Join Wits Pride from 20-25 August 2018

A flyer for Wits Pride 2018

Wits Pride 2018 takes place across Wits University from 20-25 August. The period is an annual occurrence which brings awareness to and celebrates the diversity of LGBTIAQ+* people at Wits and beyond. The Wits Transformation and Employment Equity Office and student society ACTIVATE Wits host Pride, in partnership with a number of organisations and departments within and outside of Wits University.

 Our 2018 theme is Not On My Watch. It calls on members of the University community and those beyond to challenge instances of discrimination against LGBTIAQ+ folk. People who identify as LGBTIAQ+ often face multiple forms of intersecting oppressions and do not feel safe. Wits Pride offers safe spaces to discuss intersections of violence, get information on sexual orientations and gender identities, find community in social events and celebrate the immense value LGBTIAQ+ people offer to our University community. 

Should you require accommodation for any disabilit(ies), please contact us to discuss how best we can support you. All queries related to Wits Pride can be directed to Tish Lumos.
