Coming Out Week

In conjunction with National Coming Out Day, Coming Out Week at UB celebrates the LGBTQ community at UB and encourages students to be their authentic selves. Events such as coming out workshops, drags shows, film discussions provide for a wide range of opportunities for the UB campus community to learn more about and connect with the UB LGBTQ community.

Transgender Day of Remembrance

Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDoR) is an international event to memorialize those killed in acts of anti-transgender bias. TDoR started in 1998 in honor of Rita Hester as the "Remembering Our Dead” project, Transgender Day of Remembrance has flowered into a worldwide phenomenon. A Transgender Day of Remembrance Memorial program is held each year in downtown Buffalo and we encourage all LGBTQ and Ally students to attend.

The Lavender Reception is an annual event in April that honors the academic achievements of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Ally (LGBTQA) graduating undergraduate and graduate students. We encourage everyone to attend.

UB celebrates LGBTQ Pride Month by marching in the annual Buffalo Pride Parade. The parade happens every year on the first Sunday in June. Any and all students, faculty, staff, alumni and their friends and family are welcome and encouraged to march with the UB group.
