Aztecs were among the approximately 150,000 people who attended the 36th annual San Diego Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Pride Parade and Festival last weekend.
San Diego State President Stephen L. Weber and Vice President for Student Affairs James Kitchen, along with 30 students, faculty, staff and alumni, represented SDSU during the San Diego Pride Parade on Saturday, July 17.
This year’s theme, “One World, One Heart, One Pride,” brought many from the SDSU community together. Associated Student executives and members of several fraternities and sororities also celebrated the LGBT community at the two-day event.
“Pride is always a blast,” said AS Diversity Co-Commissioner Janelle Fejeran.
“Associated Students represents all students. I’m glad we could come out to support the LGBT community and have fun as well."
SDSU has sent a contingent to the event for several years. According to SDSU Director of Diversity Aaron Bruce, more people join the group each year.
“I’m delighted to see such a diverse group from the Aztec community participating in Pride this year,” Bruce said.
