SDSU Pride: BlacQ & Here

Black LGBTQ+ people are the backbone of the fight for equality, from activists like Marsha P. Johnson spearheading the Stonewall riots and Angela Davis aiding the civil rights movement. The Pride Center and the Black Resource Center are honoring the legacy of LGBTQ+ activists in the new series, BlacQ & Here. To honor the intersections of Pride and the Black Lives Matter movement, the BlacQ & Here project will highlight and celebrate Black queer SDSU community members as well as current and historical activists. In hopes of spreading more awareness, additionally we will be highlighting different organizations, media and more. This project is to serve as a reminder that our Black LGBTQ+ siblings have been pushed to the sidelines long enough. They will always be BlacQ and they will always be Here!

Inclusive SDSU

San Diego State University has established the Inclusive SDSU Communication System, based in the Division of Diversity and Innovation in collaboration with the Division of Student Affairs. The purpose of the system is to document instances that promote our campus commitment, as well as those that fall short. The Division of Diversity and Innovation will use these submissions to identify patterns, to recognize and celebrate extraordinary acts of inclusion, and to develop strategies for community improvement where needed. To help create a more inclusive climate, share your experience at Inclusive SDSU.
