In celebration of LGBTQIA+ Pride Month, Vanderbilt is inviting members of the university community to events offered this June through the K.C. Potter Center and the Glammadores LGBTQIA+ Employee Affinity Group, as well as community partners across Nashville. The community is also invited to utilize these Zoom backgrounds to celebrate Pride Month.
Pride Month, celebrated throughout June, honors the anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising on June 28, 1969, when police officers raided the Stonewall Inn, a gay club in New York City. The protests that followed served as a catalyst for even more political activism within the LGBTQIA+ community and paved the way for the first gay pride parade in the country in 1970.
