Lansing, Mich. – LCC is set to host Full-Court Pride, where members of the LGBTQ community can obtain valuable resource information with a backdrop of basketball and fun. The event will take place before, during and after the LCC women's basketball game Saturday, Feb. 10, 12:30-4 p.m.
LCC women's basketball coach Layne Ingram says, "Full-Court Pride is our opportunity to show mid-Michigan and the surrounding areas that LCC provides an inclusive and diverse environment for everyone. I believe this event will bring together many different types of people to raise awareness and gain support for issues facing the LGBTQ community."
Ingram also serves as associate dean for academic and career pathways at LCC, and was recently recognized by the Lansing State Journal as one of the "5 people influencing the issues of 2018." A staunch advocate for LGBTQ rights Ingram went on to say, "I am grateful to CASE Credit Union and the LCC Foundation for partnering with us so that we can bring this awesome event to our students, staff, and the Lansing community."
All of the day's activities are free and the first 150 people in the door to watch the Lady Stars take on the Grand Rapids Raiders will receive t-shirts. There will be a DJ, contests, prizes, giveaways, autographs from the LCC women's basketball team, light refreshments, resource booths with information for the LGBTQ community, and much more.
