UHS honors Pride Month
University Health Services is proud to celebrate LGBTQ+ Pride Month along with the accomplishments and contributions LGBTQ+ students, staff, and faculty have made to the campus community.
Visit the Gender and Sexuality Campus Center website for Pride events on campus, in Madison, and throughout the region during the month of June! Pride is celebrated in June to commemorate the anniversary of the Stonewall uprising in New York City on June 28, 1969, which most historians consider to be the birth of the modern LGBTQ+ movement.
We honor the strengths and resilience of the LGBTQ+ community. We also recognize that gay, lesbian, bisexual, queer, transgender, and gender non-conforming communities are disproportionately impacted by oppression, prejudice, and inequitable systems of power and privilege. We see this as a public health issue and we’re committed to supporting students through a variety of services, including our LGBTQ+ and Transgender & Gender Non-Conforming support and empowerment groups, gender identity consultations, and other trans health services including hormones for gender affirmation.
We encourage all UW-Madison students to learn about LGBTQ+ events on campus in celebration of Pride Month.
