Cal State San Marcos and the LGBTQA Pride Center celebrate LGBTQ Pride in various ways and during several months each year. In July, we come together as a CSUSM community to celebrate San Diego Pride.

Before the pandemic, university community members marched as a contingent in the San Diego Pride Parade for 14 years. The first CSUSM contingent might have started with only six individuals, but the largest came close to 250 marchers. The number may vary each year, but our Cougar spirit is always second to none.

This year, the LGBTQA Pride Center invites the campus community to join us for a month of programming supporting San Diego Pride, including Pride Yoga with Shae from 1-2 p.m. and Pride Movie Nights & Discussion from 4-8 p.m. on Mondays; Spill the LGBTea at 1 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays; Queer News from 4-8 p.m. on Wednesdays; and YouTube Roulette from 4-8 p.m. on Fridays.

San Diego Pride offers Light Up the Cathedral on July 14, Virtual Pride 5K Run + Walk on July 16-18, the Spirit of Stonewall Rally on July 16, and Pride Live on July 17.

The LGBTQA Pride Center events are all virtual, and the San Diego Pride events vary, with some virtual and some in person.

For more information, check out the Pride Center’s Instagram page (csusm.pride). All links can be found in our Linktr.ee in the bio. You can also sign up for our weekly newsletter by texting LGBTQA to 22828.

We hope you will find a way to celebrate and honor LGBTQ Pride as a community member or ally.

Thank you and Happy Pride 2021!
