June is a time to celebrate! We celebrate progress and accomplishments, and honor those who gave everything to forge a path toward inclusion of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, two-spirit, intersex, asexual/aromantic, and other members of the LGBTQ2IA+ community.

Keep an eye out for our weekly Pride Month Moments to learn more about the history, tools and resources for being an ally, and programs that support our LGBTQ2IA+ community. 

To our amazing LGBTQ2IA+ community we wish you the safety and space to experience authentic and unabashed joy, this month and every month; you deserve it. UAF would not be what it is without you. Happy Pride!
