The University of Granada will fly the rainbow flag at the Hospital Real, the seat of the Rectorate, and on its main website from 28 June to 6 July to celebrate LGBTQIA+ Pride Month. The unfurling of the flag will also commemorate the 1969 Stonewall riots in New York City, which represent a crucial moment in modern LGBTQIA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, intersex, and asexual/allied) social movements.

In addition, the University will also run a vast array of activities from 2 to 5 July to support LGBTQIA+ pride, including workshops, documentary screenings, book launches, talks, debates and conferences. María José Sánchez Rubio, the Regional Minister for Equality and Social Policy, and Pilar Aranda, the Rector of the University of Granada, will inaugurate the week of activities by presenting the new UGR Pride Manifesto.

The displays and upcoming events demonstrate the University’s unyielding commitment to supporting LGBTQIA+ pride, showing students, staff and international visitors that our institution embraces the core values of diversity and inclusion.
