As part of ACPA-College Student Educators International’s month long celebration of National Coming Out Day, this week the organization launched this video interview between Campus Pride Executive Director Shane Windmeyer and ACPA Executive Director Cindi Love. The segment recognizes the work of Campus Pride and helps to build awareness in higher education of the needs of Trans*, gender non-binary, gender queer and gender fluid students and faculty.
Campus Pride is a strategic partner of ACPA–College Student Educators International. Campus Pride serves lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) and Ally student leaders and/or Campus Organization in the areas of leadership development, support programs and services to create safer, more inclusive LGBT-friendly colleges and universities.

It works to develop student leaders, campus networks and future actions to create such positive change. Campus Pride produces the LGBT-Friendly College Fair Program and Campus Climate Index. The most recent edition (2.0) is described in this video and all of the campuses are listed.
