The LGBT Resource Center celebrates LGBTQ+ History Month every year with an enormous pride flag display.
This display is one of the longest running traditions at the resource center, spanning over ten years. October is LGBTQ+ History Month, and the resource center celebrates this month with many events, deeming it OUTober.
“Our flag display kicks off the month of OUTober with which the LGBTRC hosts lots of events,” Sara Reder, a part of the LGBTRC, said in a written statement. “We want students to feel comfortable on campus and know that they have a community here.”
The display contains over 2000 mini flags to create one giant flag display. This display is placed in a heavy traffic flow area right outside of Pray-Harrold.
“This display is a representation of community and pride,” Reder said. “It’s important as it displays symbols of pride for all students to feel welcome and comfortable on campus.”
