Celebrate 2SLGBTQIA+ Pride with AUSU

2021 October Pride

From October 25-29, AUSU celebrated October Pride Week! Why Pride in October? Well, we enjoyed such a successful Pride Month in June, we decided to do it again! We had some fantastic events, including, a presentation on October 29 by AU Faculty member Dr Tobias Wiggins, a Pride-themed takeover of AUSUnights, and a Pride AUSU Open Mic Podcast. We also shared a Pride Executive Blog from Vice President Community and Wellness Natalia Iwanek, community highlights, fantastic contests, and more!

Check out Dr Wiggins’ presentation on Trans Inclusion at AU, and thank you, Dr Wiggens, for your insights!

What about the highly anticipated keynote from award-winning, Two-Spirit author, Joshua Whitehead? We have great news – the previously postponed event has a new date! Join AUSU Indigenous Circle member Trishtina Godoy-Contois as they host this incredible presentation Nov 25, 2021, from 2-3 PM MT.

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 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!
