Join the Ship’s Got Pride! Fest on Saturday, June 26 from 3:00 – 8:00 p.m. in CUB MPR. The event is a collaboration with NYC’s Youth Pride and will feature a streaming of their virtual Pride.

In-person, the event will include a nail painting and body glitter areas, queer/trans coloring pages area, board games/card games and letter writing to queer/trans incarcerated folx through a partnership with Black & Pink, a prison abolition organization that works to support incarcerated LGBTQAI individuals. Queer/trans trivia with prizes will follow the streaming.

“Ship’s Got Pride! Fest’s partnership with NYC Youth Pride allows us to provide students, staff, faculty, and community members with the offerings and feeling of a large city Pride Festival that is otherwise inaccessible for many due to time, travel and cost. This event allows us to celebrate the beauty, resilience and diversity of LGBTQIA communities and to show that LGBTQIA individuals belong here and can make Ship home,” said alithia zamantakis, director of LGBTQ Programs and Services.
