Pride Week

Held during April, Pride Week is the promotion of the self-affirmation, dignity, equality, and increased visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people. Pride, as opposed to shame and social stigma, is the predominant outlook that bolsters most LGBT rights movements.

Pride Week is a weeklong series of programs and events organized by the LGBTQ+ community at Virginia Tech. Pride Week 2022 will take place April 4th-April 8th.
