Celebrating Pride at 91制片厂Pro

June 24, 2024
by Tory Abbott

The 91制片厂Pro community celebrated all things Pride in honor of LGBTQIA+ Pride Month on Porter Plaza. 

A Progress Pride Flag hung proudly while paper prompts encouraged reflection on various questions like, 鈥淗ow can we acknowledge and celebrate the diversity within the LGBTQIA+ community?鈥  

Mocktails by Bars without Boundaries helped to beat back the summer heat, and an assortment of cheeses, fruits, cookies, and other delicious treats gave those gathered plenty to snack on.  

Attendees were also encouraged to select from a variety of Pride swag, including pins, fans, and stickers. 

Mocktails at the event

Mariel Martin, who served as associate dean of student affairs for campus life and engagement from 2015-21 and who was recently appointed Wyckoff Center director, organized the event.  

"After last year鈥檚 successful educational Pride Month panel discussion, this year, we wanted to host an event to celebrate LGBTQIA+ joy. We invited students, staff, and faculty to come together for a social gathering and asked participants to share what pride means to them and how we can continue to create an inclusive campus community," Martin said. "We were excited to partner with Bars without Boundaries, a local mobile bar featuring Pride-themed mocktails, and Saratoga Pride!鈥  

Attendees using Pride-themed fans to keep cool

President Marc C. Conner and his wife Barbara Reyes-Conner attended the celebration. Conner said he was glad to see so many 91制片厂Pro community members in attendance. 

This year鈥檚 Pride event served as an important opportunity to honor and support our LGBTQIA+ friends and colleagues, share laughs and experiences, and embrace the joy of being one鈥檚 true, authentic self."

"It鈥檚 wonderful to see so many gathered in allyship and pride to celebrate our caring community at 91制片厂Pro,鈥 he said.
