UToledo to Participate in Toledo Pride Parade, Festival

Students, faculty, staff and alumni are invited to join The University of Toledo to march in the Toledo Pride Parade Saturday, Aug. 17.

“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,” said Dr. Michele Soliz, UToledo assistant vice president for student success and inclusion. “We invite everyone in the UToledo community to join us to celebrate our inclusive campus and city.”

A group of UToledo students, employees and alumni participated in the 2018 Columbus Pride Festival. Rocky and Rocksy also were in the state capital for the parade.

UToledo community members are asked to meet at 11 a.m. to check in for the parade at the corner of Adams and Warren streets. Look for the rainbow UToledo shirts to find the University’s spot in the parade.

The parade will start at noon on Adams Street and head toward Promenade Park, where the Pride Festival will take place until midnight.

“The Office for Diversity and Inclusion will sponsor several tables at the festival, which will feature food, vendors and family activities,” Soliz said. “Help us show our Rocket pride and Toledo Pride.”
