Welcome to the Pride Center (PC), a new area under the pilot program called the Social Justice & Equity Centers. We foster a supportive environment for all students, faculty, and staff focusing on the experiences and identities withing the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQIA+) community. The Pride Center offers events, programs and services focused on supporting and celebrating the LGBTQIA+ community, and the role of allies. Our goal is to educate the BMCC community on inclusion, allyship, and intersectionality.
All students are welcome to participate regardless of orientation, sex, gender, or expression.
The Pride Center acknowledges BMCC sits on colonized indigenous land, home of the Lenape people. We pay our respects to the Lenape community and elders, past, present and future, and to their sacred traditions, culture, and history. We realize we are honored guests on this land and strive to treat it with dignity, love and respect.
