Celebrating Diversity and Inclusion Since 1948

Pride is a verb.

It means standing up for our rights, challenging injustice, and practicing active inclusion to bring LGBTQIA+ voices to the table. It means claiming who we are and claiming our space in the world—through our example, through advocacy, and through inclusion.

During SUNY Pride 2022, and all year long, we're inviting our students, faculty, and staff to showcase SUNY's commitment to the LGBTQIA+ community and the power of inclusion, equality, and justice.

Join us at the NYC Pride March

The 2022 SUNY Pride Art Gallery call for submissions is now open.
