RGU staff and students attend Grampian Pride

Pride at RGU

Every year we celebrate Pride to empower the LGBTQIA+ community at RGU.

On this page

Pride is celebrated every year in June to honour the 1969 Stonewall riots and the work that has been done since then to try to achieve equal rights and opportunities for members of the LGBTQIA+ community. It is also a month of festivities with events, such as parades, being held around the world to celebrate love and identity in all their forms.

At RGU, we mark Pride Month by giving a voice to our community members, raising awareness, and supporting the annual Grampian Pride March.


Join us at the Grampian Pride March and LGBTQIA+ events for Pride Month 2024!
