Deeply Connected at Any Distance: Pride Month at MSU

We’ve never had a Pride Month at MSU like this before. Our community is staying at home for the month, and now is a better time than ever to celebrate our resilience and strength.

The LBGTRC has put together a series of virtual programs for Gaypril on social media and Zoom. Stay “Deeply Connected at Any Distance” with us through Pride month and beyond.

Lavender Graduation

Even though commencement has been cancelled due to COVID-19, we will still be celebrating our 2020 LGBTQA+ graduates. Sign up here by April 3 to receive your graduation regalia, a certificate, and a link to our Zoom reception.

Pride Bulletin Board

Students asked us to create a digital bulletin board for Pride Month. See it below at the bottom of the page! The easiest way to participate in the digital Pride Bulletin Board is to participate in our social media campaign. We’re sharing daily prompts from our social media accounts. Tag your public responses (or any other Pride posts) with #spartanpride2020 and we’ll share them to our bulletin board. You can also email items to post to the bulletin board to
