April Spotlight: Campus Pride Month Celebrations and Student Organizing on Campuses Across the Country

April was Campus Pride month, and LGBTQ+ and allied student leaders organized for visibility and equality on campuses across the country. Campuses also held events and workshops to support LGBTQ+ youth leadership, activism, and advocacy.

Just a few of these events included:


April also saw LGBTQ+ and allied student leaders and activists join together in solidarity to protest anti-LGBTQ+ legislation, like students in Florida who, on April 21, led a Walkout2learn, during which students led a rally against legislative attacks on Black history and LGBTQ+ students and educators.

We are inspired by the ways that LGBTQ+ and allied student leaders are organizing for LGBTQ+ equality & visibility on their campuses in April and year-round. 

Student activism and stories are so important for illustrating the lived experiences of LGBTQ+ youth and empowering young leaders, which is why we at Campus Pride are launching a  storytelling campaign for 2023 that centers the experiences of LGBTQ+ college students.
