Pride Parade set for Saturday, May 6
This week kicks off the 8th Annual Pride Week on the University of Mississippi’s campus. The celebration, which includes events across campus and Oxford, culminates with a Pride Parade at 2 p.m. Saturday, May 6. Southern Studies will have a table at Pride on the Plaza, the destination for the parade. Pride on the Plaza is an organizational fair with vendors from across town and campus. For our table we have made a Southern Studies Pride handout with student works, classes, exhibits and conferences that have focused on the LGBTQ community. Below is the handout information in celebration of this year’s Pride Week.
