Pride Week 2022: Letters of Liberation

April 4 @ 8:00 am - April 8 @ 5:00 pm
The LGBTQ Center is partnering with other on-campus and community organizations to host Pride Week at Carolina 2022 from April 4 through 8. This year's Pride Week theme is "Imagine Liberation."
Pride Week at Carolina is a partnership among the LGBTQ Center, student organizations, University departments, and community organizations to host events that center themes of history, inclusion, intersectionality, expression, and advocacy within Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queer, and Asexual (LGBTQIA+) communities.
To counter the narratives that there is something wrong with us, create handmade messages for LGBTQ youth under 18 about the resilience of the past, their inherent worth, and things to sustain them in the struggle for liberation. Pass on quotes or song lyrics that sustain you. Share your wisdom as an LGBTQ+ peer or elder. Make art and crafts and new beginnings. Deliver hope. If you're comfortable publicly sharing your letter on TikTok or Instgram, use the hashtag #LettersofLiberation. Bring your messages to the UNC LGBTQ Center (SASB South, Suite 3308) and we will mail them to youth.
