The Pride Center

Our Mission

The Pride Center at San Diego State University aspires to provide and promote a space where LGBTQIA+ and ally community members can explore, expand, evolve, and embrace their understanding of sexual orientation, romantic orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. Through engaging the campus and community in critical learning and action, the Pride Center welcomes fluidity, redefining and reframing identity, and subverting dominant, normative definitions of identity and relationships with self and others.
