Campus Pride expands “Tips to Laugh, Love and Cope” campaign to every day of week throughout Summer 2020

Campus Pride expands the Summer 2020 our “Tips to Laugh, Love and Cope” campaign on social media. We created this campaign to help provide a community, a safe space, and resources to all LGBTQ+ students and allies. During this time of protest and crisis, it is important to be kind to yourself, prioritize your mental wellbeing, and to be surrounded by community.

“Now more than ever we need to give a sense of hope, a real connection to community and safety,” says Campus Pride executive director Shane Windmeyer.

To make this campaign truly feel like a community and to spotlight queer people of color narratives and voices, volunteers Eduardo Vera and Charlése Joyce-Ramos, both former Campus Pride leaders, will be going live on the Campus Pride Instagram every day of the week – Monday through Friday  – to create a live, queer space for everyone to join!

For both of these volunteers, it about more than just chatting over social media. Vera says, “I have worked with Campus Pride for more than five years and it has given me both love and acceptance that I have never felt before, I wanted to make sure that other individuals had space where they could go to escape the current difficult times”.

Joyce-Ramos adds, “Students are looking for any ways to cope… We want to acknowledge, educate and promote a safe space of love and acceptance…”

Don’t forget to tune into our live queer space on Instagram Monday through Friday and to check out our social media daily for tips and reminders!
