Looking to celebrate Pride Month in a meaningful and festive way? Close to campus, in  cities nearby, and virtually, there are options for everyone.

Here are four opportunities to celebrate Pride:

  • The first-ever Brandeis Pride Mixer: Stop by the 99 Restaurant at 110 South Street in Waltham for the inaugural Brandeis Pride Mixer on June 14 from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. . Appetizers will be provided and a cash bar will be available. The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, the Gender and Sexuality Center, and Brandeis Faculty and Staff Pride Alliance are co-sponsoring this new event. RSVP in advance.

  • A conversation hosted by the Rose Art Museum: The Rose will host "The Queer Lens: Photographers in Conversation," on June 15, 7 p.m. Artists Jaypix Belmer, Jess T. Dugan, and C. Rose Smith will discuss how they use the photographic image to construct queer visual histories through intimate representations of individuals with nonbinary, transgender, and gender-expansive identities. The conversation will be moderated by curator theo tyson. This is a virtual program.

  • Head into Boston June 10 for Boston Pride For The People: The celebration starts with a parade from Copley Square to Boston Common, followed by two festivals: An all-ages event at Boston Common and a 21+ event in City Hall Plaza.

  • A virtual tour of the Rose Art Museum's collection: Queer Bodies, Queer Souls: Virtual Pride Tour is a virtual program on June 22 highlighting the work of LGBTQ+ artists in the Rose Art Museum’s permanent collection. Led by Yasmine Vera, Education Coordinator, and Julián Cancino, Director of the Gender and Sexuality Center at Brandeis, this lunchtime tour provides diverse perspectives on gender, sexuality, and identity through the Museum's rich collection of modern and contemporary art.
