This year Pirate PRIDE has been “revamped and brought back to life to represent a larger population of Whitworth than ever before,” said President Jessica Bondurant, sophomore. Pirate PRIDE strives to create a fun and safe environment for open conversation about the issues surrounding LGBTQ students. This is an inclusive group that welcomes LGBTQ students and anyone wishing to show their support.
The club meets every other Wednesday at 9:30 p.m. upstairs in the HUB’s ABC room. Many meetings are an opportunity to discuss LGBTQ issues, but the club also hosts activity nights involving crafts, games, etc.
Although they facilitate several big events on campus, Pirate PRIDE is currently focused on involvement with community organizations. Their next planned campus event takes place in April during the annual PRIDE week. For more information, contact Bondurant at firstname.lastname@example.org.
