Pride Week at Carolina

April 4 - 8, 2022: Imagine Liberation

Pride Week at Carolina is a partnership between the LGBTQ Center, student organizations, University departments, and community organizations to host events that center themes of history, inclusion, intersectionality, expression, and advocacy within Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queer, and Asexual (LGBTIQA+) communities.

The LGBTQ Center is excited to announce that this year’s Pride Week theme is “Imagine Liberation.” This theme was inspired by Afrofuturism. One definition of Afrofuturism comes from Ytasha Womack, in which she defines Afrofuturism as “an intersection of imagination, technology, the future, and liberation.” While we have all been impacted by the heaviness of the events of the current moment and the previous year, we want to call forward visions and imaginings of what our collective liberation might look, sound, and be like.

All images and videos posted to the Pride Week website will include comprehensive image descriptions and/or transcripts. Due to a lack of funding, the LGBTQ Center will not provide live ASL interpretation or live visual descriptions.
