Q. What does Pride mean to you?

A. Walking through life as my authentic self free of fear and loving the fact that I am queer not despite the fact.

Q. What is your call to action around LGBTQ+ solidarity?

A. LGBTQ+ youth are more likely to struggle with mental health due to the negative messaging in our society. It is essential that we work to create a more welcoming campus for our LGBTQ+ students. As a member of this community I can tell you that the simple act of seeing pronouns in a signature line can be quite impactful. I hope that you consider joining me and sharing your pronouns in your email signature line. There is a lot of work to be done to ensure our LGBTQ+ students feel safe and welcome and this is just one small easy act towards that endeavor.
