Oct 12

The LGTBQIA2+ Association for Student Success & Equity (LASSE) is co-hosting a series of events throughout October in honor of LGBTQIA2S+ History Month

Unlike Pride, which is a celebration of self, History Month is a commemoration, a more reflective time for us all to come together, recollect our struggles, and recount our triumphs. In short, October is “Our History, Our Voices.” 

Below are the exciting events and activities planned this month as we celebrate LGBTQIA2+ History. All who come with loving-kindness are welcome!

Out and Ally List!

This is the 4th annual list, which highlights LGBTQIA2+ students, faculty, staff, and administrators at RCC, as well as allies who are making a public commitment to take action this year to create a more inclusive and equitable environment for people with marginalized genders and sexualities at RCC.

If you would like to be included in the 2023 Out and Ally List, please complete the following short form by Tuesday, October 31st:
