Pride Week Continues With LGBTQA-Friendly Events

Missed out on the Pride Week’s HUB Takeover on Monday? Don’t worry, if you’re looking to celebrate Pride Week, there are still plenty of events left to attend.

Pride Week is an annual event occurring during the spring semester, and it’s filled with discussions, rallies, and marches. The festivities are hosted by the Penn State LGBTQA student community in an effort to showcase pride and support for those who fall under the LGBTQ umbrella.

This year’s theme is “Roar With Pride.” The week kicked off with the annual HUB Takeover event, where involved students were spread throughout the HUB to provide information on LGBTQA-related topics. Tuesday continued with a Kiss Out sponsored by the LGBTQA Student Roundtable, as well as a speech by Rep. Brian Sims, the state’s first openly gay legislator, later that evening.

Below is a listing of the rest of the week’s events:


  • 10 a.m. — Ace and Aro: “What Does the ‘A’ Mean?” in 101 Boucke
  • 12 p.m. — Pride Rally on the steps of Old Main
  • 7 p.m. — Trans Panel in Freeman Auditorium in the HUB, featuring Fallon Fox and Kye Allums


  • 6 p.m. — “‘Angelic Troublemakers’: Queer Identity and Social Justice,” a discussion hosted by Dr. Bettina in Frizzell Room in the Pasquerilla Spiritual Center


  • 12 p.m. — Pride March, beginning at Life Sciences Building
