Pride Month

June 2022 was a fantastic month at MUSC—with guest speakers, panel discussions, the Student Alliance For Equality (SAFE) Pride event in the Greenway, and MUSC’s first-ever Wear Rainbow Day. We rolled out the first MUSC Pride marketing campaign, featuring social media posts throughout the month spotlighting members of the LGBTQ+ community at MUSC, “Fun Pride Facts” on internal screens around campus and, in a first for our organization, a rainbow MUSC logo on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn. MUSC also sponsored the We Are Family youth and adult Queer Proms. With over 700 total attendees, this was an amazing opportunity to meaningfully show our support for the community.

Each of these things on their own might seem insignificant, but our combined effort throughout the month made an impact and we heard as much from both members of the LGBTQ+ community and allies at MUSC. Visibility matters! We will build on this success in the coming year and for Pride 2023 as well!

Thank you all again for your support, advocacy and for making an impact at MUSC and beyond.  For those who are a part of this community, here’s a quote that Domenico Ruggerio from We Are Family shared with us at our “Power in Partnerships” program: “Your existence is your resistance.” You are worthy, you are loved and you make a difference just by being you.
