Field House Celebration Kicks Off ‘Pride Week’

A Culture Cakes activity let attendees decorate cupcakes based on the different parts of their identity.

Pride flags and balloons suitably add color to the festivities.

Participants take brushes in hand for a painting activity hosted by PC Alliance.

A table full of "Pride Swag" offers buttons, bracelets and other giveaways.

Sunday’s rainbow-rich “Celebration of Color” ushered in the fourth annual Pride Week at Penn College, setting the stage for a full week of themed programming. The family-friendly event filled the Field House with a fun mix of music, zumba, crafts and other activities that will echo through the coming days. Also on tap are a Diversi-tea Dialogue about the college’s LGBTQ community, at 5 p.m. Monday in the Bush Campus Center lobby; a scheduled painting of “The Rock” from noon to 2 p.m. Wednesday; and an adults-only Drag Show at 8:30 p.m. Thursday in the Thompson Professional Development Center. There will also be opportunities on Wednesday for employee and student training on gender and sexual diversity issues.
