Run entirely by students, PrideWestern provides resources, health and wellness support, referrals, leadership opportunities, social support, and public education. It does this through office hours, discussion groups, socials, information sessions, and social events.
Through the programming it provides, PrideWestern strives to create a safe, welcoming space for people of all sexual orientations/expressions and gender expressions/identities. The spaces PrideWestern creates are supposed to be where support can be found, new connections can be made, and people can feel like they’re part of a caring community. There are many ways people can connect with PrideWestern: by volunteering to be an executive or on an executive committee, by attending our regular support programming (i.e. discussion groups), by attending our annual events (i.e. Pride Week, 1 Girl 5 Queers, Pride Ball), or by connecting with an executive at office hours or via appointment to discuss personal educational, social, and/or health and wellness needs.
PrideWestern also tries to make sure that its programs and services are accessible to everyone by offering them all free of charge. Executives are also open to any feedback and advice offered and invites anyone who feels needs are being left unaddressed or inadequately responded to, to meet up and discuss them. There are many ways to be involved with an organization as dynamic and multi-faceted as PrideWestern, so reach out and get involved!
