Final Week of Gaypril Calendar Events


Every year The Claremont Colleges community celebrates a month of LGBTQQIAA Pride in April. Pride month is a once-a-year opportunity for LGBTQQIAA individuals to enjoy visibility and support from a wide community, while celebrating our allies and promoting awareness about issues surrounding the diverse intersections of queer identity. The GAYpril calendar represents the combined efforts of students, staff, and faculty from organizations across The Claremont Colleges. In April we come together to celebrate pride and advocate for queer and allied college communities (and beyond) with events that range from social, to supportive, to educational, to just plain incredible!

GAYpril 2015 is here!

Please follow this link right here [pdf] to check out the full 2015 GAYpril Calendar! Or you can check to the right for a closer look at the current weeks' programming. GAYpril programming is a community effort  of students, staff, and faculty from organizations across all 7 of The Claremont Colleges. Thanks to everyone for coming together to create another amazing month of events and programs. With a line up of over 30 events, there is something in this month of pride for almost everyone. We're going to be quite busy attending as many as we can - and we hope to see you too!
