Lansing Community College

Each year, we celebrate the diversity, triumphs and contributions of the LGBTQIA+ community. Pride takes place in June to honor the 1969 Stonewall uprising in Manhattan. We are proud to join colleges and organizations around the country in this commemorative celebration to recognize the extraordinary impact that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer individuals and their allies have had on history locally, nationally and internationally.
