Pride Week Celebrates LGBTQ Community

The Utah Pride Festival parade included a group from the University of Utah to represent the LGBT.

Pride Week 2016 began Wednesday, Sept. 28 with a panel discussion at the Hinckley Institute’s Pizza and Politics forum. This year’s theme is Queering Safe Spaces and will focus on safe spaces and what they mean to people. Pride Week at the U will be Sept. 28-Oct. 6, and will include several events for people to attend.img_6876
