2022 June Pride

Thank you to everyone who celebrated June Pride Week with us from June 6-10th, 2022!

We had a great turnout for the virtual drag performance by Party Queens*, starring dream Queens Felica Bonee and Jennie Talia. Thank you to everyone who attended! If you haven’t had a chance, check out the Executive Blog: Pride Edition! by Natalia Iwanek (she/they), your VP Community and Wellness to find out about Student Council’s 2SLGBTQIA+ advocacy work and new and expanding services for the Pride community.

2021 October Pride

From October 25-29, 2021, AUSU celebrated October Pride Week! Why Pride in October? We enjoyed such a successful Pride Month in June, so we decided to do it again! We had some fantastic events, including a keynote presentation and reading from award-winning Two-Spirit Oji-nêhiyaw author Joshua Whitehead (he/him) of Peguis First Nation (Treaty 1), a presentation on Trans Inclusion by AU Faculty member Dr. Tobias Wiggins (he/him), a Pride-themed takeover of AUSUnights, and a Pride AUSU Open Mic Podcast. We also shared a Pride Executive Blog from the VP Community and Wellness Natalia Iwanek, community highlights, fantastic contests, and more!

2021 June Pride

We kicked off summer with a week of recognition and celebration including a Pride Executive Blog, community highlights, a Pride-themed AUSU Open Mic Podcast, and more! We asked what 2SLGBTQIA+ Pride means to you by tagging us in a post, comment, picture, artwork, or video, and the response was amazing. Thank you for joining us for the 2021 June Pride!
