Ready for a close up? The President’s Commis­sion for LBGTQ+ Advocacy will be hosting the Faces of Pride event from 2-5 p.m. on Wednesday, Apr. 13 at Southern New Hampshire University’s (SNHU) Aca­demic Center Complex Learning Commons.

The event will show the diversity that SNHU has to offer and how the SNHU community is inclusive. It will show that there is a lot of support on campus. The event will allow people to have their pictures taken to signify their part of the LB­GTQ community.

Currently there are pictures on display in the Student Center from past events.

Gavin Telfer, Associ­ate Director of Student Involvement describes the event as being “for all mem­bers of the SNHU commu­nity (students, staff, and faculty) to participate in by having their picture taken and celebrating their per­sonal identity as part of the Faces of Pride campaign.”

The pictures done at the photoshoot will include the name of the people pho­tographed. They also list what identity they would like included on the prints, as well as some basic infor­mation on their personal story, which is optional.

Examples of the identi­ties that can be listed in­clude: lesbian, bisexual, gay, transgender, queer, and ally.

A person may share their journey of how they came to identify their gen­der or sexual orientation, and how this event benefits them.

Once all of the pictures are taken, prints will be made. Then, the pictures will be displayed at various times and locations around campus. These pictures em­power many students, staff, and faculty on campus.

Participants in this event with help to empower the SNHU community.
