Pride Month 2023

Pride Month 2023

Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) celebrates Pride Month 2023 by honoring and highlighting the diverse identities, spaces, and contributions of the LGBTQIAP+ community throughout history. Pride Month centers and celebrates the wide spectrum of sexual orientations and gender identities of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer, Intersex, Asexual, Aromantic, Agender and Pansexual (LGBTQIAP+) individuals, advocates, allies, and communities. The “+” represents the additional identities and orientations recognized and those that are still to be discovered. Pride month is a celebration to increase visibility and honor the impact the LGBTQIAP+ community has had on history.

“Today, our Nation faces another inflection point.  In 2023 alone, State and local legislatures have already introduced over 600 hateful laws targeting the LGBTQI+ community.  Books about LGBTQI+ people are being banned from libraries.  Transgender youth in over a dozen States have had their medically necessary health care banned.  Homophobic and transphobic vitriol spewed online has spilled over into real life, as armed hate groups intimidate people at Pride marches and drag performances, and threaten doctors’ offices and children’s hospitals that offer care to the LGBTQI+ community.  Our hearts are heavy with grief for the loved ones we have lost to anti-LGBTQI+ violence. Despite these attacks, the LGBTQI+ community remains resilient.  LGBTQI+ Americans are defiantly and unapologetically proud.  Youth leaders are organizing walkouts at high schools and colleges across the country to protest discriminatory laws.  LGBTQI+ young people and their parents are demonstrating unimaginable courage by testifying in State capitols in defense of their basic rights.”
