USC celebrates LGBTQ+ History Month

LGBTQ+ History Month is back for in-person events following two years of Zoom celebrations due to the pandemic. There are many events and activities happening throughout the month of October that you can see at the University’s events calendar or the LGBTQ+ Student Center.

The center’s lineup of events kicks off on Oct. 7 with Drag Bingo followed by a faculty-staff social on Oct. 12. The center will also recognize International Pronouns Day on Oct. 19 with educational materials and giveaways in Hahn Plaza, followed a day later by Pride-Fest, which was canceled in 2020 and 2021 because of the COVID-19 pandemic. There will also be opportunities for students, staff, faculty and community members to volunteer at the Los Angeles LGBT Center South’s bimonthly Pride Pantry.

USC News also published a comprehensive article on the many activities happening this month.
