Biographical Note

The Pride Alliance opened on October 11, 2013 on National Coming Out Day as part of the Division of Institutional Equity and Diversity at UNT. The creation of the Pride Alliance was one of the final plumes in Dr. Gilda Garcia's cap, who served as Vice President for the Division of Institutional Equity and Diversity, before her departure in March 2013. The Pride Alliance was created to provide a campus office to specialize in resources on gender and sexuality and a safe space for marginalized orientations, gender identities, intersex, and questioning students. The Pride Alliance began as a branch of the Multicultural Center and worked to focus more closely on the topics of gender and sexual orientation, which are part of the Multicultural Center’s five areas of focus. In June of 2014, the Pride Alliance became an independent and fully staffed office. [Source: UNT Pride Alliance]

The Pride Alliance seeks to educate, engage, involve, and develop students on LGBT-related issues, awareness, and understanding on campus and beyond. They achieve this through a variety of programs and events, including National Coming Out Day, the Dallas Pride Parade, Transgender Day of Remembrance, the Diversity and Inclusion Career Fair, and Ally Training. Prior to this, several LGBT organizations appeared on campus, including GAUNT--Gay Academic Union of North Texas, and GLAD--Gay and Lesbian Association of Denton. UNT students organized in support of the LGBT community as early as the 1970s.
