Guttman Celebrates LGBTQI+ Pride Month

June 3, 2022 | Events, Student Engagement

June is LGBTQIA+ Pride Month, and Guttman Community College is excited to honor and celebrate our amazing LGBTQIA+ community! The first Pride march was held in 1970 and has since become an annual civil rights demonstration. Over the years, its purpose has broadened to include recognition of the fight against AIDS and to remember those we have lost to illness, violence and neglect. The college invites students, faculty, and staff to attend some of the many events happening across New York City, including Pride celebrations and marches. Indeed, CUNY will be marching in some of the parades, and Guttman hopes that many of you will join us!
