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.
