The University of Toledo at Toledo Pride 2019

The University of Toledo has maintained a presence at pride parades and festivals in past years with our LGBTQA+ initiatives and our student organization Prism (formally known as Spectrum). For the second year, UToledo is excited to demonstrate university-wide support and are inviting departments, offices, and individuals to join us in attending Toledo Pride on Saturday, August 17, 2019. We invite everyone in the UT community to join us in this opportunity regardless of self-identification with the LGBTQA+ community.


Toledo Pride kicks off on August 16, 2018 and ends on August 18, 2019 with the parade at 12:00 noon on Saturday, August 17th. UToledo will be participating in the parade on Saturday, August 17, 2019 as well as the festival following the parade. The Office for Diversity and Inclusion will sponsor several tables at the festival. We hope that you and your family will join us on Saturday, August 17th at 11:00am to line up for the Toledo Pride Parade that will begin at 12:00 noon. The parade ends at the Pride Festival, which continues until midnight with various vendors, food, and family activities.

We are excited to announce that individuals who walk with UToledo will receive a free UToledo Pride t-shirt! If you are interested in joining us for the parade, please register by clicking here

We are excited to work together to continue making UToledo an inclusive campus!
