WSS Weekly Zine: June Pride

June 16, 2020 - Gabby Wahla, WSS GA

Hello Spartans!

Yesterday--midway through Pride Month-- the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 6-3 in three cases regarding transgender and LGBQA+ rights. Yesterday’s decision affirms that sexual orientation and gender identity are protected characteristics under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  This good news seemed like an apt time to release our Summer WSS Zine celebrating June as Pride Month. 

We at Women*s Student Services celebrate people of all genders and sexual identities and invite all students to express themselves freely. We also recognize the persistent fear in doing so within many communities. While Pride may often be depicted as a celebration of sexual identity, it is impossible to discuss sexuality without its attachment to gender. Today, Pride is more than just celebrating the freedom of expressing one’s sexuality - it also invites us to celebrate all expressions of gender.
