On Friday, September 6, UBC hosted UBC Pride which featured resource booths, activities and performances. Before the event took place, many UBC community members expressed cynicism, considering the university’s recent track record with the LGBTQIA2S+ community. We sent a few writers to attend the events and share their thoughts.

Pride was not always the colourful, fun parade that we recognize today. In commemoration of the original spirit of Pride, The Museum of Anthropology’s (MOA) August 3 event Pride at MOA: From a Riot to a Revolution commemorated the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, and reminded us of the violence and resistance out of which the modern LGBTQIA2S+ rights movement was born.

UBC’s old auditorium is filled with chatter as attendees shuffle into their seats and prepare to drift off into 18th century Italy. The overture crescendos through the hall, filling the empty spaces with cautious yet vibrant and celebratory tunes.
