CSUMB Pride Student Group

It is essential to have a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, Inter-sex, Allies, Asexual andPansexual (LGBTQ+) club on campus so that students have a safe community to join. Just as students at aUniversity are diverse, the clubs that serve them need to be diverse. It is crucial for those who identify as LGBTQ+ to have access to a club that creates a confidential, safe, and welcoming environment. Our mission is to also secure the presence of an LGBTQ+ community on the CSUMB campus and strive to create an LGBTQ+ friendly atmosphere by providing a visible community for ALL students to join.
