Beyond the Stereotype: There is Pride is a poster campaign designed to encourage understanding and empathy towards the LGBTQA community by giving people a platform to share their experiences and speak out against discrimination. The campaign features CSUSM students and staff in posters that we hope will facilitate a timely conversation on gender and sexuality, multifaceted and intersectional identities, and allyship. Beyond the Stereotype: There is Pride is led by the CSUSM Office of Inclusive Excellence in partnership with the Gender Equity Center and the LGBTQA Pride Center. The first Beyond the Stereotype campaign focused on the topic of cultural appropriation; posters from that campaign can be viewed on the 3rd floor of the CSUSM University Student Union.
The Beyond the Stereotype: There is Pride exhibit will be on display in the University Library Gallery throughout the Fall 2018 semester. Free and open to the public during all library hours.
A gallery reception and panel discussion "Identies of Pride: Beyond the Stereotype" will take place on October 11, 2018 here on the 3rd floor in the University Library Gallery from 6pm-8pm. This event is also free and open to the public (Visitors may purchase parking permits).
