Pride Month

Stetson Law Pride Month Logo

Pride Month is celebrated each June to celebrate and commemorate LGBTQ+ pride. Pride Month began after the Stonewall riots, a series of gay liberation protests in 1969, and has since spread to a global celebration. 

As a community of learners and advocates for justice and equality, Stetson University College of Law is honored to provide students, faculty, and staff with a resource to learn and celebrate the accomplishments of the LGBTQ+ communities. In addition to joining this national celebration, Stetson Law invites you to explore this community resource page and participate in the St. Petersburg Pride Parade with Stetson Law's Lambda Legal Society.

While this page is the result of a collaborative effort, it is not a comprehensive resource. We encourage students, faculty, and staff to explore other resources and to feel free to share those that may add to the richness of this page. Please email any insights to [email protected].
