Pride Month Resources

Happy Pride Month! Throughout June, we come together at Queen's University to celebrate and honour the rights and achievements of our 2SLGBTQ+ community. It's a time to embrace diversity, promote equality, and foster an inclusive environment where everyone feels seen, heard, and valued.
