Help us celebrate our LGBTQ+ family at Indiana University. Friday’s programming includes the LGBTQ+AA Pride in Practice Summit. Alumni will give presentations related to: Black Queer Women in Higher Education, polyamory, Queerness in Art History and more.

In addition, we are hosting a Pride Soirée at Switchyard Brewery with additional local gatherings and activities in LGBTQ+ supported establishments to keep the festivities going for the rest of the evening.
