Pride Month

This year, because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, UC Merced will be celebrating Pride Month online. Social Justice Initiatives and Identity Programs, LGBTQ+ Initiatives and the CARE Office have provided virtual programming to remind us of our LGBTQ+ history, celebrate the lives and accomplishments of our LGBTQ+ colleagues, and advance the needed advocacy. 

Merced County Arts Council is hosting a gallery exhibit, “Queer is … ?” The exhibit opened this week and will run through July 6, 2021, and features art and poetry by local LGBTQ+ identified artists. The gallery is open Wednesday – Sunday and is free to the public.
