Notice: Pride Week 2020 Canceled

In light of the guidance that the University has sent out around COVID-19, the LGBTQ Center has made the decision to cancel Pride Week. While we are very disappointed to lose this chance to celebrate LGBTQ identity and community, we are also sensitive to the importance of social distancing in preserving the health of as many members of our community as possible.

 

Pride Week at Carolina will be April 6 – 13, 2021 

The LGBTQ Center is partnering with other campus organizations to host Pride Week at Carolina from April 6th to 13th, 2021.
